Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has launched a new low-cost separation and vapor containment system for natural gas vehicle maintenance and storage facilities.
The NGV Easy Bay is the first code-compliant fabric barrier system utilizing an industrial curtain designed for quick, cost-efficient installation and operation, the company explained.
Developed by Clean Energy’s facility modification team, NGV Easy Bay can be installed in a matter of days. Custom fabricated panels are scalable to accommodate a single bay isolation project or can be used to divide a large building servicing or storing multiple vehicles.
The system is scalable from a single bay or to divide a large building and there is a retractable option for convenient storage.
“With NGV Easy Bay, customers now have an unprecedented and cost-effective option available to adapt their facility for NGVs,” said Tim Newman, general manager of Clean Energy’s facility modification group. “As fleets across the country convert their vehicles to natural gas, a growing need has emerged for a scalable and practical solution to modify facilities. NGV Easy Bay meets these needs remarkably well.”
According to Clean Energy, NGV Easy Bay eliminates the costly and time-consuming requirements of conventional construction approaches by using industrial fabrics rigorously tested to meet ASTM standards for exposure to CNG and LNG. This unique application is part of a suite of turnkey design and modification services offered by Clean Energy’s in-house team of facility modification specialists.
