Westport Innovations, engineering advanced natural gas engines and vehicles, has received an order from Universal LNG Solutions (ULNG) for 900 Westport iCE PACK™ liquefied natural gas (LNG) Tank Systems to be delivered over the next two years.
“This investment by ULNG confirms the industry’s interest in the Westport iCE PACK™ and the demand for cold LNG,” said Steve Anderson, vice president of Business Development at Westport. “This purchase order will allow ULNG to provide not only fuel flexibility, but provide their fleets with a consistent, high-performance LNG fuel system across a range of vehicles and engines.”
The Westport iCE PACK™ is an onboard LNG tank system customised for spark-ignited engines. The system is designed to meet the demands of trucking fleets by providing increased range, longer hold times and quicker fuelling times. Westport expects to begin shipping to ULNG by the end of 2013.
“The availability of iCE PACK™ gives ULNG the ability to offer our customers a package solution with dedicated infrastructure, LNG fuel and vehicle LNG fuel systems,” said Jeffrey Liu, CEO of ULNG. “The Westport iCE PACK™ system with cold LNG will give our customers better payback and productivity through faster fuelling, longer range, and increased hold times.”
