More technicians trained as CNG demand rises


    The CNG business is expanding rapidly locally, and officials are aiming to get approximately 10% of the vehicles running on this cleaner type of fuel.

    Due to this, training of CNG technicians at the National Energy Skills Center is being done in larger groups.

    There is a demand for hundreds of conversions monthly, and NGC CNG President Curtis Mohammed says the industry still has significant room to grow in the years to come.

    25 young recently trained CNG technicians are now working with two licensed converters after completing an intensive training course.

    Mr. Mohammed suggested these technicians develop themselves to form a system of CNG inspectors to ensure conversions are done according to standards.
