Kenworth wins alternative fuel award

While not specific to Australia it is good to know that truck manufacturers are being recognised for their efforts to develop cleaner and greener alternatives. Kenworth has won the Industry Innovation Award for alternative fuel trucks at the Alternative Fuels & Vehicle National Conference and Expo held last week in Anaheim, California.

The award recognises their T800s which are equipped with Westport Innovations’ LNG fuel system that runs primarily on liquefied natural gas and is installed on the Cummins 15-liter engine. Kenworth’s current environmental efforts also include the new Kenworth Clean Power™ no-idle system, which enters into production this summer, and the new Kenworth T270 Class 6 hybrid truck which was displayed at the conference.
