Chart and GFW launch dual LNG/diesel fuelling truck

Published by
LNG Industry,


Chart has announced that it has joined forces with Ground Force Worldwide (GFW) to launch the first dual LNG/diesel fuelling truck.

The vehicle was designed and constructed specifically for a large rock quarry customer in Florida, US. The customer is reportedly using the vehicle to fuel its recently converted fleet of haul trucks, which were retrofitted with LNG conversions.

Chart claims that the truck is based on a Kenworth T800 and Chart’s Orca unit. Originally developed as an efficient way to deliver packaged atmospheric gases, the latest incarnation of this unit bears testament to its longevity and durability.

Neither company has worked together before, and this project was GFW’s first venture into LNG and cryogenics. Chart claims that – with the mining sector increasingly interested in LNG, and the major truck original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) developing LNG and LNG/diesel hybrid haulers – there is the potential for this partnership to grow.
