published: July 9, 2015
VANCOUVER, BC – Westport Innovations Inc. (TSX:WPT / NASDAQ:WPRT), engineering the world's most advanced natural gas engines and vehicles, announced today that it has completed an engineering program with Daimler AG to develop and assess Westport High Pressure Direct Injection (HPDI) system for a Daimler heavy duty engine. The prototype HPDI engine met all technical targets resulting in a payment of 2.4 million Euro (approximately $2.7 million USD) by Daimler to Westport. For competitive reasons, further terms of the program have not been disclosed.
Westport™ HPDI 2.0 is the only natural gas technology capable of delivering performance and fuel economy equivalent to that of current high performance diesel-fueled engines, but with diesel substitution of over 90%. This combination of high performance and high efficiency is critical for heavy-duty engines in demanding commercial applications. In addition to delivering performance and fuel economy, Westport™ HPDI 2.0 is designed to meet the latest in stringent emission regulations, including Euro VI and EPA 2014.
