Cummins Westport Inc. has introduced “The Natural Gas Playbook” website to provide new and existing natural gas customers with guidance on evaluating and operating Cummins Westport-powered natural gas vehicles (NGVs).
According to the company, the five-step Natural Gas Playbook features information and tips on how to assess, specify, prepare, implement and operate/maintain a Cummins Westport-powered NGV fleet.
The website provides information to users who have questions about operating NGVs, addressing what natural gas is, how it can reduce fleet emissions, how natural gas engines work, how customers can calculate the emission reductions with natural gas and much more. As reported, it also answers questions concerning zero-carbon renewable fuels.
In addition to tips and tools about Cummins Westport Inc. products, the website also provides the opportunity to connect with Cummins and Cummins Westport experts to answer questions and support the adoption of natural gas into truck, refuse, school bus and transit applications.
According to the company, the playbook offers two new calculators to assist customers: a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Calculator and a Payback Calculator.
The GHG calculator is based on three published North American Well-to-Wheel (WTW) GHG Models: GREET, GREET California and GHGenius. It provides the carbon-dioxide equivalent WTW emission reductions possible with the use of natural gas or renewable natural gas in a variety of applications.
The Payback Calculator is a tool to calculate fuel savings, average fleet speed, service intervals and fuel system capacity requirements.
