Sunny DeWakar, CEO of NGV Motori USA and Dean Sloane, Managing Director of Clean Vehicle Solutions LLC, issued a joint statement confirming the EPA’s approval of a Diesel-to-CNG dedicated package for the diesel International DT 466 series engine.
The availability of the DT 466 series engine is an important landmark due to its popularity in the school/transit bus and delivery truck market and forms an integral part of the two companies’ ongoing collaboration in meeting the needs of the rapidly expanding demand for vehicles powered by CNG.
The companies have already partnered together to successfully engineer, fabricate and install the first EPA-certified, dedicated diesel to CNG conversion package for the Mercedes 906 Engine. This new DT 466 package significantly expands the number of vehicles that can now utilize clean, less polluting fuel in the nation’s large metropolitan areas.
Conversions may be done on any of the Diesel DT 466 series engines model years 2005-2010. NGV Motori, USA/CVS’s partnership is also making available EPA-certified, CNG Dedicated Conversion for the Ford E 450 Super duty 6.8L V10 engine and the E350 Super Duty 5.4L gas engine. Models created up through 2007 are eligible for conversion.
This strategic collaboration between NGV Motori and CVS positions the two companies to continue to lead in the rapidly expanding light and heavy-duty CNG vehicle markets in the United States.
According to Sloane, “CVS has just moved into a new, larger headquarters in West Nyack, NY, a move made possible by the continued rise in the popularity of CNG as an alternative fuel for more and more Class 2 through Class 8 vehicles.“ And according to Sunny DeWakar, CEO Of NGV Motori, USA, “CVS brings tremendous qualifications, experience and innovation to the market, and we are extremely pleased to continue our close working partnership with them, to provide our CNG packages to the marketplace.”
