AMERICAN POWER GROUP GLIDER KIT SELECTED AS TOP PRODUCT OF 2014
American Power Group (APG) has been recognized by Heavy Duty Trucking Magazine (HDT) for its Dual Fuel Natural Gas Glider kit, which has been named one of the Top 20 Products for 2014. APG’s V5000 Turbocharged Natural Gas Dual Fuel System works with rebuilt pre-EGR Detroit Series 60 engines in new Freightliner and Western Star glider kit models. The technology is a non-invasive patented system that typically displaces 50 to 65 percent of diesel with CNG or LNG. A committee of editors from HDT selected products that appeared in HDT’s editorial pages or in editorial coverage on Truckinginfo.com during their 2013 qualifying period based on: (1) its level of innovation; (2) whether it addresses significant industry issues; and (3) its potential to improve a trucking operation’s bottom line. Then additional input was received from a panel of experienced fleet executives and maintenance managers. The Top 20 Products are featured in HDT’s February issue available at: http://goo.gl/vl25QX. Included in the list are other natural gas products from Westport Innovations, Chart Industries and Agility. A recognition plaque will be presented to APG at the 2014 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition held at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee, March 10 to 12.
