GFS Corp, a developer of systems that allow large, high horsepower diesel engines to operate on a dual-fuel combination of natural gas and diesel, in mid-December announced it is set to convert Komatsu 930E haul trucks to LNG operation at a mine in Mexico. The company’s EVO-MT® 9300 System allows large mining equipment to use LNG in place of diesel fuel to save money and to reduce emissions.
The version of the system to be used in the Mexico project will include both a hydraulic/LNG combo tank and the optional diesel/LNG combo tank providing a total of 600 usable gallons of LNG storage capacity.
“We are excited about the opportunity to bring our EVO-MT® technology to the mining sector in Mexico”, said Jason Green, GFS Corp’s President and Chief Technology Officer. “We see this new project as additional validation that the use of LNG can have a positive impact on sustainability while reducing production costs for global mining companies.”
GFS Corp offers retrofit NG+D®, natural gas plus diesel, systems for a range of Caterpillar, Komatsu and Terex mining vehicles.
