Galileo Cryobox-Trailer® LNG
Recovering Stranded Gas to Generate Power

Last month I took some customers to Argentina to visit Galileo Headquarters. I have been there many times and I enjoy going back because I always find something new. The elevator to the offices offers a great view of the factory floor below and this time I had a strange sensation when I was on the elevator. Down below there was something that looked like a Cryobox but I had the sensation that was bigger. As soon as I arrived I had to join a meeting and forgot about this.
Late in the morning the time came to visit the factory and finally my curiosity was satisfied.
My feeling that this equipment was a Cryobox on hormones was correct. It was Galileo’s new creative solution to produce LNG in a totally independent solution using a gathering system for stranded gas. The equipment that I saw in production was number 4 and I knew that many more were on the way. I came back with many pictures and videos but I have been waiting till now to talk about it. Today Galileo Technologies announced that they will supply 14 Cryobox-Trailer® LNG Production Stations to fuel the new power generation plant that Methax. A special purpose company also owned by Grupo Galileo, is building in Anchoris, Mendoza Province, Argentina. These portable and small-scale liquefaction units will be deployed to several orphan wells distributed throughout Malarg├╝e’s region.
By liquefying stranded gas, Galileo Technologies will supply up to 130,000 gallons of LNG per day, which will make this new power plant immune to Argentina’s natural gas shortage during winter time and the rising costs of switching from natural gas to diesel or fuel oil.
The LNG produced on-site by the Cryobox units will be transported by road through cryogenic ISO containers from the well-heads to Anchoris, where it will be re-gasified. This operation will create an LNG virtual pipeline between every well and Anchoris. The Methax natural gas-fired power plant is being installed at a key location of the grid in Mendoza and will supply 40 megawatts (MW) of power, which will alleviate the stress on transport and distribution power lines.

“Our LNG Distributed Production model provides great flexibility to build power stations in strategic locations in spite of the unavailability of natural gas pipelines,” said
Osvaldo Del Campo is President and CEO at Grupo Galileo but for me he is also the Chief Technology Officer and from his creative mind many if not all Galileo’s unique ideas have become reality like the line of compressors Nanobox, Microbox and Gigabox, the Virtual Pipeline for CNG and LNG, the Cryobox, the Microbox-Bio and now the Cryobox-Trailer® LNG . I am sure many more great products will be created to give Galileo the worldwide leadership in the processing of natural gas.
