American Power Group Corporation announces its subsidiary American Power Group, Inc. has been notified by one of its WheelTime Dealers, Clarke Power Services, of a follow-on order for fourteen additional APG Dual Fuel Conversion systems from an existing early adopter customer who had evaluated an initial unit for approximately 90 days.
The conversion order, for one of the nation’s leading toll processors of rolled steel, aluminum, and copper, will be filled from Clarke Power’s existing dealer inventory of APG dual fuel conversion kits, the company says.
“We are pleased to see several of our early-adopter customers complete their evaluations and take the next step and order additional systems,” Chad Marti, field services manager at Clarke Power Services. “We are convinced the power performance and economic fuel savings of the APG dual fuel system will continue to attract new customers and motivate others to move into production as well. Introducing a new natural gas fueling technology to the U.S. trucking industry will not happen overnight, but we are encouraged by the interest level and commitment being shown by a growing number of fleets.”
“Clarke Power’s customer’s early-adopter evaluation process is very typical of many prospective customers considering using natural gas in their fleets for the first time,” says Lyle Jensen, American Power Group CEO. “We are pleased that our APG turbocharged dual fuel natural gas system has once again been selected as best in class for a heavy-duty trucking application. We expect many more early-adopter fleets will follow suit and begin to place production orders in the near future.”
