CLEVELAND, June 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chart Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:GTLS) ,a leading independent global manufacturer of highly engineered equipment used in the production, storage and end-use of hydrocarbon and industrial gases, today announced that LNG Holdings (Florida) LLC has awarded Chart's wholly-owned subsidiary, Chart Energy & Chemicals, Inc. ("Chart E&C"), a contract to provide its standard C100N LNG liquefaction plant. The plant will produce nominally 100,000 gallons per day of LNG using Chart E&C's liquefaction technology. Key equipment packages manufactured by Chart for this project include: brazed aluminium heat exchangers, air cooled heat exchangers, cold box, storage tanks, and rail and truck load-out facilities. This equipment is designed in-house, and manufactured and fabricated in Chart's facilities, a vertically integrated approach that allows Chart to deliver fast-track schedules to facilitate earlier commencement of LNG production.
"Both Chart and LNG Holdings (Florida) have a shared commitment to providing customers with a cost efficient, safe alternative to diesel and other distillate fuels. We look forward to delivering this plant and continuing our relationship with LNG Holdings (Florida) to support their LNG growth initiatives," commented Mike Durkin, President of Chart E&C.
