Go Freedom orders APG’s dual fuel systems

American Power Group has been selected by Go Freedom Fuel to provide APG’s turbocharged natural gas dual fuel systems in conjunction with a Go Freedom pilot program focusing on the quarries and mines of Northeast Oklahoma.

Eight APG V5000 systems will be purchased and installed on Go Freedom customer vehicles with previously approved EPA engine families and two APG V5000 systems will be installed on a large CAT Off-Highway quarry truck and a CAT wheel loader after APG’s EPA test exemption application has been approved, the company said in a statement.

Go Freedom’s principals, Bridger Kucinski and Joe Barnts said that the off-highway segment of loaders and heavy haul trucks in the quarry and open pit mining industries is in need of a viable alternative fuel solution to reduce their diesel consumption.
