“This investment by ULNG confirms the industry’s interest in our iCE PACK and the demand for cold liquefied natural gas,” said Steve Anderson, Vice President, Business Development, 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 900 Westport systems will be delivered over the next two years and the company expects to begin shipping to ULNG in the fourth quarter of 2013.
“The availability of iCE PACK gives us 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.”
