So far this year, 88,945 conversions have been already recorded, a temporary annual balance that promises to exceed the 106,406 vehicles converted in 2010, if the current increasing trend continues. Furthermore, the monthly average of kits installation has already exceeded 10,000 units this year, a number that was only reached during the 2001-2005 period.
Therefore, the historically accumulated CNG conversions in Argentina has surpassed 2 million vehicles in July, while in August the figure reached a total of 2,015,952 units, which represents a new milestone in the local NGV industry and reinforces the country’s main position as a power in the region and worldwide. It is important to note that the actual number of NGVs that currently operate in Argentina is 1,460,769 by July 31, 2011, as published by the Enargas.
In this context of full development and revitalization, Argentina will host the International Conference on NGV & Other Gaseous Fuels and V ExpoGNC 2011.
