Omnitek Engineering Corp. and diesel engine remanufacturer Reviva have partnered to produce a ‘drop-in’ natural gas engine for the Navistar DT 466E and DT 530E heavy-duty truck engines.
‘This strategic alliance offers trucking fleets the option of ordering a completely remanufactured and ready-to-drop-in engine that incorporates Omnitek's EPA-approved diesel-to-natural gas conversion kit,’ explains Werner Funk, president and CEO of Omnitek. ‘The assembly-line remanufacturing process offers the benefits of capacity, consistency and quality, and a shortened conversion process.’
Omnitek's conversion-center partners in the U.S. and Canada will work with fleets on the new ‘drop-in’ option. The company expects to begin shipments of these remanufactured engines in the current quarter.
Reviva, which was founded in 1944, is one of the largest independent diesel engine remanufacturers in North America, serving the on-road, off-road and refrigeration markets.
