INOX India Commissions Country's First LNG Dispensing Station at Dahej, Gujarat

One of the global leaders in cryogenic liquid storage, distribution and re-gas solutions, INOX India commissioned the country’s first LNG Dispensing Station at Dahej in the Bharuch district, Gujarat. The LNG station has been commissioned at the Petronet LNG Terminal.

Deepak Acharya, CEO, INOX India, comments, “Setting up of India's first LNG dispensing station is a momentous occasion in the history of INOX India. More than a business milestone, the commissioning of India's first LNG dispensing station for us is like fulfilling our responsibility towards the environment, and society at large. We have a vision of commissioning 25 more LNG/LCNG dispensing stations in the coming 2 years across the country. I also take this opportunity to thank Petronet LNG, TATA Motors and Petroleum & Explosive Safety Organization for being a part of this milestone”.

Being cost-efficient, the use of LNG as a clean fuel would reduce air pollution and noise pollution. The stations would dispense fuel to the buses which are expected to ferry staff of Petronet LNG from Bharuch town to Dahej, which is 50 km. It also brings down the vehicle maintenance cost as compared to diesel buses. The initiative also supports the Government of India’s vision to rise the use of natural gas in the country’s energy mix that allows the use of safe and environment-friendly fuel across different parts of the country.

Established in 1992, INOX India is now a market leader in the highly challenging field of vacuum insulated cryogenic equipment in India and across the world. It has created a wide-ranging portfolio of materials and engineering intellectual properties such as cryogenic standard products, cryogenic engineered tanks, and systems, large ASU SVD projects, LNG turnkey solutions and more.
