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.
“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.
The Natural Gas Now keynote speakers are
- Lynn Lyon, director of fuel market development with Pioneer Natural Resources – a major Westport LD fleet customer with 225 trucks (F&F, August 6);
- Jim Harger, chief marketing officer with Clean Energy Fuels;
- Ian Scott, Westport executive VP; and
- David Demers, Westport CEO.
Westport recently announced that will begin taking orders on April 1 for its Westport WiNG brand bi-fuel CNG-gasoline conversions of Ford F-450 and F-550 Super Duty Chassis Cab trucks (F&F, March 1).
The Mid-America Trucking Show takes place March 21-23 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.
