Phoenix converts one of biggest taxi fleets in Iloilo to auto LPG
Phoenix LPG Philippines, Inc., a subsidiary company of Phoenix Petroleum Philippines, Inc. (Phoenix), engaged in the selling and distribution of LPG products and services, is converting over 200 registered fuel-powered vehicles operating all over Iloilo City and nearby provinces to auto gas-powered cars after the company signed a conversion deal with GDR Taxi, which has one of the biggest taxi fleets in the region.
Aiming to provide a cleaner and affordable alternative to fuel, Phoenix LPG partnered with Clean Vehicle Solutions Limited (CLEVA)—a Hong Kong-based company that specializes in fuel delivery, installation, and maintenance of LPG equipment—to use its Prins Technology for the auto LPG conversion project with GDR Taxi.
Phoenix has, so far, converted 48 out of the 215 GDR taxi units into auto LPG-powered vehicles and is expected to complete the project by the first quarter of 2020. These taxis are the pilot batch of the auto LPG conversion project of Phoenix LPG using the new technology.
“To complement our credible and efficient Phoenix SUPER LPG for home cooking, we are extending our brand’s offering to motorists through Phoenix Auto LPG, our very own clean-burning and high-octane green fuel. Since it is more affordable, readily available, and portable, auto LPG is the most viable and credible alternative to the conventional fuels we use today,” Phoenix Petroleum Chief Operating Officer Henry Albert Fadullon said.
Aside from the conversion kit, Phoenix also provides spare parts, product warranty, and technical training and support to GDR Taxi.
The collaboration between Phoenix Petroleum and CLEVA aims to provide fleet operators with a quality auto LPG product and world-class converter technology, producing a better and more rewarding business operation. The company is also set to expand its auto LPG conversion project to other key cities in the country in the coming year.
