Small Versatile CNG Unit Is Said to Be the First in the U.S.
Italy’s Cubogas confirms installation of a Cubogas Pocket compressed natural gas fueling unit at the Impco Automotive facility in Sterling Heights, Mich.
“Cubogas has designed this system to offer a cost effective solution to those customers that want to start using CNG without spending a fortune,” Cubogas sales manager Francesco Donalisio says in a report that likewise noted Impco’s unit to be the first for a Cubogas Pocket in the U.S.
Like Impco, Cubogas is a subsidiary of Fuel Systems Solutions, Inc.
Two More for the U.S. Soon
Cubogas describes the Pocket CNG unit as a compact, integrated, plug-and-fill station with a “broad range of inlet pressures… engineered to be easily installed and relocated.”
The Cubogas Pocket has a 50-horsepower electric motor, a gas aircooler for interstage and compressor final discharge, and 47 gasoline gallon equivalents of CNG storage. It is available with or without an integrated dispenser and can reportedly fill a vehicle at a rate of about one GGE per minute.
Two more units are to be in place with U.S. customers by year-end, the report said.
