EcoDual, LLC, a provider of diesel to natural gas dual-fuel conversion systems for heavy duty diesel powered trucks and The W. W. Williams Company, one of the USA’s largest industrial distribution, repair and service companies, have announced an arrangement under which W.W. Williams will serve as a master distributor for EcoDual’s dual-fuel conversion systems throughout North America. The EcoDual systems enable heavy duty diesel trucks to displace an average of 60-70% of their diesel fuel use with natural gas, providing significant fuel cost savings.
In dual-fuel operation, the trucks maintain full torque and power with no loss of miles per gallon. Systems can be configured for range of more than 800 miles on Compressed (CNG) or Liquefied (LNG) natural gas. Equally important, there is no “range anxiety” with EcoDual systems as they automatically run on 100% diesel if the natural gas tank ever runs out.
“This partnership with W.W. Williams provides a major expansion of EcoDual’s market presence and a national supply network,” said EcoDual CEO and President Scott Myers. “This enables us to deliver, service and maintain our products nationwide, for all OEM engines.”
In its role as master distributor, W.W. Williams will coordinate sales, delivery and service throughout their eleven state network of 34 facilities. “Our customers have already requested natural gas dual-fuel conversion systems,” said W. W. Williams Chairman and CEO Bill Williams. “EcoDual’s products provide immediate, major fuel cost savings for truck fleets and represent an important business expansion opportunity for us.”
W.W. Williams has comprehensive factory authorized sales, maintenance, and service centers for Detroit Diesel and MTU engines and also provides service for many other diesel engines including Cummins, Mack, Volvo and Caterpillar.
