Sainsbury’s Is But One Taker of ‘Genesis Edge’ Conversion Kits
The UK’s Clean Air Power has publicized a spate of orders for its Genesis Edge brand dual fuel engine conversion kits, which allow diesel engines to run primarily on natural gas – up to 90%, the company says – culminating in an order for ten units for the Sainsbury’s supermarket chain.
“This order will take their total to 24 trucks which will operate using biomethane gas which has been produced from landfill waste,” CAP said.
Other recent CAP announcements include
- an order worth £400,000 (approximately $650,000 U.S.) for 14 units for a major supermarket chain, which previously tested five trucks for three years;
- an order for a major logistics company for 27 retrofit CAP units worth approximately £700,000;
- a contract with a European operator that been testing the CAP system since 2009, to develop a Genesis Edge variant that could lead to 50 orders and business worth £800,000 all told; and
- word that Navistar International has paid CAP $1.3 million on the Concept Readiness phase a “Maxxforce 13 Dual-Fuel” engine.
CAP has publicized work with Volvo expected to lead to adoption of a dual fuel variant.
The UK firm says that there are more than 160 of its conversions in service in Australia, on Daimler, Kenworth, Mack, and Navistar International trucks.
