Inox India Commissions India's First LNG Dispensing Station

Inox India has commissioned India's first LNG dispensing station at Dahej in the Bharuch district in the state of Gujarat, it said in a statement December 10.

The LNG station would dispense fuel to the buses which are expected to ferry staff of Petronet LNG from Bharuch town to Petronet LNG terminal in Dahej, which is located at a distance of 50-km. “Besides being cost-efficient, the use of LNG as a clean fuel would lead to a reduction in air pollution and noise pollution. The initiative would also considerably bring down the vehicle maintenance cost as compared to diesel buses,” the company said.

Inox India CEO Deepak Acharya said that the company has a vision of commissioning 25 more LNG/LCNG dispensing stations in the coming two years across the country.

“Setting up of India's first LNG dispensing station is a momentous occasion in the history of Inox India. More than a business milestone, the commissioning of India's first LNG dispensing station for us is like fulfilling our responsibility towards the environment, and society at large,” Acharya said.

Inox India is a manufacturer of cryogenic storage, re-gas and distribution systems for LNG, industrial gases and cryo-scientific applications with operations in India, Brazil and Europe.
