GasTech Solutions is a green energy division of Control Infotech Pvt. Ltd. which in turn is a part of CI Group with global businesses conducted from India and the USA.
GasTech promotes Dual Fuel technology for high speed Diesel engines. As a part of implementation of this technology an existing Diesel engine can be retrofitted with a simple kit to operate with a mix of Methane rich gases (For example Natural Gas) and Diesel. This conversion helps reduce the cost of fuel and the harmful contents of the engine emission for the same amount of electrical or mechanical energy produced. Engine life and the operational safety are not affected. Dual Fuel conversions are used mainly for Power Generation and Transportation applications.
Currently Dual Fuel technology is viable only for larger Diesel engines. GasTech is working on developing low cost conversion kits for smaller engines. We are also researching Direct Injection (DI) technology for Dual Fuel conversions of slow speed Diesel engines. Dialogues are on for close cooperation on this effort between NCCRD – National Center for Combustion Research at IIT Madras for the above developments.
GasTech is a Sales and Service Dealer for GFS Corporation of the USA. GFS Corp designs, manufactures and sells proprietary solutions that enable high horsepower, heavy-duty diesel engines to operate on natural gas in combination with diesel fuel. The company’s primary focus is providing fully integrated alternative fuel solutions for the mining, construction, stationary power and rail markets.
