To add to this, the low price of NGV fuels helps to save a lot. I’m sure our experience will be useful for many companies with large vehicle fleets,” commented Lyubov Brish, General Director of LLC Gazprom Helium Servis.

The top Russian truck maker KAMAZ PTC can produce up to 8 thous. vehicles and 2 thous. buses running on natural gas every year. The high performance was achieved because gas engines, vehicles and buses are made in a single technological flow side by side with diesel vehicles. It is only gas equipment that is mounted separately, in a detached building. For KAMAZ, gas-engine vehicles and buses are ordinary mass-produced units. The NGV model range produced is almost a full equivalent to the diesel line, and the NGVs are equipped with engines running both on compressed and liquefied natural gas.
