Onboard Dynamics has declared the launch of its GoFlo CNG-80 mobile natural gas compressor for commercial use. The compression capacity of the GoFlo CNG-80 compressor makes it cost effective for smaller fleets of compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles, and for the initial deployment of CNG vehicles in larger fleets.
Rita Hansen, CEO of Onboard Dynamics believes that the low cost and flexibility associated with the GoFlo product will only lead to an increased attractiveness of operating vehicles. “Because it is self-powered, the GoFlo compressor provides cost saving and new capabilities to the CNG industry,” she added.
The modular design of the GoFlo compressor ensures fleet operators the opportunity to expand their CNG vehicle inventory by increasing GoFlo units as demand increases, without needing costly electrical power upgrades.
The GoFlo compressor is easy to relocate in the event that a CNG fleet needs to be redeployed, and the unit can serve as a backup to dedicated CNG refuelling stations. In addition, freedom from electricity supports the operating reliability of CNG fleets in the event of a natural disaster.
A limited number of GoFlo CNG-80 compressors will be available for delivery the second quarter of 2018 before production increases up the second half of the year.
