The 120 gallon or 150 gallon single-tank systems can run for approximately 350 to 450 miles, respectively, on cold (unsaturated) LNG fuel. Those ranges double for dual-tank configurations. In addition, the Westport™ LNG tank system features fuel-flexibility with the ability to carry both cold and warm LNG.
Compared to existing compressed natural gas (CNG) options, a single 150 gallon system takes the place of three standard CNG tanks, lowering fuel storage costs and reducing overall vehicle weight by approximately 600 lbs. Customers receive a two year/250,000 mile warranty along with access to field service from Westport-trained personnel.
“Thanks to the flexibility and range of the Westport LNG Tank System, fleet operators can now use the same cold LNG and technology across their fleet in a range of vehicle and engine sizes,” added Anderson.
