Among the top brands, many believe all excavators are the same. But when you look closely, you can spot the small differences in design that add up to huge differences in productivity and efficiency — differences that can boost your profitability.
Momentum Fuel Technologies has introduced GreenLync 2.0, an enhanced electronics communication system for its line of compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system solutions for Class 6 to Class 8 trucks. Momentum utilizes the most advanced proprietary technologies to provide valuable real-time information to drivers, fleet managers and technicians to effectively manage, diagnose and service CNG vehicles. GreenLync 2.0 technology provides drivers with information they've never had before, focusing on driver confidence and providing a more diesel-like experience. Through collaboration with Cummins, the system is designed to reduce false occurrences of engine fault codes, and further, GreenLync 2.0 technology can integrate with telematics platforms to enable fleet managers to understand their vehicle performance and optimize fuel management.
A new study on industrial accident prevention has shown that broadband sound reversing alarms for commerical vehicles, are nearly twice as effective than their tonal equivalents; making broadband sound the most effective audible reversing safety solution for a variety of industries.
Oil sands producer Suncor has announced it will proceed with the phased implementation of autonomous haulage systems (AHS) at company-operated mines, starting with the North Steepbank mine. Over the next six years, the company expects to deploy more than 150 autonomous haul trucks in the full program, which will be one of the largest investments in electric autonomous vehicles in the world.
DTN has released its newest enhancements to its Terminal Inventory Management System, DTN TIMS. The latest version further improves operational forecasting by introducing pipeline schedule data to increase insights, enable data-driven decision making and provide greater control of fuel inventory.

The pre-shift inspection poster and video provide general guidelines to identify and report irregular tire, rim and wheel conditions early, lowering the lifecycle cost of OTR tires.
When loads exceeding a quarter of a million pounds need to be moved, few haulers in the United States possess the kind of equipment operated by Edwards Moving and Rigging.
ARDCO introduces a new AMT Pipe Trailer attachment for the Articulating Multi-Purpose Truck (AMT). Designed for safe and efficient handling of pipe, the AMT Pipe Trailer offers adjustable lengths and exceptional load capacity, making it ideal for off-road transport in pipeline or utility construction applications.
Irving Oil has announced the grand opening of its St. John's Marine Terminal Expansion - a $20-million investment that will improve harbour logistics and help position St. John's Harbour for future growth. The expansion adds a new fuelling berth on Pier 23, adjacent to the company's existing facilities on Pier 24, doubling the number of vessels that can access marine gas oil (MGO) via pipeline at its Marine Terminal.
Blackmer S Series Twin Screw pumps provide numerous design and efficiency advantages that are ideal for transfering bitumen from tankers to the distant tank-farm facility. Liquid bitumen must be handled at very high temperatures in order to keep it at a workable viscosity. However, even at high temperatures liquid bitumen can be an extremely viscous and shear-sensitive product. Therefore, shipyard operators and tanker owners demand a pumping technology that has been specifically designed to transfer highly viscous liquids over great distances.
Westport Fuel Systems Inc. has commended the publication of a new study by West Virginia University scientists at the Center for Alternative Fuels, Engines and Emissions ("CAFEE") quantifying methane emissions from heavy-duty natural gas-powered vehicles and refueling stations. CAFEE scientists collaborated on the study with the Environmental Defense Fund ("EDF") and a group of global natural gas industry leaders including the American Gas Association, Chart Industries, Clean Energy, Cummins, Cummins Westport, International Council on Clean Transportation, PepsiCo, Shell, Volvo Group, Waste Management, and Westport Fuel Systems. The study was published online by the journal Environmental Science & Technology and the results greatly expand on the very limited data on methane emissions from natural gas vehicles.
