Chart and Ground Force Worldwide to Deliver First LNG/Diesel Refueling Vehicle
Chart and Ground Force Worldwide (GFW) announced the launch of the first dual LNG/diesel refueling truck, based on a Kenworth T800 and Chart’s Orca unit, that was designed and built for a large rock quarry customer in Florida. The customer is using the vehicle as a fueling solution for their recently converted fleet of haul trucks, which were retro-fitted with LNG conversions.
The two companies hadn’t worked together previously, and this was GFW’s first excursion into LNG and cryogenics. The partners have been able to gather information from the field with the quarry reportedly impressed with the unit’s build quality and an ability to fuel 50 percent faster than with its previous system.
