BRIDGEWATER, N.J., April 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Linde LLC recently collaborated with a leading energy company to help a Pennsylvania utility maintain sufficient gas line pressure in its local network. Working with Prometheus Energy Group, one of the largest suppliers of liquefied natural gas (LNG) solutions to the industrial and utility sector in North America, Linde supported Prometheus' operations by supplying two large LNG storage trailers and two special vaporizers that inject natural gas at the correct temperature, pressure, and flow rate into the utility's pipeline system.
"Because this was a short-term project, our mobile LNG equipment and our unique customer service capabilities were critical to ensuring that the utility's local customers had sufficient natural gas service during the cold winter months," said Leslie Waller, Head of Chemistry, Energy and Environmental for Linde Americas. "We are experiencing similar demand from other utilities around the country during extreme temperature swings in both the summer and winter seasons."
Prometheus Energy had two other installations with their client and requested Linde as a subcontractor for this third project. Linde had the appropriate equipment available and extensive experience in the utility industry to provide the gas line pressure required for the utility's 700,000 customers.
"Prometheus has been very active supporting utilities and industrial customers throughout the U.S.," said Jim Aivalis, CEO of Prometheus Energy. "We were called upon as a preferred supplier to complete a project with limited planning time. We turned to Linde as a subcontractor for available equipment and support based on their experience, capabilities and equipment solutions. Our customer was very satisfied with the level of service and the commitment to safety demonstrated by Prometheus with our collaboration with the Linde Group."
In addition to permanent storage and vaporization stations, Linde owns an expanding fleet of temporary, mobile equipment which has been designed, engineered, constructed, and operated to meet the needs of a broad cross-section of industries. Linde engineers are constantly improving this equipment based on decades of field experience and feedback from customers. With varying amounts of storage and natural gas delivery capacities, the Linde LNG fleet is flexible enough to be used in a variety of applications, particularly the power generation, pipeline, oil and gas, industrial, and asphalt sectors.
"When companies work with the Linde LNG team, they receive world-class support in the form of project management, specialized technicians and operators, and safety training," said Evelyn Fairman, Application Sales Engineer and LNG Program Lead. "Our LNG service technicians are highly trained in all applications of natural gas and LNG. We install, start, operate, shut down, and move the LNG equipment safely while ensuring process stability."
