American Power Group Corporation announced that its largest customer, Iowa-based WW Transport, Inc., is now operating over 100 APG Turbocharged Natural Gas® Dual Fuel outfitted heavy-haul Class 8 trucks within their fleet. WW Transport is expert in specialized freight. In addition to normal hauling of flatbed and heavy-haul type business, it specializes in its award winning food grade bulk hauling, both liquid and dry bulk, as well as their refrigeration division.
Kyle Weuve, WW Transport’s Chief Financial Officer, stated: “We are strong believers in the long term economic and environmental benefits of using natural gas as an alternative fuel as evidenced by the significant investments we have made thus far in natural gas fueling infrastructure and NGVs. During the past three years, APG’s dual fuel conversion technology has become an important and growing piece of this commitment due to its ease of use, reliability and retention of diesel-like power and torque which is critical for our heavy-haul routes. The reduction in harmful diesel-related emissions is an added bonus towards achieving our corporate and customer driven sustainability goals.”
Lyle Jensen, CEO of American Power Group, commented: “WW Transport has become a natural gas sustainability leader utilizing natural gas fueling stations, dedicated natural gas trucks and APG’s natural gas dual fuel conversion technology to meet today’s logistics needs with a cleaner alternative fuel solution. There are not many fleets in the United States that have more than 100 heavy-duty trucks running on some form of natural gas so APG is pleased that our field performance has achieved this customer satisfaction milestone. APG has carved out a specialized niche where our EPA and CARB qualified dual fuel systems are the only effective natural gas solution in the 13L to 15L Class 8 truck performance range for power and torque and diesel-related emission reductions. Fleets with heavy-haul routes and tanker fleets no longer have to compromise driver satisfaction with under-powered natural gas systems.”
