“The expansion of our advanced natural gas technology collaboration with GM provides the potential for greater fuel efficiency and reduced greenhouse gas emissions for the industry and the consumer,” said Ian Scott, President of Westport Light Duty. “Our continued growth in light-duty is an important part of Westport’s overall commitment to innovative natural gas transportation solutions.”
In turn, Westport Light Duty has recently opened an assembly center in Louisville, Kentucky, to support its partnerships with global automotive manufacturers. The Westport Kentucky Integration Center will be home to the new Westport™ WiNG Power System for Ford pickup trucks and will be capable of installing up to 20,000 systems per year.
