American Power Group Inc. (APG) says it has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approval of the company's recent clean alternative fuel vehicle and engine conversion submissions for a range of additional intermediate useful life (IUL) engines.
The EPA approvals are for the following IUL engines:
– Detroit Diesel DD13 12.8L (2012 to 2008)
– MBE 4000 12.8L (2009 to 2007)
– Detroit Diesel Series 60 12.7L (2006 to 2005)
– Detroit Diesel Series 60 14.0L (2009 to 2005)
– Detroit Diesel DD15 14.8L (2009 to 2008)
The submission utilized APG's V5000 Dual Fuel Turbocharged Natural Gas technology, which APG says is required to meet specific design, componentry and emission compliance criteria per the EPA Final Rule 40CFR Parts 85 and 86.
APG says eight Detroit Diesel DD13 engine families became its third IUL approval covering selective catalyst reduction (SCR) engine technology, which meets or exceeds the current 2010 EPA OEM-certified engine emission standards.
The company says it now has 473 outside useful life (OUL) and IUL approvals covering six of the top OEM engine platforms, including 17 IUL approvals for 2012-2010 OEM engine families (Detroit Diesel DD15/DD13 and Mack/Volvo D13) with SCR engine technology.
APG received its first IUL approvals in December 2014.
