Natural gas conversion systems manufacturer GFS has announced the launch of a new system designed for the Caterpillar 793D Model truck.

According to the company, the latest EVO-MT 7930 system has benefits and features similar to that of the previous EVO-MT systems.

Mine operators using the new system can use sustainable and less expensive liquid natural gas as a substitute for diesel fuel in their haul trucks.

GFS installed the first of the EVO-MT 7930 systems at a coal mine in the Powder River Basin.

"Now that our EVO-MT Systems are a proven technology, the next natural step is to roll-out additional versions of the system designed for other haul truck makes and models."

GFS president and chief technology officer Jason Green said: "We are pleased to be able to offer another cost saving solution for miners.

"Now that our EVO-MT Systems are a proven technology, the next natural step is to roll-out additional versions of the system designed for other haul truck makes and models."

The company said that is in the process of taking orders for its EVO-MT Systems, which have been designed for use on Komatsu 830 AC or DC, Komatsu 930E’s, as well as Caterpillar 777 B, C and 793 B, C, D models.

Using the EVO-MT system, Caterpillar 793 mine haul trucks operators can cut operational costs and improve sustainability.

The system consists of new technologies and allows haul trucks to safely operate on gas percentages, ranging from 50% to 70% of their total fuel requirement.
