OshKosh's McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing will offer its McNeilus Next Generation (NGEN) Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) systems to a wider range of vehicle types, including construction, delivery, over-the-road, and other severe-duty fleets. These include Class 8 dump and over-the-road trucks, buses, and delivery and service vehicles, the company announced.

“We’re a pioneer in the development of CNG systems for the refuse and concrete mixer industries, and we’ve applied that expertise to engineer alternative-fuel solutions for commercial vehicle fleets of all types,” said Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corp.'s senior vice president and president of the commercial business segment.

McNeilus NGEN CNG systems are available on new vehicles and retrofits through the company’s national network of regional installation centers.

The company’s fuel management system reduces the number of fittings and increases reliability, while the fuel storage pods feature lightweight DOT Type 4 tanks, according to the company. McNeilus systems meet all NFPA-52 standards and are installed by the company’s team of factory-trained technicians.

NGEN CNG systems are backed by a two-year standard warranty, with an optional extended warranty. In addition, McNeilus carries a comprehensive inventory of replacement parts on hand at its regional installation centers.

“To give customers more effective choices, McNeilus engineers a variety of mounting options and fuel tank capacities. New configurations are constantly in development to respond to this quickly growing market,” Nelson said.
