Westport Staging Natural Gas Now Mini-Conference

Westport Innovations is hosting a Natural Gas Now mini-conference on the afternoon of March 19 – just prior to MATS, the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky.

Westport LD'€™s WKIC --€“ the Westport Kentucky Integration Center, integrated with the Ford assembly plant in Louisville, formally opened its doors on June 26.

“Learn from both customers and suppliers why the range of options – from pick-up trucks to locomotives – and benefits of natural gas are greater than ever before,” Westport says.

Natural Gas Now will be held at WKIC, the Westport Kentucky Integration Center, where the company converts Ford F-250 through F-550 trucks for compressed natural gas operation. WKIC is adjacent to Ford’s Louisville assembly plant, making for easy ship-through of the Westport NGVs.

Westport LD showed this Ford F-350 with ‘Pup’ brand side-loader by Iowa's Wayne Engineering at the 2013 Work Truck Show in Indianapolis last week.
