In a separate announcement, CWI today announced the commercial launch of a new 12 litre natural gas engine based on the successful Cummins ISX12 diesel platform.

The new ISX12 G is currently in field trials with production expected to commence in early 2013. CWI will market this new engine in North America, and Cummins will have the option of developing international versions of this new engine for markets outside North America. The new engine will be manufactured in Cummins' Jamestown, New York Engine Plant.
