‘Fuel Cost Savings of More than 30% and the Shortest ROI’
South Carolina’s EcoDual and New York-based Clean Vehicle Solutions have signed a distribution and servicing agreement for CVS to deliver and support the EcoDual line of dual fuel diesel-natural gas engine conversions.
EcoDual claims “the highest natural-gas-for-diesel substitution rate,” and says “fleet operators can achieve both overall fuel cost savings of more than 30% and the shortest return on investment.
“The cost of the dual fuel system is often recovered in operational savings within one year without any government incentives,” the company says.
“CVS gives us a strong delivery, service and support partner in the northeastern U.S. with well recognized expertise in converting vehicles to run on natural gas,” EcoDual president and CEO Scott Myers said in a release.
“The New York, New Jersey, Connecticut tri-state area is a huge market for EcoDual systems and CVS’s excellent reputation in CNG vehicles is important for our success.”
CVS Branches to Heavy Duty
“We have installed thousands of natural gas systems in lighter vehicles and have been seeking the right solution for heavy trucks,” said CVS CEO Dean Sloane. “The EcoDual system delivers critical fuel cost savings for truck fleets and provides an excellent opportunity to continue the expansion of our market leading solutions.”
CVS offers “full service, end-to-end CNG solutions supporting fleet operations with extensive production, installation, maintenance and training services coupled with fueling infrastructure development, financing, and maintenance.
“This end-to-end solution is designed to support the development and effective operation of alternative fueled fleets,” states the EcoDual announcement.
CVS recently opened a new 75,000-square-foot facility in West Nyack, N.Y. for conversion of vehicles from passenger cars up to Class 8 trucks to natural gas.
