MAT Modules are transport by road from the compression & loading station to the different consumption destinations on trucks with VST trailers specifically designed for their safe transportation.
The VST trailer used for MAT modules transport was specifically designed for this application by Galileo, base on the following principles:
• Safety and reliability in MAT modules transport (using interlocking system).
• Easy-to-use and fast loading/unloading modules on grounding platforms.
• Flexibility regarding modules` maximum capacity to be transported.
• Being able to use in any road.
MAT modules` loading/unloading procedure on VST trailers is very simple, it only takes a few minute and can be done by the truck`s driver itself.
Depending on the application, VST transport systems ® has a capacity for 2, 3 or 4 MAT modules, VST-2, VST-3 and VST-4 respectively, allowing at the same time different configurations according to the demand.
For low or moderate consumption applications, Galileo has developed MAT modules that can storage natural gas at pressures of up to 250 bar and at environment temperature.
For moderate and high consumption applications, Galileo has developed CryoMAT modules which can storage natural gas at up to 250 bar and at low temperatures of -30ºC. These modules can storage and transport 30% more gas per module, thus reducing the initial inversion and operative costs.
