GreenLine’s New CNG Compressor

GL-70 Is a Quiet, Self-Contained Unit Aimed at Medium-Size Fleets

Marrying the best of Austrian compressors with U.S. technology, GreenLine Fuel Corp has developed a quiet, self-contained and fully integrated CNG fueling system sized for medium fleets.

At the heart of the GL-70 is a multi-stage compressor by LMF, enclosed in a soundproofed protective container. The system provides up to 70 gasoline gallon equivalents per hour, and can dispense up to 840 GGE per day, even with low inlet pressures.

The prototype was shown at ACT Expo 2013 in Washington, D.C. last week.

“We are the U.S. distributor for LMF, so it made sense to take the best of Austrian compressor technologies with the 125-horsepower, direct drive, five stage LMF, and package it for the U.S. market,” says VP Justin Beerer.

Packaged in California

“GreenLine builds the whole package in Temecula, Calif.,” he says, “to conform to U.S. laws and standards.”

Acoustic liners reduce generator noise to just 60 dB outside the container, he says.

Production of the first two GL-70s will begin in the next couple of months. List price, which Beerer says varies as every application is different, is “in the high $200,000s – low $300,000s.”

GreenLine’s GL-24 provides up to a 11.4 GGE per hour, the company says, “making it a fit for environments that require up to 120 GGE per day.”
