Virtual Pipeline System

Six Fundamental Advantages

Mother Station: A MICROBOX, connected to an existing gas pipeline, compresses the gas withinthe MAT transport modules. These are placed on platforms called PA-C, especially designed for such purpose. They allow for safe and efficient module refilling and exchange with the Transport System.

Loading and Unloading: Upon arrival, the transport trailer exchanges the empty MATs brought from the consumption point for other filled MATs. This exchange is made with very easy-to-operate and especially designed ST machines placed on the trailer. They can be operated by the truck driver. These ST machines minimize module loading and unloading times with the highest safety standards.

Transport: The vehicle transports the MAT modules along the road at a speed typical of freight transport, with no need for additional safety systems. MAT modules are linked to the trailer by means of an anchoring system which ensures a safe transport.

Household Consumption: Upon arrival at consumption points, the MAT modules are unloaded on especially designed platforms called PA-D. These platforms have a simple and safe connection system which minimizes both loading and unloading times. After going through a regulating plant, the MATs are finally connected to the household supply network

Industrial Consumption: In this application and according to the type of industry to supply, platforms are connected to regulating plants. These are fitted with an exclusive catalytic heater system and have a maximum capacity of 10,000 m3/hour.

CNG Daughter Stations: MAT modules are connected to the dispenser through a discharge BOOSTER and are managed by the Rotate Cascade system, which maximizes the MAT CNG discharge and minimizes vehicle refueling times. The Galileo-patented Rotate Cascade system allows for an efficient module use, minimizing both investment and operating costs.

System Advantages

  • Great "flexibility" that maximizes the transported gas usage. No need to wait until all the gas at the consumption point is petered out to change modules (situation typical of the classic tube trailer). With the Virtual Pipeline system, only the empty MAT modules are replaced, thus minimizing transport waiting times.
  • Thanks to the Rotary Cascade system, 93% of the transported gas is used in CNG Daughter Station and all the customers refill at 200 bar. In traditional systems, no more than 54% of the transported gas is used, and a large percentage of vehicles ends up with their refill under 200 bar..

  • As the System includes all the necessary elements, from compression to decompression, Galileo ensures a smooth operation of all the components. Likewise, the customer operates with a single accountable person in order to avoid responsibility overlap

Virtual Pipeline includes the following safety systems.

  • Impact-resistant modules: through a finite element analysis, the modules have been designed in order to resist impacts due to improper operation.
  • Fire and explosion-proof system: theb MATs modules include an exclusive explosion-proof system which ensures road gas transport.
  • Linking system joined to module chassis: it ensures that the modules are properly fastened to the trailer during transport.
  • Telecontrol System: Virtual Pipeline includes a SCADA system in order to monitor its proper operation. This helps to know the online status of all the safety variables and systems which make up the system.
