The Oshkosh Corporation’s company announced an expansion of offerings of its McNeilus® Next Generation™ (NGEN) CNG systems to satisfy growing customer demands. These systems are now available on a wider range of new vehicles and retrofits – including construction, delivery, over-the-road, and other severe-duty fleets- through the company’s national network of regional installation centers.
“McNeilus has more than 5,000 NGEN CNG vehicles on the road from coast to coast. We’re a pioneer in the development of CNG systems for the refuse and concrete mixer industries, and we’ve applied that expertise to engineer alternative fuel solutions for commercial vehicle fleets of all types,” said Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation senior vice president. “We offer only fully tested and certified configurations that are backed by a national service network and an expert team that can assist customers as they navigate the transition to CNG.”
NGEN CNG-powered trucks are built with both the operator and service team in mind. The company’s exclusive fuel management system reduces the number of fittings and increases reliability, while the fuel storage pods feature lightweight DOT Type 4 tanks. McNeilus systems are installed by the company’s team of factory-trained technicians. NGEN CNG systems are backed by a two-year standard warranty, with an optional extended warranty. In addition, the company carries a comprehensive inventory of replacement parts on hand at its regional installation centers.
“To give customers more effective choices, McNeilus engineers a variety of mounting options and fuel tank capacities. New configurations are constantly in development to respond to this quickly growing market,” added Nelson.
