      BusinessWire July 22, 2020 - OptiFuel Testing of Preproduction RNG Hybrid Line-Haul Locomotive

      OptiFuel Systems, a system integrator of Cummins and BAE Systems hybrid power products for decarbonizing the rail, marine, and microgrid power market, is in the process of finalizing a $2.6 million U.S. DOE grant to demonstrate a pre-production RNG hybrid 4,300 hp line-haul locomotive.

      OptiFuel has already developed and tested a high volume CNG/RNG refueling system at the Indiana Harbor Belt CNG locomotive program. In the next 2 years, OptiFuel will be announcing a 12,000 DGE CNG/RNG tender. Using RNG as the fuel, OptiFuel’s locomotive will far exceed California’s Tier 5 locomotive petition standards to U.S. EPA. OptiFuel’s OFS12 engine, which is identical to the Cummins ISX12N for on-road applications, is the cleanest rail engine currently certified by EPA.

      The pre-production locomotive will consume 83% natural gas along with 20% improved efficiency versus Tier 4 diesel line-haul freight locomotives. The CNG is expected to cost between 0.70 to $1.35 per DGE. This is well below the 10-year average cost of $2.45 that the Class 1 railroads have paid for diesel.
