APG's Dual Fuel Technology Selected for Off-Highway Pilot Program
American Power Group has been selected by Go Freedom Fuel to provide APG’s Turbocharged Natural Gas Dual Fuel Systems in conjunction with a Go Freedom Pilot Program focusing on the quarries and mines of Northeast Oklahoma. Eight APG V5000 systems will be purchased and installed on Go Freedom customer vehicles with previously approved EPA engine families and two APG V5000 systems will be installed on a large CAT Off-Highway quarry truck and a CAT wheel loader after APG’s EPA Test Exemption Application has been approved.
“The off-highway segment of loaders and heavy haul trucks in the quarry and open pit mining industries is in need of a viable alternative fuel solution to reduce their diesel consumption,” said Go Freedom’s principals, Bridger Kucinski and Joe Barnts. “With numerous off-highway opportunities, we are happy to announce our selection and utilization of APG’s dual fuel technology in our pilot program and look forward to the launch this coming month.”
