Safety Training and Design, Permitting, and Operational Guidance for Garage Facilities Maintaining and Parking Natural Gas, Propane, and Hydrogen Vehicles
Marathon Technical Services USA Inc. (Marathon) and its partners aim to enhance the safety of gaseous fuel vehicle garages by developing easily understood facility design resources. The resources are aimed at facility owners, consulting engineers, fire marshals and code officials. The development of visual manuals, online and in-person instruction, and case studies will provide a more interactive approach to interpreting codes for garage facility upgrades and building modifications. The guidance is focused on the facilities that store and maintain compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), liquified petroleum gas (propane or LPG), and compressed hydrogen.
Marathon and Clean Fuels Ohio developed a training manual and presentation materials for each of the four fuels that explains concepts and applications in an easy to understand format. The manuals and presentation materials were used at numerous in-person trainings and facility tours that Marathon hosted across the country in 2018 and 2019. These materials along with narrated, modular training webinars are now hosted on the project website so that users can continue to use and benefit from these resources.
