IMW Industries Ltd. has named Russian Machines Corp. (RM) as the exclusive distributor of IMW compressors, compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling solutions and parts, and sole provider of maintenance and service within the Russian Federation.
‘The Russian CNG vehicle market holds tremendous potential, and the market for quality compressor equipment is expected to rapidly increase,’ says Andrew J. Littlefair, president and CEO of IMW parent company Clean Energy Fuels Corp.
‘Russia holds the largest natural gas reserves in the world, yet only has approximately 200 natural gas fueling stations and 100,000 natural gas vehicles,’ adds RM CEO Manfred Eibeck. ‘This project will help bring state-of-the-art CNG fueling solutions and localized hi-tech production to Russia.’
RM's GAZ Group manufactures buses and light commercial vehicles powered by CNG and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), such as the PAZ-3204-4238 and KAVZ natural gas buses.
