Allied Specialty Vehicles announces 2 alt-fuel partnerships

Posted on April 24, 2015

Allied Specialty Vehicles (ASV) announced separate exclusive partnerships with CleanFUEL USA and Westport.

Under the partnership with CleanFUEL USA, the company will provide products and services to expand ASV’s line of alternative fuel vehicles, namely propane autogas.

Meanwhile, the Westport partnership will expand the availability of the compressed natural gas (CNG) Westport WING Power System currently offered as an option on ASV’s Type A school buses manufactured by Collins Bus, to the company’s commercial bus, emergency and other vehicle products.

The partnership agreement calls for CleanFUEL USA’s propane autogas systems currently installed by third-party upfitters to be transitioned to ASV factory-certified installations.

Tim Sullivan, ASV president/CEO, said this change will not only offer customers a full OEM warranty, but it will increase installation efficiency and improve overall quality control. The two companies will also work together to develop customer service centers that will offer spare parts and maintenance services for a full-suite of CleanFUEL USA propane autogas systems for multiple ASV product lines and their customers.

Meanwhile, the Westport WING Power System is a dedicated natural gas fuel system for light-duty specialty vehicles built on Ford truck chassis and backed by a Ford factory three-year/36,000-mile engine and powertrain warranty.

As the leading CNG Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM), Westport designed its system to meet Ford’s OEM standards. Westport also conducts rigorous OEM-approved safety testing including extensive simulations and physical crash testing that meets or exceeds OEM and U.S. federal safety standards.

Westport’s WING systems are primarily installed in Dallas; however, the systems will be transitioned to ASV factory-certified installations to increase vehicle manufacturing efficiency.
