The compression capacity of the self-powered GoFlo CNG-80 compressor makes it cost-effective for smaller fleets of compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles, and for the initial deployment of CNG vehicles in larger fleets. The compressor’s modular design allows fleet operators to expand their CNG vehicle inventory by adding GoFlo units as demand increases, without needing costly electrical power upgrades. The GoFlo compressor is also easy to relocate in the event that a CNG fleet needs to be redeployed, and the unit can serve as a backup to dedicated CNG refueling stations. Freedom from electricity also strengthens the operating reliability of CNG fleets in the event of a natural disaster.

A limited number of GoFlo CNG-80 systems will be available for delivery the second quarter of 2018 before production ramps up the second half of the year.
