Hybrid Fuel Systems has finalized an exclusive 15-year agreement with WITCO International for resale of its conversion systems in China and India.
HFS offers a family of conversion systems enabling light-, medium- or heavy-duty gasoline or diesel engines to displace up to 80% of conventional fuel with natural gas or propane.
HFS will provide the ECU (electronic control unit) responsible for system development, calibration and training. WITCO will arrange for in-country production of system components and will be responsible for installation, service and support in China and India.
WITCO has entered into deals with five original equipment manufactures serving the bus, truck, stationary and construction equipment markets in China to develop and market dual-fuel systems. Under the terms of the agreement, OEMs may ship their engine or vehicle to HFS in the US for system development and calibration. The first such OEM engine is scheduled for delivery to Hybrid’s facilities during August 2005.
