The trucks, expected to be fully operational in October 2013, will in aggregate travel over 100,000 miles per month, which will provide invaluable information and data on performance and reliability. UPS has been operating nine Caterpillar C12 tractor units with CAP’s Dual-Fuel system since 2002. They have each completed over 1 million miles.
“We are extremely pleased to be working with UPS on the testing and optimization of a Genesis EDGE Dual-Fuel™ product for the important US market. UPS is one of the most innovative leaders in the development of natural gas vehicles in the United States. In April 2013, UPS announced that it will buy 700 LNG trucks and construct four refueling stations by the end of 2014,” said John Pettitt, Chief Executive of Clean Air Power.
