APG Production Order for 38 Conversion Systems in Dominican Republic
American Power Group (APG) announced it has received an order from Caribbean Power Group S.R.L, its authorized dealer and certified installer in the Dominican Republic, to convert 38 heavy duty trucks to operate on APG’s Turbocharged Natural Gas dual fuel system. Deliveries are scheduled for the June to July 2014 timeframe. The end customer is a leader in the building materials industry with a presence in Dominican Republic and countries around the world. Milton Zarzuela, President of Caribbean Power Group, commented, “We have been working with this customer on the pilot order for over eighteen months to validate field performance, economic payback, and the emission reduction benefits of APG’s dual fuel solution,” said Milton Zarzuela, President of Carribbean Power Group. “Based on data obtained during this initial field evaluation phase, our customer estimates a potential aggregate annual net fuel savings of over $1 million per year from the conversion of these 38 units.” The customer has verbally indicated they will look to convert more of their local 200 truck fleet to APG’s dual fuel system over the coming year.
