Gaseous Fuel Systems Corp. (GFS) has debuted its EVO-MT 7930 liquefied natural gas (LNG) conversion system for Caterpillar 793 open-mine hauling trucks. The platform was designed and is manufactured by GFS in Florida.
‘Our EVO-MT system is able to provide our customers with a 'here and now' solution that can be quickly and seamlessly adopted into their operations, making an immediate impact to the bottom line,’ says Jason Grees, president of GFS.
In the event of a fault condition or low LNG fuel level, the system seamlessly switches the truck to 100% diesel operation, regardless of operating mode. The truck's hauling capacity is not compromised by the LNG system's installation, GFS notes, and the engine power and torque output is maintained at OEM specifications.
The company is currently taking orders for the EVO-MT 7930 system and will be releasing additional solutions for Caterpillar and Komatsu models later this year.
