KAG Canada recently placed a $1 million order with IFS for the patent-pending systems.
“We’re expanding the use of IFS’s MFTP technology within our Canadian fleet because it provides GHG emissions reductions and fuel savings and has proven to be very reliable in our two years of commercial operations,” Chris Chapman, vice president of fleet services for KAG Canada, said in a news release. “We’ll continue to further roll out the IFS technology as driven by our customers’ needs to reduce GHG emissions from our trucking operations.”
The initial order will begin the first stage of KAG’s deployment of IFS’s MFTP technology on existing heavy-duty trucks in Alberta and Ontario. By using IFS’s MFTP technology to displace diesel fuel with cleaner burning natural gas, KAG hopes to reduce GHG emissions and fuel costs in its commercial truck operations, the companies said.
“Our best-in-class MFTP retrofit technology is the only available methodology that can economically reduce GHG emissions for existing HD diesel trucks,” said Leland Oberst, IFS president and CEO. “With several years of commercial deployments, our MFTP technology has proven to add value by reducing GHG emissions and fuel costs.
“We are delighted that KAG has chosen our MFTP technology as part of their HD truck GHG emissions reduction strategy.”
