VIDEO: GE Transportation Introduces NextFuel Gas Retrofit Kit (USA)
GE Transportation posted a video of the company’s new NextFuelTM Natural Gas Retrofit Kits that enable existing Evolution Series locomotives to operate with dual fuel capabilities.
This gives railroads flexibility to run on both diesel fuel and liquid natural gas (LNG) with up to 80 percent gas substitution as well as run 100 percent diesel.
GE’s NextFuel kits allow railroads to use natural gas as a fuel source, reducing emissions and potentially reducing fuel costs by 50 percent while not compromising performance.
