Westport Innovations Receives Largest Non-Port Order

Posted on June 5, 2008

Westport Innovations Inc. has received an order from feed producer HayDay Farms, Blythe, Calif., for 20 heavy-duty LNG trucks featuring its Westport's High Pressure Direct Injection (HPDI) technology. The order marks the largest non-port related order to date for the company.

Westport’s HPDI technology will be installed in new Kenworth T800 trucks, equipped with 15 L ISX G engines. HayDay Farms will use the trucks for regional haul applications and said it expects the LNG trucks to have reduced fuel costs and lower exhaust emissions.

The Westport HPDI system comprises LNG fuel tanks, proprietary Westport fuel injectors, cryogenic fuel pumps and associated electronic components. The system is 2007 EPA and CARB certified.
