OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada, January 8, 2002 (ENS) - The Canadian government is betting a million dollars that a low emissions natural gas engine can generate the fuel economy and performance of a diesel engine for stationary electric power generation.

Westport Innovations Inc. of Vancouver will receive a C$1 million repayable contribution from the government of Canada to demonstrate the power of its natural gas generator.

Westport, through its joint venture Cummins Westport Inc., will install a 1.6 megawatt power generator, equipped with Westport's patented natural gas fuel system, at a water/wastewater treatment facility in Grande Prairie, Alberta early this year
