Watch our customers talk about how PowerHaul has impacted their operations:

The Case for PowerHaul: 

Operating on the congested UK freight network, leading rail freight services provider, Freightliner Group, Ltd. wanted to increase both capacity and locomotive power. Specifically, they sought high performing, cost-efficient long-haul locomotives that would deliver better environmental performance along with long-lasting ruggedness and reliability.

The result: 

With cost-effective and flexible fueling platforms, the NextFuel Natural Gas Retrofit Kit delivers superior efficiencies for the next generation of locomotive power.
