Clean Air Power, the UK-based developer and manufacturer of Dual-Fuel (natural gas and diesel) engine management systems for heavy duty vehicles, has received an order for 19 Genesis-EDGE, Dual-Fuel trucks from a major distribution company in the UK. The order has a value to Clean Air Power of around £0.5 million (US$0.83 million).
The trucks will be fitted with Clean Air Power’s Genesis-EDGE system at its facility in Leyland, UK and delivered during Q1 2014. The customer already operates more than 100 Clean Air Power Dual-Fuel vehicles in its UK distribution fleet.
Separately, CAP received an order worth around $0.5 million for natural gas injectors from its German distributor.
The injectors will be used in the manufacture of a 7-liter medium-duty spark-ignited natural gas engine by a global truck manufacturer. The engine, which is suitable for use in vehicles such as buses and refuse vehicles, is to be aimed at the growing Russian market where the government has set out ambitious plans to encourage the use of natural gas as a road fuel throughout the country.
Clean Air Power is also developing the Russian market and plans to launch its Genesis-EDGE Dual-Fuel product there later this year. The Genesis-EDGE product is particularly targeted at heavy-duty diesel trucks, as opposed to the above spark-ignited medium-duty offering.
