Heavy-duty trucking customers seeking optimal on-board fuel storage, high-performance natural gas engines, and reliable fueling can benefit from a new joint marketing program by Westport Innovations Inc. and Clean Energy Fuels Corp. Both of these alternative fuel transportation companies jointly made the announcement in Louisville at the Mid-America Truck Show. The companies are marketing the benefits of their alliance to fleets, including an attractive payback to customers using the Cummins Wesport ISL G or ISX12 G engine with a Westport LNG Tank System; availability of long-term refueling contracts at a savings to diesel for Clean Energy customers; and establishing a strong market for natural gas trucks with additional conveniently located liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling stations for customers.
To encourage the use of natural gas vehicles and the establishment of the growing fueling infrastructure across North America, the companies will bundle the Westport LNG Tank System – optimized for use with the Cummins Westport ISL G or the new Cummins Westport ISX12 G engines – and a long-term fuel contract with Clean Energy into a package for qualified customers.
