The 6.6 liter natural gas engine manufactured by Arizona-based U.R.E. and equipped with Omnitek’s proprietary natural gas engine management system has received Euro 4 emissions certification in Mexico, which is expected to speed up demand to power buses manufactured by Puebla-based Master Road, and encourage market growth in the region.
“Euro 4 emissions certification is a competitive advantage and not easily achieved. Mexico represents a significant market for natural gas engines, and we are particularly well-positioned now to accelerate sales through our relationship with one of the world’s leading bus manufacturers. Master Road offers a great line up of bus models – including inner city to long-range tourist buses,” said Werner Funk, president and CEO of Omnitek Engineering Corp.
Moreover, Alfonso Ferez, CEO of Master Road, commented: “Our company is committed to worldwide innovative technologies. We selected U.R.E and Omnitek’s natural gas engine technology based on the superior engine performance in the field, excellent fuel efficiency and low emissions validated by EURO 4 certification.”
Omnitek had previously announced an order for the company’s proprietary natural gas engine management technology to equip Master Road buses in Querétaro.
