Worldwide Power Products (WPP), a power-generation equipment provider to industrial clients worldwide, announced it has licensed the rights to sell Hythane Company'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.
