Through continued investment, development and transfer of best practice, products made in each of our current three Chinese facilities are consistent in quality and reliability with equivalent items manufactured in any of our US and European operations.

Each of our Chinese facilities holds all applicable international accreditations as well as many local quality, safety and environmental licenses and certifications.

Details of our China operations with their principal products:

Chart Cryogenic Engineering Systems(Changzhou) Co., Ltd. (CCESC) - cryogenic tanks, ISO containers, LNG vehicle fueling stations, marine fuel tanks and systems, vacuum insulated pipe, liquid cylinders (packaged gases), vaporizers.

Chart Cryogenic Distribution Equipment (Changzhou) Co., Ltd. (CCDEC) - Orca™ MicroBulk delivery systems, cryogenic trailers.

Nanjing Xinye Electric Engineering Co., Ltd. (XY) - electrical equipment and control systems.


Leading the Energy Transition

Our Chart China team recently celebrated completion of liquid hydrogen storage tanks engineered and built in Changzhou. With world class facilities across three continents and a wealth of cryogenic and compression expertise, Chart is uniquely positioned to accelerate the energy transition through the adoption of hydrogen.

Key player in China's sustainable, low carbon energy future

Small-scale LNG models and development of associated infrastructure across the value chain - liquefaction, distribution and storage - are bringing primary power to off-grid locations, displacing oil and diesel for high horsepower applications across many industries and providing an alternative transportation fuel for trucks, buses and ships.

Multi-functional Storage and Regasification Stations - complete systems that store and regasify LNG providing natural gas at the point of use. Can be used to bring natural gas power to off-grid locations or to supplement grid capacity for peak loading or emergency back-up.

Vehicle Fueling Stations - from portable skid mounted stations for small vehicle fleets all the way to public stations with multiple LNG dispensers and LCNG modules to serve all natural gas vehicles.

Permanent LNG Fueling Station

In 2013 Chart acquired Nanjing Xinye Electric Engineering Co., Ltd., a specialist in electrical control systems and fuel dispensing. The combination of Chart and Nanjing Xinye technologies enables CCESC to provide complete LNG fueling solutions incorporating the fueling station, dispensers and electronic control and metering systems.

LNG Dispensers for Vehicle and Marine Fueling - complete fueling dispensers incorporating the most accurate electrical control and metering systems developed by Nanjing Xinye in collaboration with Chart's German subsidiary Flow Instruments GmbH.

LNG dispensers for vehicle fueling and bunkering

Chart holds numerous patents for fuel dispenser technology developed in China and in 2015 received approval to CE mark (European conformity) LNG dispensers made in China.
