GFS Corp, U.S. designer and manufacturer of proprietary solutions that enable high horsepower, heavy-duty diesel engines to operate on a combination of natural gas and diesel fuel, has released a new system designed for the Caterpillar 793D mine haul truck. The first of these systems have been installed at a coal mine in the Powder River Basin in southeast Montana and northeast Wyoming, known for its coal deposits.
The new EVO-MT 7930 System for 793D haul trucks joins the company’s previous offerings for Caterpillar 793B and C model trucks, which have been available since mid 2012. It incorporates all of the same benefits and features of the previous systems that allow mine operators the option of using more sustainable and less expensive liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a substitute for diesel fuel in their haul trucks.
“We are pleased to be able to offer another cost saving solution for miners,” said Jason Green, GFS Corp’s President and Chief Technology Officer, “Now that our EVO-MT Systems are a proven technology, the next natural step is to roll out additional versions of the system designed for other haul truck makes and models.”
The company is currently taking orders for its EVO-MT® Systems designed for use on Komatsu 830 AC or DC, Komatsu 930E’s as well as Caterpillar 777 B, C and 793 B,C and D models.
