American Power Group Inc. (APG) has shipped a new order for its Turbocharged Natural Gas dual-fuel systems to the Dominican Republic. Caribbean Power Group, APG's authorized dealer and certified installer in the country, placed the over $200,000 order to convert 38 additional heavy-duty trucks to operate on the dual-fuel system.
Although further details were not disclosed for proprietary reasons, APG says the end customer is a ‘global leader in the building materials industry with a presence in more than 50 countries and a strong commitment to integrating sustainability initiatives into their global business strategy.’
Milton Zarzuela, president of Caribbean Power Group, explains, ‘We have been working with this customer on the pilot order for a long time to validate field performance, economic payback and the emission-reduction benefits of APG's dual-fuel solution and are pleased that we have finalized all elements necessary to begin the conversion process.’
‘Based on data obtained during the initial field evaluation phase, our customer estimates a potential aggregate annual net fuel savings of over $600,000 per year from the conversion of a total of 40 units,’ adds Zarzuela. ‘Our customer has verbally indicated they are still interested in converting more of their local 200-truck fleet to APG's dual-fuel system over the coming year.’
