Westport Innovations Inc. and Pioneer Natural Resources have announced that Pioneer is adding 225 bi-fuel Westport WiNG natural-gas-powered Ford F250 Super Duty trucks to its fleet.
‘Our team at Pioneer has been driving the WiNG-powered Ford F250s since they first became available earlier this year, and we've been impressed with the simple order process, delivery times, product and the company,’ says Lynn Lyon, manager of strategic projects.
Pioneer has begun transitioning a number of its fleet vehicles from gasoline and diesel to compressed natural gas for light-duty applications and liquefied natural gas for heavy-duty applications.
Westport recently opened the Westport Kentucky Integration Center in Louisville, where the natural gas WiNG systems are installed on Ford F250 and F350 bi-fuel pickup trucks. With the ability to run on either natural gas or gasoline, the Ford trucks offer drivers more than 650 miles of range with two full tanks, according to Westport.
