Ochre Energy: rail transport

The use of alternative fuels such as natural gas in the railway industry has grown dramatically over the last 10 years.

The fixed and consistent infrastructure nature of a railway system and the standardisation of railway locomotives allows for the rapid conversion and optimisation of fuel consumption by switching to natural gas and LNG.

Ochre Energy has a practical, safe, economical and environmentally friendly solution to reducing costs and environmental impact for railway transport by using LNG as an alternative fuel to diesel. By weight and energy LNG is as efficient as diesel, and is significantly more environmentally friendly with up to 25% less CO2 emissions and largely zero particulates, sulphurs and other harmful substances when compared to diesel.

Depending on your location and volume, LNG can be up to 25% more economical than diesel fuel.

Significant benefits for everyone involved.

A large portion of locomotives are capable of simple conversion to LNG fuel, and many new locomotives can be equipped to use LNG from delivery. Most manufacturers support the use of LNG as a reliable and alternative fuel to diesel.

LNG is an efficient form of transporting natural gas, and Ochre Energy specialises in using natural gas as a fuel. By combining the benefits of different ways of using natural gas and the energy stored in LNG and CNG, Ochre Energy modular solutions cover the storage, distribution and dispensing of:

  • Natural Gas (NG)
  • Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)
  • Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)
  • Liquefied, Compressed Natural Gas (LCNG)

Ochre Energy’s core expertise is in the efficient and safe use of each form of natural gas, and the conversion of one form to another.

Ochre Energy’s modular solutions for the use of Natural Gas, Compressed Natural Gas and Liquefied Natural Gas as a fuel makes its specification simple, installation and maintenance easy, and turnaround time for a complete system rapid. Depending on your location and volume, Ochre Energy may be able to have natural gas on your site and operational within 3 months.
