Double deal joy for Clean Air Power
Clean Air Power has announced two new orders this week, securing one at home and another abroad.The Leyland-based company, a developer and global leader in dual-fuel engine management systems for heavy duty vehicles, announces that it received an order for 19 of its Genesis-EDGE, Dual-Fuel trucks from a major distribution company in the UK, worth around £500,000.
The trucks will be fitted with Clean Air Power’s Genesis-EDGE system at its facility in Lancashire.This was followed by an order from its German distributor worth around £300,000 for its natural gas injectors that will be used in the manufacture of a 7-litre medium-duty spark ignited natural gas engine by a global truck manufacturer.
The engine, which is suitable for use in vehicles such as buses and refuse vehicles, is to be aimed at the growing Russian market where the government there has set out plans to encourage the use of natural gas as a road fuel throughout the country.Chief executive John Pettitt said: "The strong demand for our products is being driven by the expansion of Europe’s natural gas refuelling network and the increased supply of vehicles available to retrofit as a result of the high level of late Euro 5 vehicle purchases made at the end of 2013. "With further European orders expected imminently and the launch of new products in the US and Russia coming later this year I am confident that the Company is on-course to meet market expectation in 2014."
