General Physics to Build LNG and LCNG Fueling Facilities in US

General Physics Corporation has been awarded a contract by the City of Los Angeles's Department of General Services Fuel Services and the Environmental Compliance Division Alternative Fuels Group for the design and construction of a liquefied natural gas and liquefied-to-compressed natural gas fueling station.

The contract also includes upgrades to an existing vehicle maintenance facility to enable indoor maintenance and repair of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles. General Physics was awarded the fixed-priced contract through a competitive bidding process.

The fueling station portion of the project includes the design and construction of an LNG/LCNG fueling station that will include four 15,000-gallon LNG storage vessels, LNG offload and dispenser pumps, LNG vaporizers, six LNG dispensers, high pressure LNG pumps and vaporizers, two CNG dispensers, backup generator, and safety and control systems.

The vehicle maintenance facility portion of the contract includes replacement of existing overhead doors, installation of a new ventilation system and upgrade of existing electrical systems to allow indoor repair of CNG and LNG vehicles, and a backup generator.
