Gas and engineering firm BOC has reached a milestone in its quest to create a Hume Highway network with the opening of an LNG refuelling station at Tarcutta.

Its first public refuelling facility on the east coast of the country, it joins LNG refuelling stations already operating at Preston in Victoria and in development at Wetherill Park, NSW, with plans for others to open along the Hume Highway in the near future.

The company says Linfox will be amongst the first to benefit from its patented refuelling technology, having ordered two purpose-built LNG vehicles to service their Sydney to Melbourne work with BOC.

"Linfox and BOC share the same commitment to driving innovative solutions which make a difference,’’ Linfox President Resources and Industrial Ian Kent says.

"We are very excited to be partnering with BOC in embracing this new fuel technology for our Hume Highway services.

"Like BOC, Linfox sees LNG as an important alternative to diesel from a commercial, economic and environmental perspective.’’

BOC General Manger for LNG Alex Dronoff says the Tarcutta facility was the "latest example of company’s cutting-edge LNG innovation".

"Designed and built in Australia by BOC, the award winning refeuller replicates and improves the bowser experience people are used to with traditional fuel," Dronoff adds.

"Tarcutta customers will be able refuel the same quantity in half the time when compared with diesel."

Dronoff says the system’s efficiency has increased significantly, keeping the LNG cold by utilising patented liquid nitrogen technology.
