Mumbai: Advanced Technologies and Fuels Canada Inc (ATFCAN), which designs and delivers clean energy projects in international markets, has tied up with Mumbai Gold Cabs Pvt Ltd for the conversion of 250 vehicles which would be run on compressed natural gas (CNG).
As part of ATFCAN’s CNG India project, around 200 new units of Maruti Esteem and 50 Tata Indigo Marina vehicles of Mumbai Gold Cabs will be fitted with compressed natural gas kits from ECO Fuel Systems of Canada, according to ATFCAN President and CEO Rodney Semotiuk.
The ARAI-certified kits comply with Bharat III emissions levels standards and will be installed by ACE Gas Conversions Pvt Ltd of Mumbai, in collaboration with ECO Fuel Systems.
Fuel consumption, mileage, and levels of greenhouse gas emissions generated by the converted vehicle will be monitored over a period of time and will be refined/ modified if need be.
