Omnitek Engineering Corp. concluded several evaluation projects in Turkey, including a six-month pilot program with Shell Turkey, demonstrating the reliability and performance of diesel-to-natural gas (DNG) engine conversions.  

The company’s distributor in Turkey has stepped up marketing efforts based on the conclusions of the evaluation projects, Omnitek said in its statement.

The converted heavy-duty Mercedes Axor OM457 engine, equipped with Omnitek’s DNG engine conversion technology, exhibits the same 400 hp performance utilizing LNG as with diesel fuel, Omnitek stated.

The Class 8 trucks are equipped with LNG tanks, providing a range of approximately 900 km, with LNG fuel being supplied by Shell Turkey.
