CNG-powered Kamaz vehicles on display

The municipality of Naberezhnye Chelny, located in the the Russian Republic of Tatarstan, recently hosted a conference on “CNG KAMAZ Vehicles”, which was initiated by OJSC KAMAZ – OOO RariTEK, the manufacturer. Participants learned of the many benefits of utilising natural gas fuelled vehicles. The municipality was able to report on its experience operating 8 combined street-sweeping dump trucks leased from Kamaz early 2011. The CNG fuelled ED-405AGs, based on KAMAZ-65115-30 chassis and operating to Euro IV standard, reduced operational costs by more than 2 million rubles (almost USD 66,000) over 8 months.
