W.W. Transport, Inc., (WW Transport), working out of West Burlington, Iowa, has passed the one-hundred mark of heavy-haul Class 8 trucks in its fleet now fitted with APG Turbo charged Natural Gas® Dual Fuel systems, making it American Power Group’s largest customer to date. In addition to standard freight activities, WW Transport conducts a specialized freight service of food grade bulk hauling, both liquid and dry bulk, including refrigerated items.
Kyle Weuve, WW Transport’s Chief Financial Officer stated, “We are strong believers in the long term economic and environmental benefits of using natural gas as an alternative transportation fuel as evidenced by the significant investments we have made thus far in natural gas fueling infrastructure and natural gas vehicles. The reduction in harmful diesel-related emissions is an added bonus towards achieving our corporate and customer driven sustainability goals.” Weuve says the dual-fuel system retains diesel-like power and torque which is critical for heavy-haul routes.
Lyle Jensen, CEO of American Power Group commented, “WW Transport has become a natural gas sustainability leader utilizing natural gas fueling stations, dedicated natural gas trucks and APG’s natural gas dual-fuel conversion technology to meet today’s logistics needs with a cleaner alternative fuel solution. There are not many fleets in the United States that have more than 100 heavy-duty trucks running on some form of natural gas so APG is pleased that our field performance has achieved this customer satisfaction milestone.”
