Blue Gas Marine, Inc. is expanding its network of dealers and natural gas fuelling station locations across the US.
The company, headquartered in Apex, North Carolina, makes natural gas hybrid fuel systems for existing gasoline and diesel engines on boats, and also makes the fuel available where boaters need it.
CNG or LNG
The onboard fuel system is designed to be installed on existing outboard/inboard engines, and can operate on either CNG or LNG. The system is an add-on that enables any boat to use natural gas without disrupting its existing fuel system, cutting the cost of fuel and making the boat more environmentally friendly.
Miguel Guerreiro, President and CEO, commented: "We have a growing demand for our natural gas fuel system so now we are looking to expand our network of authorized dealerships and fueling station locations. We partner with marinas and marine service centers, who we train and certify, to perform the installations of our natural gas systems. Many of these locations also serve as fueling stations on the water and near water for dry stacks as well. This is really a great opportunity for marinas and marine service centers to grow right along with us, and we are excited about that."
Blue Gas Marine aims to partner with marinas with boats stored on site wet/dry and marine service centers with the ability to perform installations, which the company trains and certifies. Each authorised dealer will have a demo boat running on the natural gas fuel system, have the ability to dispense the fuel on the water via one of the fuelling solutions and be warranty servicers for one or more engine brands.
The company is looking to expand operations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Texas, and California specifically, and across the US in general.
