Allied Specialty Vehicles Takes CNG Beyond Its Collins School Buses
Orlando, Fla.-based Allied Specialty Vehicles reports an exclusive partnership with Westport allowing Westport WiNG equipment for compressed natural gas to be offered beyond ASV’s Collins Bus school vehicles.
In addition to the Type A school buses now available, commercial buses and emergency vehicles from Collins ASV’s numerous divisions will now be available with Westport WiNG CNG fuel systems.
“Our customers are demanding environmentally friendly vehicles,” ASV president and CEO Tim Sullivan said in a release.
A ‘Factory-Certified OEM Solution’
“The ability to expand the availability of the Westport CNG system to other ASV vehicle lines not only demonstrates our commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability but it also allows us to offer the first factory-certified OEM solution for one-stop installations of alternative fuel systems,” Sullivan said.
ASV earlier this month announced availability of propane autogas operation for its vehicles, using CleanFuel USA equipment (F&F, April 14).
“We’re excited to offer a CNG-powered product across multiple ASV vehicle platforms,” Westport Dallas VP Paul Shaffer says in the ASV announcement.
Westport will continue to perform Ford vehicle upfits at Dallas, Shaffer told F&F.
