Omnitek Engineering Corp., a company focused on natural gas conversions and engines, is leasing a new facility at 1333 Keystone Way in Vista, Calif., in order to accommodate increased demand for its portfolio of natural gas vehicle technologies.
The company says the new site will more than double its current size to about 25,000 square feet. Omnitek recently received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approval for its natural gas conversion technology for the Navistar DT466E and DT530E engines.
‘In addition to conversion activities related to these two Navistar engines and the different configurations, which represents an estimated addressable market of 1.5 million potential conversions, the new facility is designed to support additional engine development programs, including sales support, training and manufacturing,’ says Werner Funk, president and CEO of Omnitek Engineering.
The official move is scheduled for March 1.
