Texan Named Dealer and Authorized Installer for Growing Engine Line
Southern California’s Omnitek Engineering has named Houston-based Nat G CNG Solutions as a dealer and authorized installer of its diesel-to-natural gas conversion systems.
“The addition of Nat Gas Solutions to our network of domestic conversion centers provides a solid platform for growth in a region with significant supplies of natural gas and pent-up demand from heavy-duty truck fleet operators,” Omnitek president and CEO Werner Funk said in a release.
Omnitek (OTCBB:OMTK) says it’s “accelerating its conversion center partnerships throughout the United States since receiving EPA approval last month for its diesel-to-natural gas conversion technology for the widely operated line of heavy-duty Navistar DT466E and DT530E engines” (F&F, January 24).
“The domestic expansion complements the company’s presence in international markets since 2001 – represented by dealers, installers and partnerships throughout Asia, Latin and South America and Europe.”
More Regulatory Approvals Expected
Omnitek says it expects to obtain EPA approval for other diesel engine models “to address the anticipated increasing demand from trucking fleets that operate with other diesel engine models.”
“Our fleet customers are extremely interested in diesel engine conversions and the economic benefits of utilizing natural gas. We look forward to working with Omnitek and accelerating the adoption of natural gas in the region,” Nat G CNG Solutions co-CEO Balu Balagopal said in the Omnitek announcement.
Omnitek’s conversion technology offers a projected return on investment of less than two years, Fund said; according to the company “a significant advantage compared with a projected return on investment of five-to-seven years for a new natural gas truck purchase.”
