“It was recently reported that the Dominican government issued 65 new licenses to companies which market natural gas and related natural gas activities underscoring their commitment to implementing the needed infrastructure to make natural gas vehicles a reality. We are also seeing notable interest from the private sector for both power generation and NGV applications,” said Lyle Jensen, GreenMan’s president and CEO.
Besides, Dominican President Leonel Fernandez had previously launched the “Program to Implement the Use of Compressed Natural Gas in Vehicles”, a plan to switch at least 20,000 public transport vehicles to CNG. The objective is to establish four major corridors with natural gas fuelling stations from Santo Domingo to different regions of the country.
It is worth recalling that APG’s dual fuel system converts diesel engines to function more efficiently and at a lower operating cost (average net fuel cost savings of 20%-35%) by seamlessly displacing up to 40%-60% of the normal diesel fuel consumption with either CNG, LNG, or biomethane.
