As part of its evaluation process, Trans-West conducted independent, third party fuel efficiency testing through Canada’s PIT Group, an esteemed transportation technology testing organization.
“For any fuel-saving technology that we consider, we first look to see if the device has been tested by the PIT Group,” said André Boisvert, Vice President of Technology and Development at Groupe Trans-West. “Since the group had not tested the device before, we coordinated with them to run the test. We were pleasantly surprised when the fuel savings results from the third party testing we did were aligned with the fuel savings that FlowBelow claimed, which helped to make the decision to retrofit our entire fleet an easy one.”
