HHS Retrofit Pilot Project

In late July HHS received a truck from Denver International Airport for our Retrofit Pilot Project. It is a Chevy 2500 that runs on compressed natural gas (CNG) and is used for runway checks and plowing. Our plan is to put this truck back on the DIA runway in early October for demonstration and testing.

Work began immediately on assessing the controls systems, transmission and torque converter. Shortly thereafter we created a test stand on which to mount all of the components of the system so we could easily test and evaluate each component of the system.

The system changes daily and is getting closer and closer to being ready to be put back on the truck. Stay tuned here for more information about this Retrofit Pilot Project.
