Funk noted that Carolyn Seepersad-Bachan, the energy minister of Trinidad & Tobago, is a strong supporter of natural gas and related government tax incentive programs to encourage its utilization. He added that the energy minister expects at least 15,000 new natural gas users in 2012 and approximately 100,000 users within a five-year period.
“Our partnership with Omnitek in Trinidad and Tobago represents an exciting opportunity to generate savings for our customers and employment in the region. In addition, diesel-to-natural-gas conversion supports government mandates to go green, and offers an approximate one-year return on investment (ROI). We are proud to be the first company on the island to offer Omnitek’s conversion technology and look forward to exciting growth opportunities as the business ramps up,” said Nirmal Rampersad, chairman and chief executive officer of D. Rampersad & Company Limited.
