GFS Corp wins LNG truck conversion deal

Florida-based GFS Corp on Tuesday said it has received an order to convert an entire fleet of Caterpillar 785 trucks to run on liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The trucks are planned to be operating on LNG by late January 2017  at an undisclosed mine in the United States, GFS Corp said in its statement.

The new systems join GFS Corp’s product lineup that include NG+D systems for the Caterpillar 777 and 793 as well as the Komatsu 830 and 930 haul trucks.

Trucks with these systems have accumulated over 400,000 hours of runtime to date, in mine service, substituting lower cost, cleaner burning LNG for a substantial portion of the diesel fuel that the truck would have normally used, according to the statement.

The EVO-WL 9920 represents the company’s first LNG solution for wheel loaders, GFS Corp said, adding that the first of these will be operational in early 2017.

Systems for other wheel loaders are scheduled to be released in the second half of 2017.
