Omnitek Engineering Corp. has appointed Chesapeake, Virginia-based TFC Recycling as an authorized installation center for its diesel-to-natural gas engine conversion systems in the region.
Omnitek Engineering also said that TFC Recycling will purchase diesel-to-natural gas engine conversion kits for its own fleet, as well as perform engine conversions for customers that utilize TFC's affiliated fleet maintenance operation.
Omnitek expects to commence shipments in the current quarter.
Omnitek Engineering is accelerating its conversion center partnerships throughout the United States and Canada since receiving EPA approval for its diesel-to-natural gas engine conversion technology for the widely operated line of heavy-duty Navistar DT466E and DT530E engines.
The company expects to obtain EPA and CARB approval for additional diesel engine models to address the anticipated increasing demand from trucking fleets that operate with other diesel engine models.
