For companies operating vocational trucks, natural gas engines are a perfect choice. Similar to diesel engines, natural gas engines can provide torque and power ratings.
Natural gas engines provide a number of advantages over diesel engines, including reduced air pollution, quieter operation, and require less volatile and inexpensive fuel.
The Class 8 truck natural gas engine market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
A contract between Omnitek Engineering Corp. and a European client calls for the company to use its proprietary technology to create a heavy-duty, 13-litre natural gas engine for Class 8 vehicles and certify it to EURO 6 emissions requirements.
The beginning of the truck demonstration programme was announced by American Power Group Corporation.
Class 8 truck drivers have the opportunity to use APG’s V6000 Dual Fuel Technology in the programme during their regular routes and operations.
When using a natural gas and diesel fuel blend, drivers will still get the same performance as from a diesel engine, and operators will save a lot on fuel.
A factory-built version of a heavy-duty truck engine that runs on inexpensive, clean-burning natural gas is the Cummins ISX12 G, which is certified as a Class 8 Heavy-Duty Truck Engine.
The ISX12 G is a true powerhouse with a high power-to-weight ratio and 700 lb-ft (949 N•m) of clutch engagement torque that allows for the usage of either compressed natural gas or liquefied natural gas.
