Components and Fabrication Services for Onboard CNG Fuel Storage
South Carolina’s Mainstay Fuel Technologies has deepened its existing relationship with Watson Engineering for Watson to provide components and fabrication services for Mainstay’s proprietary onboard CNG fuel storage and delivery systems for heavy duty commercial vehicles.
“Watson’s manufacturing capacity, combined with our proprietary designs and high pressure expertise, will enable us to scale quickly and meet the growing market demand for CNG-powered trucks,” Mainstay CEO Rod Grandy said in a release, citing the supplier’s broad experience with engineered structural solutions and their long-standing ties to transportation OEMs.”
New Driver & Technician Training
Mainstay introduced its CNG cylinder arrays at the recent ACT Expo 2014 show in Long Beach, Calif., where it displayed both back-of-cab and side-mount tanks on a Freightliner Cascadia tractor operated by Swift Transportation (F&F, May 15).
In addition to its tighter ties with Watson, Mainstay is teaming with Cummins Westport and Hexagon Lincoln to offer CNG training to Swift technicians and drivers, Mainstay president David Benner told F&F.
