Ford Designates BAF Technologies as Qualified CNG Converter

February 08, 2011

SEAL BEACH, CA - Clean Energy Fuels Corp. announced that its subsidiary, BAF Technologies, has been officially designated by the Ford Motor Co. as a Ford-qualified vehicle modifier (QVM) for gaseous-fueled vehicles. 

BAF's alternative fuel vehicle upfitting capabilities include aftermarket compressed natural gas (CNG) conversions of Ford-manufactured vans, cutaway shuttles, taxis, pick-ups and light-duty trucks.

"We are very proud to have earned this special designation from Ford," said John Bacon, president of BAF Technologies.

To ensure that modified Ford vehicles meet strict vehicle warranty and QVM standards, the authorization program focuses on the aftermarket vendor's design, manufacturing and quality control processes. In-depth evaluations by Ford include crash testing, demonstrated commitment to continuous quality improvement, and reviews of representative vehicles and customer support systems.

BAF Technologies is a major provider of natural gas vehicle systems and conversions in the United States and supports clients with alternative fuel systems. Founded in 1992 and headquartered in Dallas, Texas, BAF was acquired by Clean Energy in October 2009.

The company's aftermarket systems help ensure that current natural gas vehicles (NGVs) are available for domestic light-duty fleets. Its vehicle conversions include taxis, vans, pick-up trucks and shuttle buses. BAF uses advanced natural gas system integration technology and has certified NGVs under both EPA and CARB standards.

Clean Energy is the largest provider of natural gas fuel for transportation in North America and a global leader in the expanding natural gas vehicle market. It has operations in CNG and LNG vehicle fueling, construction and operation of CNG and LNG fueling stations, biomethane production, vehicle conversion and compressor technology.
