For LNG applications, APG’s Dual Fuel System converts existing diesel engines to operate on a blend of diesel and natural gas to provide lower operating costs to the operator. The system displaces up to 50 percent of the normal diesel fuel consumption with LNG that is converted to compressed natural gas for vehicular operation.
“We are extremely pleased that Wesfarmers LNG is prepared to test our non-invasive dual fuel system in the challenging Western Australian environment to be evaluated against other dual fuel and dedicated alternative fuel systems presently available,” explained Green Man’s president and CEO Lyle Jensen. The executive also stated that the testing is scheduled to last 90 days.
In turn, Kleenheat Gas general manager Graham Smith stated: “Wesfarmers LNG is leading the development of LNG as a viable long term alternative fuel to diesel in the Australian heavy-duty vehicle, industrial, and remote power generation markets. We are proud to be at the forefront of how LNG is changing the direction of road transport in Australia.”
