Onboard Dynamics has delivered one of its GoFlo CNG80 mobile compressor units to NW Natural, the largest independent natural gas utility in the Pacific Northwest.
The unit is being used to fill tube trailers for bringing compressed natural gas (CNG) to where it is needed throughout the company’s service territory. It can also be used to compress renewable natural gas (RNG) into tube trailers at remote locations for injection into distribution systems.
The GoFlo compressor is powered by natural gas, unlike similar compressors that are powered by electricity. This allows the unit to be moved to remote locations to assist with maintenance projects or can be used to quickly establish a CNG refueling station at locations where the infrastructure does not currently exist.
“The GoFlo has a unique design that we feel will help to expand CNG adoption throughout the Northwest,” says Chris Kroeker, product manager for natural gas vehicles at NW Natural. “We’re excited to test its performance as we incorporate it into our operations.”
