Company supplies several site-critical components for CNG depot
Barnstaple, 11. March 2020 – Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, is helping maintain safety and reduce the environmental impact of BakuBus’ newest Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) filling station in Azerbaijan.
Fitted with fourteen CNG dispensers, six CNG compressors, three gas dryers and three chillers, the CNG filling station, which is located in the Narimanov district of Baku city, will be used by 300 buses of BakuBus LLC.
As global leaders in providing natural gas solutions, Parker was approached by ENERAZ LLC, engineering subcontractor of Azpetrol Ltd. LLC and the biggest operator of filling stations in Azerbaijan, to provide several site-critical CNG distribution tube lines.
Murad Jafarov, Parker’s Azerbaijan Area Manager, said: “As with all high-pressure gas fuelling systems, ensuring environmentally-safe CNG distribution was one of the main priorities for Azpetrol. This is something we’ve been able to guarantee by providing tubes and fittings that have been specifically designed to provide leak-free connections along the highly pressurised distribution lines.”
Nearly 2,000 metres of Parker seamless tubes together with A-LOK® two ferrule tube fittings manufactured by Instrumentation Products Division, Europe are among the key components to have been fitted onsite by contractors, ENERAZ LLC.
Not only do Parker’s CNG components guarantee leak-free distribution, they’ve been manufactured to withstand the corrosive effect of being exposed to the elements over a sustained period of time. The components are also robust enough to withstand the vibrations generated when the tube lines are being used.
Elchin Mammadov, Head of Supply Department at Azpetrol, said: “While this may have been the first time we’ve worked with Parker, we were aware of their products on board CNG vehicles, as well as within the wider CNG refuelling infrastructure across the world, which now includes Azerbaijan’s newest bus filing station. Having Parker’s components onsite has provided us with peace of mind that the risk of gas leaks, and the associated environmental impact is being kept to an absolute minimum now, and for many years to come.”
