In 2007, founder of MP&ES David Wilkerson began the design of a new line of single and multi gen-set locomotives, focused on environment, ease of maintenance, being more operator friendly and having less down time. The company sold the first fleet of the new MP900C-BB locomotives to one of the world’s largest nickel mines, located in Africa. The fleet provided superior service and the customer has continued to purchase additional locomotives to grow its fleet. International sales to a wide array of customers on four continents now constitute half of the MP&ES business volume.
The company, with key partners, has developed a design for a dual fuel (natural gas and diesel) genset locomotive product line that the company hopes will reduce fuel costs by replacing diesel fuel with domestically sourced, compressed natural gas (CNG).
US-based locomotive provider Motive Power & Equipment Solutions (MP&ES) has launched the Greenville TM MP1500, a new ultra-low emissions, Gen-Set locomotive powered by a combination of natural gas and diesel fuels. 17 U.S. Code § 107 fair use
