“We have the dual fuel system, a mixture of technologies that have been applied worldwide and, with the assistance of an engineer, the application is achieved through a microprocessor that controls the power curves and heat engine, and also regulates minimum diesel consumption allowing all power replacement and movement to be done with natural gas,” said the businessman.
He also commented that through such conversions, the tractor-trailers offer a great advantage since the vehicle does not lose power, but it keeps it and may even increase it. The cost of the equipment can range from 15 to 18 million pesos (local currency), but the monthly savings can reach 4 million pesos, which means a payback period of less than five months.
After the tour concluded, a snack was served to all guests, who also had the opportunity to see a musical show before returning to Las Américas Resort & Centro de Convenciones.
It is worth mentioning that this complementary activity of NGV2013 Colombia is very interesting, since it gives participants the possibility of obtaining first-hand information on-site where the processes occur.
