GATX/Trifleet offer LNG solution

GATX Rail Europe and its tank container subsidiary Trifleet say they have developed an efficient method for transporting LNG in bulk. 

GATX Trifleet LNG bulk solution

Using an intermodal solution, GATX and Trifleet offer clients the possibility to fit up to 44 containers per 580m block train and a 34-ton LNG payload per railcar.

The train, if on- and offload infrastructure allows it, can be as long as 815m, allowing for 31 cars or 62 containers in total. 

Compared with conventional railcars, full intermodality offers a leeway that a car or container can be repaired independently with no down time alongside more efficient storage of the stackable containers.

Built according to relevant laws and regulations, the containers are designed for complete intermodality.
