BAF Technologies acquires ServoTech

By Greentech Lead America: BAF Technologies, a wholly
owned subsidiary of Clean Energy Fuels, has acquired ServoTech Engineering, an
auto emissions solutions provider. ServoTech is a Ford Qualified Calibration
Modifier (QCM) and it has direct access to the Ford engine calibration

The acquisition is expected to help BAF speed production
and delivery of EPA and CARB standards-compliant CNG vehicle conversions.

BAF recently produced its 20,000th compressed natural gas
vehicle conversion. BAF is the first CNG
converter to be recognized as a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) for
gaseous fuels. Each vehicle converted by BAF is registered through Ford Quality
Fleet Care (QFC) for all warranty and service work.

Hamid Servati, ServoTech’s current president, will
continue to lead the new BAF subsidiary’s operations. Currently, BAF has nine
different engine families that were developed with ServoTech.

“ServoTech’s long-term relationship with Ford will
support BAF in developing calibrations more efficiently going forward. We
expect this will enable BAF to have CARB-and EPA-approved vehicles on the road
faster than ever,” said John Bacon, BAF president.

ServoTech provides auto emission solutions to the OEM and
vehicle retrofit/aftermarket industry. The company offers research, development
and testing services, manufacturing capabilities, software design and
development, engine management systems and technical training and education.

 ServoTech also designs and manufactures emissions
control systems for engine test cells, including a NOx controller, catalytic
converters, and electronic controls.

CNG is more economical than diesel and
gasoline fuels and provides a reduction in greenhouse emissions. The use of
natural gas fuels reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 30 percent in
light-duty vehicles. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that 98 percent of
the natural gas consumed in the U.S. is sourced in the U.S. and Canada, making
natural gas a secure North American energy choice.
