Alberta company starts operating first LNG powered tractor trail unit

The units store natural gas in liquid form in specialized LNG fuel tanks where the product is then converted back into a gaseous state for combustion in the engine’s cylinders.  The unit will have a range in excess of 700km.  Ferus believes these trucks will replace the conventional diesel tractors normally used for this service.

The company says there are a number of benefits including a substantial fuel cost savings, reduced emissions of greenhouse gases and they will also support North American natural gas industry.

Ferus intends to add additional units to its operation in the coming months with the ultimate goal of converting its entire transportation fleet to run on natural gas.
