Cyroshelter makes the swap from
diesel to Liquefied Natural Gas
(LNG) a viable commercial decision
3. What is LNG
Liquefied Natural Gas is natural gas stored as a supercooled
(cryogenic) liquid. The temperature required to
condense natural gas depends on its precise composition,
but it is typically between -120 and -162°C (-184 and -260°F).
The advantage of LNG is that it offers a three fold increase
in energy density comparable to CNG (Compressed Natural
Gas), extending range and reducing refueling time.
30-50% less than Diesel.
10% less CO2 emissions, less Particulate Matter (PM) and
Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) than Diesel.
Don’t need AdBlue
Or the additional cost, limitation, complication or storage.
You can retrofit it
A traditional Diesel engine can be converted.
4. Holds more
This is achieved by an ultrathin insulation (10% to 20% benefit)
and by moving the manifold and vaporizer to the side of the
tank (5% to 10% benefit).
Choose your tank size
HGV’s and particularly tractor units have battery carriers, air
tanks, exhausts and suspension components to work around
or move to make the LNG conversion worth while, Cryoshelter
is the most flexible by far on the market to make the overall
conversion viable and at a practical price. Cryoshelter
LNG tanks can be built to specification for a wide range
of different sizes – from 270 to 750 liters (1.000 to 2.670mm).
User friendly controls are placed on the side of the tank.
New developments underway
A fast pressure build up system, enabling refilling the
truck at any filling station independent of the pressure of
LNG the filling station provides (cold versus warm LNG).

For whatever are your needs, 150 years of combined
experience within the team ensures this.
Adequate funding is always a key ingredient in the
development of new technology solutions, investment of
£5 Million has ensured this is the case.
Seven years in the making, and tens of thousands of
research and testing hours by a dedicated, world expert
team have delivered the Cryoshelter with all its multitude
of brand new innovations.
Made the product around
Our market research has told us operators want a universally
adaptable solution not just a limited choice of fixed options, a
‘hold time’ before venting of more than double the 5–day
statutory requirement for worry free and flexible operations
and it must have user-friendly controls for intuitive operation
and use…this is exactly what we now provide.
Why we are
The business was started by Dr. Matthias Rebernick as a
result of the market insight gained when he did his PhD thesis in Liquid
Hydrogen Storage for BMW passenger car division.
A new market opportunity was recognised for LNG fuel
tank storage for HGVs and an extensive R & D programme
and prototyping project commenced.
Increasing prospective customer interest meant private and
public funding was won to get the prototypes through testing
on test benches, OEM functional testing including simulation
of driving, engine load profiles A to B city travelling, typical
long haul routes, shaker/drop testing and thermal testing.
Successfully attained all necessary safety and testing
certification for the product to be sold – ECE R110
certification (valid for UK and throughout the EU).
Cryoshelter goes live in the market.
8. R110 Certification
For ‘Specific components of motor vehicles using
compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their
propulsion system’, this is the first mandatory standard world wide for LNG
tanks in trucks (this also
includes ISO 9001 standards).
SAE J2343 Standards
As recommended for use in the US have been observed
ISO 12614 and ISO 12617
All components used on the tanks are certified according
to the applicable standards.
Necessary accreditation -
Currently 4 inventions/patents families and 3 more are in
preparation, each new development is assessed in real time
by an industry expert for patent and IP protection.
Protection in place, and on-going.
