Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has introduced a separation and vapor containment system designed for maintenance and storage facilities with natural gas vehicles.

The company's NGV Easy Bay is a code-compliant fabric barrier system utilizing an industrial curtain that's more affordable than installing a concrete, masonry, or dry wall barrier in a maintenance garage. The product was developed through Clean Energy's facility modification group, and can be installed in several days, according to the company.

“With NGV Easy Bay, customers now have an unprecedented and cost-effective option available to adapt their facility for NGVs,” said Tim Newman, general manager of Clean Energy’s facility modification group. “As fleets across the country convert their vehicles to natural gas, a growing need has emerged for a scalable and practical solution to modify facilities.”

The NGV Easy Bay system offers benefits such as meeting local, state and federal codes; accommodating single-bay projects or large buildings; optional retracting for storage; relocatable to expand an exising NGV service area; and turn-key design and installation services by Clean Energy.

The industrial curtain is made from PVC-coated vinyl and mounted to a heavy-duty galvanized steel track. It meets ASTM standards for exposure to compressed natural gas and liquid natural gas. It includes an optional strip door that's 6- to 8-inches wide and includes a clear panel across the center section to offer visibility.

Government fleet buyers would likely procure the NGV Easy Bay through a design-build process prior to putting out a request for proposal. Clean Energy's team could assist government users in meeting compliance requirements, according to the company.

While the system is designed for any garage that works on natural gas vehicles, the company is targeting medium- and heavy-duty fleets, including the Class 8 trucking market, Newman said.
