American Power Group Inc. (APG) has been selected by Go Freedom Fuel Inc. to provide APG's Turbocharged Natural Gas dual-fuel systems in conjunction with a pilot program focusing on the quarries and mines of northeast Oklahoma.
Established in 2008 and based in Tulsa, Okla., Go Freedom provides compressed natural gas (CNG) up-fits and specializes in implementing CNG pilot programs for new customers.
Under this project, APG says eight of its V5000 systems will be purchased and installed on Go Freedom customer vehicles with previously approved EPA engine families, and two V5000 systems will be installed on a large CAT off-highway quarry truck and a CAT wheel loader after APG's EPA test exemption application has been approved.
Go Freedom's principals, Bridger Kucinski and Joe Barnts, state, ‘The off-highway segment of loaders and heavy-haul trucks in the quarry and open pit mining industries is in need of a viable alternative fuel solution to reduce their diesel consumption.”
“With numerous off-highway opportunities, we are happy to announce our selection and utilization of APG's dual fuel technology in our pilot program and look forward to the launch this coming month,” they add.
