During the honoring, Eng. / Abdelfattah Farahat praised the research presented by Eng./ Diaa Ghoneim and its importance in contributing to the development of technology for converting vehicles to run by CNG, stressing that the necessary measures are taken by the Company to achieve maximum benefit from the results of this study in covering the needs of the Company and its sister companies in NGV field.
During the ceremony, Eng./ Diaa presented a presentation of his research summary on the design, manufacture and testing of a number of components for converting vehicles to run by CNG, which are imported from abroad: a deceptive device for 4-cylinder gasoline injectors - a deceptive device for 6-cylinder gasoline injectors - an oxygen sensor deceptive device - a key converting carburetors - converting switch for injection vehicles - spark advance device for Mitsubishi vehicles.
According to the presented research, Eng./ Diaa was able to design and manufacture a number of components of conversion kits used in the process of converting vehicles to run by CNG, with the same functions as the imported components, with a significant difference in price.

It is planned that the use of these components as a substitute for their imported counterparts will contribute to the provision of foreign exchange destined for the import of these equipment, and cover the needs of the Egyptian market in the technology of converting vehicles to run by CNG, as well as the development of the national industry and the localization of technology, which is in line with the strategy of the petroleum sector and Egypt’s vision 2030.
