Navistar extended its engine supply agreement with Power Solutions International Inc. (PSI) through 2021.

Navistar produces International brand commercial and military trucks, proprietary diesel engines and IC Bus brand school and commercial buses. The agreement between Navistar and PSI covers PSI’s supply of 8.8-liter propane and gasoline engines for IC Bus.

According to PSI, the agreement was originally set to run through 2018.

“We’re very excited that Navistar has chosen to extend our supply agreement well into the future,” says Gary Winemaster, PSI chairman and CEO. “We look forward to a long and successful partnership as bus fleets and local school districts continue to embrace the growing market trend toward alternatives to diesel engines.”

Navistar began its partnership with PSI in 2014 to expand its IC Bus product line with alternative fuel offerings to meet the growing market demand, PSI says. IC Bus launched its PSI-powered CE Series Type C propane school bus in November 2014.

According to PSI, a number of  deliveries of the IC Bus propane school bus have been made, including 149 buses to Waterbury Public Schools in Waterbury, Connecticut; 100 buses to Indianapolis Public Schools in Indianapolis; and 63 to Tuscaloosa City Schools in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
