Natural Gas for Construction, Delivery, Over-the-Road Fleets
The McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing unit of Oshkosh Corp said Tuesday that it’s expanding the availability of its Next Generation/NGen compressed natural gas fuel systems to a wider range of vehicle types, including construction, delivery, over-the-road, and other severe-duty fleets.
“We’re a pioneer in the development of CNG systems for the refuse and concrete mixer industries, and we’ve applied that expertise to engineer alternative fuel solutions for commercial vehicle fleets of all types,” Oshkosh senior VP and commercial business segment president Brad Nelson said in a release.
McNeilus has more than 5,000 NGen CNG vehicles on the road: “We offer only fully tested and certified configurations that are backed by a national service network and an expert team that can assist customers as they navigate the transition to CNG,” Nelson said.
Type IV CNG Tanks
McNeilus NGen CNG systems are available on new vehicles and retrofits through the company’s national network of regional installation centers.
The trucks are built “with both the operator and service team in mind,” McNeilus says, with a proprietary fuel management system with fewer fittings and fuel storage pods featuring lightweight, all-composite Type 4 fuel cylinders.
A Growing Range of Options
“McNeilus engineers a variety of mounting options and fuel tank capacities,” Nelson said.
“New configurations are constantly in development to respond to this quickly growing market.”
