American Power Group Corporation will be working with Marine Fuel Conversions to evaluate potential applications and opportunities for APG’s dual fuel solution, specifically in marine applications including on-board prime and ancillary power as well as port based stationary power applications.
MFC, which is based in Glasgow, Scotland, will be responsible for funding and coordinating all feasibility and beta testing activities necessary to determine how APG’s innovative Turbocharged Natural Gas® dual fuel system can be commercialized in Europe for marine applications.
The feasibility/beta testing period is anticipated to run between nine to fifteen months. MFC will be utilizing Scotland’s University of Strathclyde’s Department of Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering Group to lead the technical feasibility/commercialization effort and will be working with Scottish Enterprise’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine Industry Group regarding potential funding sources.
Upon successful completion of the feasibility study and beta tests, MFC has been granted a multi-year license to sell and install APG’s Turbocharged Natural Gas® dual fuel solution in select marine applications and in select European countries.
