The initial order represents an estimated total value of USD 2.2 million (approx. NOK 20.5 million) with additional orders expected to follow.
As a low carbon fuel, CNG can result in reductions of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared to diesel of over 20% when using conventional natural gas, or 90% or more when using renewable natural gas (RNG) produced from landfills, dairy farms and other bio sources.
Seung Baik, President, Agility Fuel Solutions, says:
“It makes environmental and economic sense to deploy CNG trucks right now, and the low cost and maturity of the technology make it possible to do so at scale.”
Deliveries of the first order of CNG fuel systems are scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2020.
