Because CNG is lighter than air, it is inherently safer to transport and to have on-site than oil, propane, or LNG and therefore popular with first responders. They like the fact that, even if there were an accidental release, it would dissipate above them and not burn them or require remediation of the surrounding soil or water ways.
That said, CNG is a volatile fuel source. NG Advantage has a Safety Officer that trains the staff at each customer plant. He also trains first responders and city and town officials in the properties of CNG and in how to handle NG Advantage’s equipment.
Additionally, NG Advantage’s proprietary SCADA system is the best in the industry. It produces real-time and historical data that can be seen on a smart phone or tablet by the powerhouse maintenance team or management at any time.
Both a real-time data stream and video for every site are monitored automatically by NG Advantage’s proprietary software systems and by NG Advantage’s 24x7 Operations Team to ensure uninterrupted supply, timely delivery, and safety. Local first responders are also given a software tool that gives them access on their smart phones to the cameras in case of emergency.
