A GREEN engineering company with a base in Lancashire has won a contract worth £500,000.

Clean Air Power has landed an order for 19 Genesis-Edge, Dual-Fuel trucks from a major distribution company in the UK.

The trucks are to be fitted out at the company’s base in Leyland.

Clean Air Power is a global leader in Dual-Fuel engine management systems for heavy duty vehicles.

The firm said the customer already operates more than 100 Clean Air Power Dual-Fuel vehicles in its UK distribution fleet and they say the repeat order demonstrates the customer’s continuing satisfaction with the firm’s products.

John Pettitt, Chief Executive of Clean Air Power said: “This is a significant follow-on order for our Genesis-EDGE product from this customer and adds to 28 Dual-Fuel systems that we have already delivered so far this year following orders placed in 2013.”

Mr Pettitt added: “The strong demand for our products is being driven by the expansion of Europe’s natural gas refuelling network and the increased supply of vehicles available to retrofit as a result of the high level of late Euro 5 vehicle purchases made at the end of 2013.

“With further European orders expected imminently and the launch of new products in the US and Russia coming later this year I am confident that the Company is on-course to meet market expectation in 2014.”

Clean Air Power is the developer and provider of Dual-Fuel combustion technology for heavy duty diesel engines.

Dual-Fuel engines substantially cut fuel costs and carbon emissions without sacrificing the original engine’s characteristic efficiency or reliability.
