Blu. Introduces Lower Cost LNG Fuel Storage System
On Thursday, Blu. announced the availability of the Blu. V2 LNG Fuel Delivery System, its new line of LNG fuel tank systems for Class 8 trucks. The new system is a 160 DGE twin-tank fuel system package with tanks available in 68 DGE and 80 DGE sizes. The V2 LNG Fuel Delivery System has a list price of $17,999 (after a $7,000 fuel rebate). It features an all-in-one design, with all of the system’s key components enclosed in a one-piece metal shroud, which results in reduced installation and maintenance costs. The system is available for truck models including Peterbilt, Kenworth, Volvo, Mack and Freightliner that are equipped with natural gas engines. “Blu.’s new V2 LNG Fuel Delivery System brings us one step closer to our two key milestones: a $100 per DGE fuel system, and a quick payback for our customers,” said Blu. CEO Merritt Norton. These tank systems are offered in a variety of configurations, and are protected with a two-year, 200,000 mile warranty. The Blu. V2 system meets all industry standards, including ASME and ISO-9000. The new system is scheduled to begin shipping next month.
