WESTON, Fla., May 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GFS Corp's technology is an aftermarket conversion system that allows large haul trucks to operate using a combination of liquid natural gas and diesel fuel. In many parts of the world, liquid natural gas, or LNG, is available at a substantial cost savings over diesel fuel. The EVO-MT® System brings a significant fuel cost saving to mines that that have the availability of liquid natural gas. Additional benefits are also obtained, as LNG is a cleaner and more sustainable fuel source.
"We are pleased to partner with Power Train Technologies to bring our EVO-MT technology to the Chilean mining sector. As a major mining power and with two large LNG import terminals in the country, Chile is well positioned to benefit from the increasing global trade in LNG by displacing more expensive diesel fuel", said George Aguilera, Executive VP of GFS Corp.
Currently GFS Corp offers conversions systems for four truck models, Caterpillar 777 and 793 as well as the Komatsu 830 and 930. Converted Caterpillar and Komatsu trucks have been in daily operation at mines in the western United States successfully accumulating tens of thousands of hours of run time while allowing significant fuel cost savings and improved sustainability to the operators.
"We are very excited to add the EVO-MT Systems to our portfolio of solutions and to be a part of the GFS family. Both our companies are in the business of offering our customers solutions that tackle operational costs and carbon footprint and that's exactly what this partnership is about, " said Alex Gildemeister, General Manager of Power Train Technologies.
