Breda based LIQAL, turnkey supplier of small-scale LNG systems, developed a skid-mounted LNG refuelling station that offers station operators best in class performance with the flexibility of a relocatable system at lower investment requirements for both fuelling equipment and onsite project preparations.

This completely pre-fabricated and transportable LNG refuelling unit, the ‘MRU’, is SIL-2 classified and complies with the latest international standards and regulations, including ISO 16924. Because LIQAL integrated intelligent features of its proprietary design like on-the-fly saturation, a vapour return economizer, its MID certified LNG fuel dispenser with patented heated and purged nozzle docking bay and 24/7 iSCADA remote monitoring system, end users do not need to do any concession on fuelling performance compared to a fixed LNG station configuration.

Any tank type including mobile ISO storage can be connected to the MRU, which also holds space for LIQAL’s proven micro liquefaction technology that ensures unlimited holding time of LNG in the storage tank and enables supply of both saturated- and cold LNG to effectively fill all available LNG truck types (including the new Volvo EURO 6). The MRU offers the opportunity to position the dispenser at a distance from the skid for 2-sided refuelling of LNG and to add a LCNG system.

After turnkey supply and commissioning of the MRU, LIQAL takes responsibility for technical operation and maintenance of the system, if requested by client.


Friday October 2nd 2015, the innovative startup company LIQAL was elected winner of the Breda Startup Award edition 2015. The jury praised the ambition, the distinctive strength and potential of the young company. LIQAL develops innovative solutions and systems for LNG stations. LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) is an emerging fuel used in shipping and road transport. The first stations are now being built. The company is said to become a serious player in the LNG industry.


The jury consisted of Breda's top entrepreneurs Joris Toonders (Yonego), Janneke Niessen (Improve Digital) and Jeroen van Glabbeek (CM Payments).
