American Power Group Corporation (APG) and Galileo Technologies US (Galileo) jointly announced their plan to leverage their complementary alternative fuel capabilities and pursue business opportunities together. The two companies believe that the collaboration will lower net fuel costs and reduce carbon emissions for their customers.

APG’s dual fuel system is a patented aftermarket upgrade system which introduces natural gas into the induction system of a diesel engine, allowing it to operate on diesel fuel and natural gas simultaneously.

Galileo Technologies is a global company with its United States headquarters in Middlesex, New Jersey. The company markets its compression, regasification, and liquefied natural gas (LNG) equipment and services in more than 70 countries. Galileo uses technology and modular compression designs to offer a full line of turnkey service applications with modern supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) monitoring. Galileo’s fueling equipment can enable the monetization of natural gas from any source (wellhead, flared, pipeline, or stranded) by converting it into low-carbon renewable natural gas (RNG), compressed natural gas (CNG), or LNG. Galileo believes that the result is greater efficiency and lower fuel burn. The modular and compact sized construction of the Cryobox, Nanobox, Microbox, and Gigabox units makes it flexible, minimizing installation and operating costs and maximizing equipment uptime for all types of fleet vehicles and fleet sizes.

“We are excited to align ourselves with Galileo as we believe APG’s low-cost, dual fuel solution can positively impact demand for all the various natural gas fuel configurations that Galileo’s equipment can produce at a lower cost point of entry for their customers,” said Matt Van Steenwyk, APG’s chair. “Between the oil and gas stationary power industry and the Class 8 trucking industry, it would appear our strategic focus and complementary capabilities provide a unique technology platform focused on decarbonization of the energy and transportation logistics supply chain.”

“The market is in need of turnkey modular, quick-to-market and value-added solutions that our Cryobox, Gigabox, Microbox, and Nanobox systems can provide,” said Ty Webb, Galileo’s senior VP of Sales. “Our expanding network of CNG, RNG, and LNG facilities in North America provide accessible field service support through the entire project lifespan from conception through execution. In essence, Galileo and APG can enable our collective customers to take more control over their fueling needs by sourcing natural gas closer to the point of use. Traditional distillate fuel supply chains and refining networks are running at full capacity and the inevitable interruptions, either planned or unplanned, create uncertainly in supply and costs that can be greatly alleviated by using regional natural gas sources to improve reliability and lower fuel cost significantly. We very much look forward to working the with the APG dual fuel team to maximize commercial alternative fuel opportunities that will benefit our mutual customers.”
