American Power Group Corporation (APG) announced they have signed a collaborative Vehicular Dealer/Installer Agreement with Nat G CNG Solutions, LLC (Nat G) to market and service APG’s next generation of low carbon V6000 Dual Fuel diesel engine conversion solutions for existing heavy-duty Class 8 trucks.
Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Nat G is a provider of alternative fuel systems serving public and private fleet operators with a wide range of vehicle sizes ranging from light-duty carpool vehicles to long-haul Class 8 tractors.
Their Houston CNG/biomethane and LPG Conversion Center is fully licensed by the Texas Railroad Commission and is a Ford Factory Qualified Vehicle Modifier (Ford QVM Installer) with CNG/biomethane and LPG Certified Technicians.
Regarding CNG tanks, Nat G is a Hexagon Agility Approved Service Provider (ASP) and a CSA Group qualified natural gas cylinder inspector. Nat G also has experience building and servicing natural gas refueling facilities. Their primary service coverage area includes Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Louisiana.
“We look forward to working with Nat G to advance adoption of APG’s V6000Dual Fuel Technology in a key alternative fuel region of the United States. Texas is an anchor state in the region with 25 different Interstate Highway routes and ranked as the #1 state in the U.S. with over 3,500 interstate miles to support Class 8 transportation. The heavy-haul industry requirements in the region are a perfect match for APG’s V6000 Dual Fuel Solutions that can displace 50%-60% of diesel with lower cost and cleaner burning natural gas fuel without any loss of power or torque,” said Chuck Coppa, APG’s CEO/CFO.
“The four-state coverage area listed for Nat G also has some of the most favorable diesel to natural gas price spreads which generate the highest net alternative fuel savings in the U.S.,” he added.
“APG’s dual fuel systems are a practical solution available TODAY that reduce emissions from existing diesel-powered fleets and lowers their carbon footprint dramatically when using renewable natural gas,” commented Nat G CEO Dennis Foose.
