Post by MEC407 » Tue Apr 22, 2014 10:24 am

Press release from Motive Power & Equipment Solutions:
Motive Power & Equipment Solutions, Inc. (MP&ES), a leading provider of new and remanufactured locomotives, has introduced the Greenville™ locomotive, an ultra­‐low emissions Gen Set locomotive powered by a combination of natural gas and diesel fuels. “Natural gas offers our customers an opportunity to greatly reduce their operating fuel costs while cutting emissions at the same time,” said MP&ES CEO and President David Wilkerson. “The availability of low cost, US sourced natural gas provides an unprecedented opportunity for green locomotives. MP&ES has invested heavily in technology, research and staffing to be at the forefront of delivering highly affordable, natural gas powered locomotives for switcher and short line operations.”
. . .
The company, which manufactures a line of locomotives under the MP designation, expects to begin taking orders on its Greenville TM MP1500 (1500Hp) dual fuel locomotives later in 2014, with other models to follow. Recently, MP&ES was selected by the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad Company (IHB) as one of a limited number of qualified vendors being considered for the conversion of 31 locomotives to natural gas.
