Cummins Westport obtains engine development funds

Posted on July 22, 2002

Cummins Westport Inc. has obtained an agreement for approximately $250,000 in development funding for the B Gas Plus natural gas engine. The funding, from the Gas Technology Institute of Des Plaines, Ill., covers a portion of development costs. Cummins Westport expects to introduce the B Gas Plus in September to replace the B5.9G engine, which has been in production since 1994. The 5.9-liter B Gas Plus will be equipped with new electronics and sensors that can accommodate for and adjust instantly to variations in fuel composition. With up to 230 horsepower, the B Gas Plus will be targeted at urban bus and truck fleets. The new engine will be manufactured at the Cummins engine plant in Rocky Mount, N.C.
