LIQAL and TSG join forces in LNG fuelling technology

LIQAL and TSG join forces in LNG fuelling technology

LIQAL and Technical Services Group (TSG) have signed a partnership for the reselling and servicing of dispensers and fuelling systems for LNG.

TSG, formerly known as Tokheim Solutions, is the distributor of Tokheim fuelling technology and is the “market leader” in delivery and maintenance of fuelling installations for the traditional fuels.

LIQAL is a supplier specialised in the design, engineering, production and delivery of complete fuelling installations for LNG and hydrogen (H2). Several international LNG station operators already work with a LIQAL fuelling system, foreseen with LIQAL LNG fuel dispensers.

Both parties combine their experience and know-how in order to increase their reach and technology offering, and to be able to offer customers optimal all-in solutions. 

Jorg Raven, CEO of LIQAL, said, “We are very happy with this partnership. TSG has a leading position in the fuel market and an excellent covering network of service specialists that offer 24/7 availability. Also their quality and safety objectives correspond to our brand and what we stand for. This partnership enables us to provide the users of our technology in different countries with quality aftercare.” 

TSG Netherlands’ Managing Director, Mario Boere, added, “Via this partnership we can, aside from our current technology and services for the more traditional fuels, give substance to the growing and promising market for LNG with the innovative and high quality systems of LIQAL. 

A press release reinforced, “Due to the benefits on both an ecological and an economical level, the adoption of the transport fuel LNG has increased rapidly. Now that several renowned truck suppliers such as Volvo, Scania and Iveco deliver ex-factory trucks, more transporters choose for this fuel. Thanks to the brand-new cooperation between LIQAL and TSG, both current LNG station operators as well as the service station owners that are considering LNG, are now guaranteed a future-proof technology and a reliable operation.”

LIQAL obtains patent for LNG dispenser technology

LIQAL obtains patent for LNG dispenser technology

LIQAL, turnkey supplier of small-scale LNG and hydrogen (fuelling) installations, obtained a patent for a unique feature that is included in its dispenser for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).

The LNG fuel dispensers, designed and produced by LIQAL, comply with all standards to sell LNG as transport fuel including the Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) and are fully certified to operate on the European market.

A patent has been obtained for the nozzle docking bay, which is integrated in LIQAL’s latest dispenser line. This docking bay is heated and purged in order to ensure tension-free connection and de-coupling of the nozzles to and from LNG-powered vehicles, as well as long life of nozzle seals and hoses.

The latest LIQAL dispenser has been implemented at the forecourt of various LNG station operators across North-West Europe who are convinced of its benefits compared to traditional dispensing- and docking devices.

Inno4Life develops and builds machines for the top ten pharmaceutical companies worldwide. The organization offers solutions to companies in various areas e.g. automated filling systems, loading systems and fits robot and vision technology. 
 
The pharmaceutical industry is continuously changing as a result of mergers or reorganizations. The level of automation intensifies, prices are under pressure and legislation is getting stricter. Johan Klootwijk, CEO Inno4Life: "Innovations in production processes are necessary for pharmaceutical companies. Companies have to comply with increasingly strict legislation and at the same time produce more efficiently and more effectively than competitors. Partly because of these developments, it is essential that specialist suppliers innovate continuously."
 
Innovation by new legislation

In 2019 all packages of prescription medicines need to be provided with a unique code. Pharmaceutical manufacturers print these unique codes on the packaging.

KIKK Capital invests in LIQAL

KIKK Capital invests in LIQAL

KIKK Capital and BOM (Brabant Development Agency) have invested in LIQAL, a Dutch company that builds LNG and hydrogen fuelling stations for the transport sector. 

LIQAL’s technology makes LNG (liquefied natural gas) more attractive as a replacement for diesel fuel in the heavy road and water transport sector. The use of hydrogen and LNG contributes to improved air quality, is better for the climate and provides financial benefits to transport companies.

The investment will allow LIQAL to continue to grow both in the Netherlands and abroad. In the immediate future, the company intends to recruit additional personnel, some of whom will be engaged to head new projects. LIQAL also intends to use the capital to boost innovation and strengthen its financial stability.

“We want clean, gaseous fuels to become mainstream instead of diesel in the heavy road and water transport sector,” says LIQAL CEO Jorg Raven. “That’s what you see happening right now. We’re proud that KIKK Capital and BOM are showing their confidence with this investment, which will allow us to contribute to a cleaner transport sector.” 

“LIQAL is playing into a trend that actually started to emerge quite some time ago. The market for LNG is really just on the verge of maturing,” says Johan Sebregts. His colleague Patrick Lems adds: “LIQAL is a young, driven company with an innovative technology that is already being used by some industry-leading parties. That’s great to see.”
