Blossman Services and Canada’s BL Energie have formed a joint venture – BL Energie USA – to develop, certify, market and sell propane-diesel dual fuel systems for heavy duty Class 7 & 8 trucks.

The technology, from Prins in the Netherlands, can displace enough costly diesel to reduce overall fuel costs by 17% to 20%, the companies say. If successful, the new JV will help bring propane autogas to a new class of vehicle.

“We are offering an alternative to carriers interested in converting new or existing trucks to propane autogas,” says BL Energie Canada president Yvon Boisclair. His firm has converted more than 150 Class 7 and Class 8 diesel trucks with Volvo, Detroit Diesel, Cummins and Caterpillar engines since setting up shop in 2009, he says.

The BL Energie USA joint venture intends to provide both U.S. EPA- and California Air Resources Board-certified conversions.

Blossman, BL Energie USA and Prins are exhibiting with Alliance AutoGas at 
Booth 923.
