Hometown Highlight: NGV Global Group
NGV Global Group in Dallas, Texas, is dedicated to helping a variety of fleets like large trucking companies, oil and gas companies and government agencies in reducing their operating costs and greenhouse gas emissions. NGV Global group converts trucks and even off-road applications such as drilling rigs and power generation needs to operate completely on natural gas.
“NGV Global Group, Inc. designs, manufactures, distributes and supports natural gas-operated medium-and heavy-duty commercial vehicles sold worldwide,” said Dimitri Tisnoi, Chief Operating Officer at NGV Global Group.
Initially starting as NGV Texas Inc., the company was founded over 10 years ago by Fury Zaidi. They began converting light-duty vehicles to natural gas, which has flourished, into serving medium to heavy-duty vehicles. In addition, they now bulk deliver natural gas, compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas and other gases in high-pressure trailers. With their growth, they expanded into a new 90,000 square foot conversion and manufacturing facility in Dallas and are serving government agencies, municipalities, large trucking companies and oil and gas companies.
Tisnoi believes that natural gas for transportation and off-road use will expand substantially in the coming years and NGV Global Group can help others decrease the waste of natural gas, (flare gas, landfills, and more) and increase the utilization for transportation and energy production.
“Given product portfolio, high volume capabilities, global footprint, and deep expertise across medium-duty and high-duty applications, NGV Global is well-positioned to benefit from this shift. Also, the market for mobile natural gas delivery services, also known as ‘Virtual Pipeline,’ creates great expansion opportunities for NGV Global Group,” said Tisnoi.
NGV Global group strives to be present in their community so that they can educate and help people understand the benefits of natural gas. If more people are aware of the positive effects of natural gas, as a fuel, Tisnoi said it can “significantly benefit the environment, local economy, and energy independence.”
