McNeilus NGEN Brand Delivers Custom CNG Solutions

McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, has engineered and installed a custom NGEN™ Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) system for over-the-road trucks owned by Gold Standard Transportation in Chicago, Illinois. The project included the addition of behind-the-cab vertical tanks that significantly increased fuel capacity and traveling distance between fuel stops.

“McNeilus has installed complete CNG systems on 4 of my trucks, and also provided a custom installation to add 19 DGE capacity on 2 others. The additional capacity eliminated the need for these trucks to require a fuel stop,” said Gino Fortuna, president of Gold Standard Transportation. “We’ve been running CNG since the Cummins 11.8 l engine was introduced. I believe CNG is the future – primarily due to reduced fuel costs, cleaner running engines and extended longevity.”

The Gold Standard vertical tank installations were completed at McNeilus’ Chicago branch where certified technicians added 20% more fuel capacity for vehicles traveling to and from St. Louis, Cincinnati, Cleveland and other locations in the Midwest. By integrating vertically mounted fuel tanks, the tractor-trailers are able to maintain the required swing clearance needed for operation.

McNeilus is an industry leader with more than 5,000 NGEN CNG vehicles on the road from coast to coast. McNeilus engineers a variety of mounting options and fuel capacities to meet customer needs, with new configurations constantly in development. NGEN CNG systems are installed on heavy-duty vehicles through the company’s national network of installation centers.

Based in Chicago, Gold Standard Transportation Inc. is an innovative transportation company with 14 over-the-road vehicles operating in the Midwest and as far south as Arlington, Texas.
