Chart, Ground Force Worldwide deliver first LNG/diesel dual fueling vehicle

The truck is based on a Kenworth T800 and Chart’s Orca unit, which celebrates its 21st birthday this year. Orca originally was developed as an efficient way of delivering packaged atmospheric gases.

The two companies hadn’t worked together previously and this was GFW’s first excursion into LNG and cryogenics. The partners have been able to gather information from the field with the quarry reportedly impressed with the unit’s build quality and an ability to fuel 50% faster than with its previous system.
