Cryopeak LNG Solutions Corporation says it has completed the largest ever delivery of LNG by truck in the Northwest Territories, with 18,000 gallons being delivered to a power generation facility in Inuvik.
The facility is owned by Northwest Territories Power Corporation (NTPC), where natural gas is the primary fuel to support this northern community. The delivery is in line with the continued focus of NTPC to make low carbon electricity available across NWT. It extends the longstanding relationship between Cryopeak and NTPC, where Cryopeak has delivered LNG reliably to Inuvik for three years.
The shipment of LNG totaled approximately 18,000 gallons and was made possible by Cryopeak's proprietary "Super B-Train" transportation trailer.
“Cryopeak's mission is to provide LNG to remote locations in the most reliable, sustainable and economic manner possible,” the company said.
The Super B-Train and Cryopeak's LNG production facility in Fort Nelson, are critical pieces towards realizing this mission.
Cryopeak primarily focuses its fuel delivery efforts on the mining and industrial heating industries as well as in support of power generation in remote communities through commercial partnerships that help their customers reduce carbon footprint, lower energy costs and maximize operational efficiencies.
The Super B-Train is designed with up to 70% greater load capacity than standard trailers operating in Canada today, improving LNG's competitiveness as a fuel source for remote mining locations and communities. Understanding that transportation often represents the largest cost of LNG for customers, “NTPC was eager to work with Cryopeak on this initiative.”
"It is the culmination of years of planning to deliver LNG in our Super B-Train to a community located 200 km north of the Arctic Circle and approximately 100 km from the Arctic Ocean." said Aleksandar (Saša) Cook, SVP of Cryopeak.
"It's a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone in our Cryopeak team as well as the continued support and shared vision of our financial sponsor, BP Energy Partners."
