One Mission Accomplished, Clean Energy Looks to Core Business;
Westport Boosts Light Duty Upfit Business That’s Exclusively Its Own

Clean Energy Fuels purchased BAF Technologies in autumn 2009 to ensure that BAF could handle an historic CNG upfit job it had undertaken for AT&T. BAF has now converted more than 3,000 Ford vehicles for the telcom – out of more than 20,000 overall – and Clean Energy is turning its attention to its core business of providing natural gas fuel.

Westport Innovations, meanwhile, is perhaps best known for its Westport HD system for Class 8 trucks built around the 15-liter Cummins ISX, but shipped only three during the first quarter (by contrast, the Cummins Westport, Inc. joint venture for spark-ignition natural gas engines shipped 1,313 units during the quarter).
