Teknosis, Omnitek Engineering Corp.’s exclusive distributor in Turkey, is now operating under the name Omnitek Turkiye, as it accelerates sales and marketing of diesel-to-natural gas engine conversions for heavy-duty trucks and municipal buses throughout the country.
“Our partnership in Turkey is gaining meaningful momentum as public and private customers recognize Omnitek’s cost-effective alternative to high-polluting diesel powered engines and costly new natural gas vehicle purchases. This is particularly compelling to municipal bus fleet operators in Turkey given a payback-period as short as four months due to the high price differential between diesel and natural gas in Turkey. In addition, the country’s expanding infrastructure of compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling stations complements our strategic growth expectations in Turkey and provides a model for other countries to emulate,” said Werner Funk, president and chief executive officer of Omnitek Engineering Corp.
Funk noted that Omnitek Turkiye’s R&D Center is now fully operational and focused on developing conversion kits for an expanding line of specific engine models operating in the Turkish market.
He highlighted ongoing municipal bus conversions utilizing Omnitek’s technology in the Turkish cities of Konya, Kayseri, Adana and Eskisehir.
In June, Teknosis established a collaborative alliance with natural gas infrastructure company Naturelgaz and Hayat Inovasyon, a subsidiary of Hayat Holding, with a near-term goal to accelerate the utilization of natural gas engines.
