Momentum Fuel Technologies introduced its complete compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system solution for Class 6 to Class 8 trucks, offering support in design, manufacturing, sales and ongoing service throughout the product life cycle.
According to ACT Research Co., adoption rates for U.S. Class 8 natural gas-powered commercial vehicles will grow steadily from four percent in 2014 to an estimated 10 percent in 2018 and 23 percent in 2020.
The company plans to offer both side-mount and back-of-cab mount systems. Side-mount systems include a 40DGE with a range of 176-220 miles and 45DGE with a range of 198-248 miles. The back-of-cab mount system we initially intend to offer will be 110DGE with a range of 506-633 miles. We expect to offer another back-of-cab mount system, 150DGE with a range of 660-825 miles in fall 2015.
“We will continue to work with Cummins Engine Company and other major engine manufacturers,” said general manager Mike Zimmerman.
