The range of natural gas engines was designed to compete with the diesel engine used in heavy duty vehicles, public transport, water pumps, compressor at fuelling stations and power generators. With a million dollars invested in this project, the company is already exporting to countries in Latin America and Europe.
In addition to the broad advantages of natural gas engines (lower operating costs, contribution to the environment through reduced emissions and noise reduction), the real revolution comes from the social perspective by the strong economic impact it generates, Esigas explained through a press release.
The company stated that 9-liter ESI96TI, 280HP turbo intercooler engine will be added to its catalog by March 2011.
This technology was recently applied to two Mercedes Benz L1624 trucks and to a LK1318 from the company Gas Meriodional, which is currently working for Veralia and for a major supermarket chain, with high performance results between features and low power consumption. This makes the company’s logistics more efficient and complying with corporate social responsibility and environment international standards, which Veralia International operates with.
“For the first time in Argentina, customers are using them and they have bet on natural gas. But now the issue of urban transport is being discussed vigorously,” said Victor Derlich, president of Esigas.
