VANCOUVER, BC – Cummins Westport Inc. (“CWI”), a leading provider of high-performance, alternative fuel engines for the global market, announced today that the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System “San Diego MTS” has ordered 250 CWI ISL G engines to be installed in New Flyer, 40-foot, low-floor vehicles.
“San Diego MTS is a repeat customer, has significantly increased its natural gas engine fleet with this order and continues to be a strong advocate for lower emissions,” said Gordon Exel, CWI’s Vice President and General Manager, Americas. “These new engines will help San Diego MTS to operate one of the cleanest available transit engines. Additionally, the combination of low emission natural gas technology in the CWI ISL G and Cummins’ customer support will provide San Diego MTS with robust products and exceptional service.”
The ISL G surpasses EPA 2007 phase-in levels and meets 2010 emission standards of 0.2 g/bhp-hr (grams per brake horsepower hour) NOx (nitrogen oxide) and 0.01 g/bhp-hr PM (particulate matter). Based on the Cummins ISL, the ISL G leverages Cummins’ proven cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (“EGR”) with stoichiometric combustion allowing for the use of a three way catalyst, which is maintenance free and is in common use in passenger cars. In addition to delivering ultra-low emissions, the ISL G, with ratings from 250 to 320 horsepower, will deliver increased thermal efficiency and over 30% higher low-speed torque compared with today’s CWI “Plus” engines. CWI has already logged significant orders for the ISL G from U.S. transit properties, including Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority, Sacramento Regional Transit and the Orange County Transportation Authority.
