Kinetrex introduced a virtual pipeline of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) with mobile, onsite storage and vaporization to meet the challenges faced by Hubner. LNG is a cleaner burn than propane and does not leave behind carbon residue. As a result, Hubner reduced their in- season maintenance 50% or more. The cleaner burn of LNG also yielded an equivalent temperature rise to propane.
Kinetrex LNG production easily met Hubner’s significant fuel demand. Kinetrex is the largest LNG manufacturer in the Midwest, with 24 million gallons of storage capacity and two LNG manufacturing plants.
Hubner received a turnkey LNG system from Kinetrex at no cost, which included mobile storage and vaporization, installation, and ongoing LNG system operation. Minimal site preparation and space were needed for the setup.
- Two LNG mobile vaporization trailers
- Two 11,000 gal cryogenic storage tanks
- PLC with remote monitoring
