Clean Energy Introduces New HD CleanCNG™ Compressor
Clean Energy Fuels Corp., manufacturer of non-lubricated Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) compressors,
has introduced a new heavy-duty non-lubricated compressor for the natural gas fueling market. The
CleanCNG™, developed by engineers at Clean Energy’s subsidiary Clean Energy Compression in
Chilliwack BC, incorporates ‘revolutionary improvements in compressor design and intelligent
engineering, resulting in ultra-low vibration and noise in a compressor that is unparalleled in scalability,
parts commonality and overall performance.’
Clean Energy says the CleanCNG™ is the result of a complete ground-up re-engineering of the CleanCNG
Standard. “We went back to the drawing board and reengineered the product with our customers in
mind,” said Andrew Littlefair. “We were able to deliver a product that can be built more efficiently, and
maintain the highest levels of compression performance available anywhere in the industry today.”
New Compressor Features:
Standardized & Modular Construction. Streamlined modular engineering improves initial
specification and cost-effectiveness, quicker delivery time and more reliable operation with
extended service intervals. Specifically designed for expansion, the CleanCNG™ is available in
150 HP – 300 HP configurations.
Ultra-Low Vibration & Noise. At 75 dBA @ 3m, low operating noise is a standard feature of the
CleanCNG™, making it suitable for even residential neighbourhood installations. Vibration
measurements exceed API 618 and recommended industry guidelines.
Scalable by Design. The control systems, assembly and enclosure of the CleanCNG™ natural gas
compressor are designed and built to be mated together in an expandable manner. Proprietary
heat management ensures that heated air is not recirculated between compressors, and
performance remains consistent regardless of the number of compressors.
TransLink, the regional transit authority to Metro Vancouver, B.C., and the first Canadian transportation
provider to achieve Platinum sustainability status from the American Transportation Association,
recently purchased six of the new CleanCNG™ units.
