Omnitek Engineering has been selected for a pilot program in Little Rock, Ark. intended to demonstrate the economic benefits and environmental effectiveness of the company’s EPA-approved diesel-to natural gas engine conversion technology for the Navistar DT466E heavy-duty truck engines utilized by the city’s municipal truck fleet.
Omnitek Engineering says it will work with Glover’s Truck Center to complete the conversions, and anticipates delivering favorable results during the evaluation period.
“Arkansas is committed to supporting technologies that reduce environmental pollution and utilize inexpensive natural gas, and we are gratified to have been selected. This project is an opportunity to further showcase and demonstrate the economical and effective utilization of the company’s diesel-to natural gas engine conversion technology. We look forward to working with the city of Little Rock and associated state officials,” says Werner Funk, president and CEO at Omnitek Engineering.
“Our partnership with Glover’s Truck, a highly respected full-service truck center and newest Omnitek Authorized Installation Center (AIC), played a critical role in our selection. Glover’s will provide numerous additional opportunities to leverage the organization’s broad truck engine experience as more fleets transition to natural gas. We appreciate the responsiveness and commitment of the Glover’s Truck team and look forward to a successful program,” Funk says.
