US companies Reviva and Hoglund Bus Company have launched a remanufactured drop-in gas engine programme. Reviva will make the product while Hoglund will distribute it to fleet and bus customers.
Reviva will carry out the reman at its facility in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, and says that UPS has already saved 36,000 hours per year in downtime through using its dropin ready engines. Duane Wanner, general manager, Reviva Gas Engine Division, said: “We are being very selective as we add a small number of distributors in the US.” Jim Gruber, Hoglund general manager, says it would be offering customers increased uptime, reduced downtime and optimised engine maintenance.
“Reviva’s dynotested drop-in remanufactured gas engines are unique in the market,” he claimed. Reviva is a 70-year old, family owned company which says it is the largest independently owned diesel engine remanufacturer in North America.
