American Power Group reported U.S. EPA approval 55 Caterpillar and Detroit Diesel OUL engine families for conversion to natural gas-diesel dual fuel operation.

OUL stands for Outside Useful Life. Iowa-based APG (also known as GreenMan, for its GreenMan Technologies parent) promotes its V5000 Dual Fuel Turbocharged Natural Gas system for upfitting older engines to run substantially on natural gas via air intake injection.

The market opener is EPA’s decision last year to grant “approvals” for such engines as compared with the certifications required for new ones.

Wisconsin natural gas trucking pioneer Paper Transport, Inc. runs a 2008 APG-converted Detroit Diesel DD15 engine in this 2009 Freightliner Cascadia tractor. Note rail-mounted CNG tank (unshrouded for photo).

“Today’s announcement is a testament to our APG team and the extraordinary effort they have shown over the past several quarters as we worked to complete last week’s $8.2 million capital raise,” APG CEO Lyle Jensen said on May 7.

“These approvals include some of the most popular higher mileage CAT and Detroit Diesel engine models on the road today and represent 10 of the top 40 OUL engine families we had identified to pursue in the coming months.

“We can now begin working with our certified installers, who have cumulatively identified a significant number of customers.”

In addition to trucks, the company is working with LNG-supplier Linde to retrofit large drill rig engines for natural gas.
