VANCOUVER, B.C. — Cummins Westport’s 10,000th ISL G natural gas engine has rolled off the production line at the Cummins Engine Plant in Rocky Mount, N.C. (RMEP). Cummins Westport ISL G engines are sold globally in a variety of applications including vocational, and medium- and heavy-duty truck and tractor applications.
“The Cummins Westport ISL G natural gas engine has logged millions of miles/kilometers of superior performance for operators on four continents,” said Roe East, CWI president. “We will continue to leverage the success of the proven technology CWI first introduced in the ISL G to develop future high-performance natural gas engine products.”
Since the launch of the ISL G four years ago, 10,000 engines have been produced at the RMEP – making the ISL G the largest single automotive natural gas engine production in Cummins history. Along with the ISL G production milestone, the RMEP also reached the 30,000 total natural gas engines production mark in June.
The ISL G is able to operate on compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas, renewable natural gas or Biomethane. Natural gas is an abundant, cost effective, low carbon and low emissions fuel. The ISL G does not require selective catalytic reduction (SCR) or a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
