Calgary-based Ferus, a cryogenics specialist, has deployed the first LNG tractor in Alberta, a Peterbilt 367 with Westport HD fuel system and 15-liter engine.
The truck will transport liquid nitrogen to energy industry customers in the central Alberta corridor, the firm says.
Ferus claims a single-fill range of more than 430 miles for the vehicle, and says it “intends to add additional units to its operations in the coming months with the ultimate goal of converting its entire transportation fleet to run on natural gas.”
Ferus owns and operates eight cryogenic plants in western Canada, the northeast U.S. and Rocky Mountain region, and has “a fleet of over 300 transportation and storage assets that are specifically designed for oilfield operations.”
