American Power Group Launches with Cullen Diesel Power
American Power Group said today that it’s taking its dual fuel technology to British Columbia, having signed authorized dealer and certified installer agreements for its Turbocharged Natural Gas V5000 hardware with Cullen Diesel Power.
“There are reported to be over 50,000 registered Class 8 trucks in BC and many are heavy-haul high horsepower route profiles which only have dual fuel natural gas technology as a solution in order to retain the required power and torque performance,” APG CEO Lyle Jensen said in this morning’s announcement.
The first ten APG dual fuel systems will be installed on conversions for Clark Freightways of Coquitlam, B.C., “funded through a local natural gas conversion incentive program,” APG says. The equipment is to be shipped this month.
Cullen Diesel Power and its subsidiaries are to manage all aspects of V5000 dual fuel conversions in British Columbia, APG said.
“This pilot program is a ‘win-win’ scenario for the fleet owners and citizens of British Columbia,” he said.
Quebec Too, and Kevin Campbell
APG’s dual fuel equipment is also being evaluated in Quebec (F&F, August 22).
In other company news, dual fuel veteran Kevin Campbell has signed on as business development manager at APG. He remains based in San Diego.
