- Decker Coal Company Clean Haul Truck Engine Repower Workplan
The Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) was awarded a National Clean Diesel Funding Assistance Program Grant to fund a repower project in partnership with Decker Coal Company targeting four coal hauling and dump truck engines. The general purpose of the grant is to reduce diesel emissions and improve air quality. A $700,000 diesel engine repower project on Decker Coal haul trucks is underway. Two energy efficient engines have been fitted on haul trucks at a cost of $175,000 per unit. The old engines have been rendered unfit for use. Two more engines will be fitted during the grant period, also at $175,000 per unit.
