Initial Agreement Is for Dual Fuel Installations in 14 States
Dual fuel conversion of heavy duty trucks to natural gas-diesel operation with American Power Group gear will be available from Rush Truck Centers and Momentum Fuel Technologies in 14 states, APG said yesterday.
The initial multi-year dealer-installer agreement covers installation centers in Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Virginia and Texas.
The pact “provides APG’s dual fuel customers with unparalleled sales, service and support across North America,” APG CEO Lyle Jensen said in a release.
‘No One Can Match Rush’
“With over 100 locations from coast to coast, no one can match Rush Truck Centers’ network reach and scale in supporting the heavy-duty trucking industry,” he said.
“Several Rush Truck Centers locations have already completed installation and service certification training and have completed installations for one of our largest customers in Oklahoma utilizing the Momentum CNG Fuel System,” Jensen said.
Rusty Rush Is Pleased
“We look forward to mutually growing the natural gas conversion market.” The specific emphasis is on the 13- to 15-liter heavy-haul segment “where APG’s dual fuel technology is the only effective alternative fuel solution.”
“APG’s efforts to grow the CNG market align with our focus on our Momentum CNG Fuel System and other vehicle technologies,” Rush chairman, CEO and president W.M. “Rusty” Rush says in the APG announcement.
Rush established Momentum Fuel Technologies as its outlet for compressed natural gas systems for heavy trucks in 2015 (F&F, March 6, 2015). Rusty Rush formally launched the entity at ACT Expo that year in Dallas.
The next Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, organized by Fleets & Fuels publisher GNA/Gladstein, Neandross & Associates, takes place May 1-4, 2017 at Southern California’s Long Beach Convention Center.
