Storage, the ability to transport outside the pipeline network and the technology with easy regasification unlock new opportunities for market development, especially for gas companies.
Construction: Construction companies operating asphalt plants. Most current plants operate with compressed natural gas. Difficulties with complex logistics delivering compressed natural gas (CNG), taking into account the relatively small amount of fuel that is transported by CNG trailers. Companies are interested in introducing LNG due to improved liquefied natural gas logistics and the possibility of storing larger quantities on site (better safety).
In the hotel industry – In non-urban hotel complexes (coast, islands, mountain areas) alternative sources (mainly LPG) are used as fuel. A significant number of hoteliers have expressed interest in the possibility of replacing their current LNG fuel. Higher gas supply, economic efficiency, easy reconstruction of existing gas installations and the environmental aspect are the most frequently mentioned reasons.
In the field of agriculture – These are mainly tobacco or fruit dryers that currently use compressed natural gas (CNG). Taking into account the fact that in these companies the load is seasonal and when the facilities are in operation, they are used at full capacity. LNG with the possibility of gas supply only during the season and also in locations outside the coverage of the gas pipeline are an ideal solution.
In the food industry – Meetings were held with representatives of dairies and meat processing companies. They are considering a partial replacement of their current fuel. In addition to price, the main factor is the purity of LNG from an ecological point of view.
In food and fisheries, excess cold during the LNG regasification process is also used as a freezing medium for food, meat and fish.
