    Landi Renzo Gets EPA Nod for Heavy-Duty Natural Gas Conversions
    on 11 Nov 2013 by NGTNews
    Landi Renzo USA says it has received approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its dual-fuel diesel and natural gas system for Detroit Diesel S60 12.7-liter engines. The company originally announced the offering back in June. This EPA certification covers outside-useful-life applications on factory remanufactured, pre-EGR engines, the company says.

    Not too impressed with one IUL approval, gained by a foreign company.

    How about an American company with about 450 EPA OUL approvals? American Power Group (APGI)

    You've got Wheeltime, Blu, Evol and others all having done the side by side testing of the various dual-fuel conversion candidates, and they're going with APG's V5000HD system. It's simply got a more sophisticated and effective software system, a more universal, reliable, adaptable, and most of all, dealer-network-supported product than any of the post-turbo and/or injector invasive systems.

    The era of clean natural gas fueling is finally getting the traction it deserves, and in the vehicular and stationary use markets, APG is leading the way.

      The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has certified Landi Renzo's dedicated compressed natural gas (CNG) versions of six medium-duty Ford trucks from the 2017 model year.

      The trucks use Ford's 6.8L V-10 gasoline engine with a gaseous prep package:

        Landi Renzo USA ensures that we are in full compliance with FMVSS 571.303 because, as stated in the regulation, the purpose of the test is to reduce deaths and injuries occurring from fires that result from fuel leakage during and after motor vehicle crashes. Protecting the lives of drivers and passengers is critically important for us.

        We complete three individual tests – frontal barrier crash, rear moving barrier crash, and lateral moving barrier crash. That is right, we take a perfectly good Ford truck equipped with our CNG system and crash it to ensure compliance with the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements.

        Whether you are responsible for selling CNG vehicles to end users or you are the fleet manager specifying trucks, there is too much liability, and potentially lives, at stake to not buy CNG vehicles that are compliant with Federal law.
