Advanced Engine Components (AEC) is a world leader in the development and manufacture of systems to enable heavy duty bus and truck engines to run on natural gas (CNG, LNG) and biodiesel.
Over the past two years, AEC has developed systems for a range of heavy duty engines manufactured by Weichai, one of China's biggest engine manufacturers. The engines have been successfully tested and certified, and are now in commercial production. AEC is now supplying Weichai with system components on a commercial basis. Similar arrangements with two other major Chinese engine manufacturers will see AEC sales in the region increase rapidly, with total sales of $40 million forecast for 2009.
