Worldwide Power Products Announces Partnership with Hythane Company to Offer OptiBlend Bi-Fuel Solution for Diesel Engines

June 11, 2013

Worldwide Power Products (WPP), a power-generated equipment provider to industrial clients worldwide, announce it has licensed the rights to sell Hythane's OptiBlend solution, which enables traditional diesel engines to burn a mixture of natural gas and diesel. WPP will offer OptiBlend-equipped diesel engines and generator sets for sale and rental and will also sell retrofitting services to owners of existing diesel generators. WPP's service technicians will be certified to install the conversion kits both at the WWP facility and in the field.

With OptiBlend, standard diesel engines can burn a mixture of up to 70% natural gas and 30% diesel fuel. At the current price of natural gas, the cost of the retrofit can be recaptured in fuel savings in less than a year.

OptiBlend-equipped engines can use fuel from a variety of sources, including direct intake of by-product natural gas from oil fields and well heads (with pre-treatment), from a traditional gas pipeline, or from vaporized LNG (liquid natural gas).
