Specifically developed for spark ignited, dedicated natural gas engine applications
The Westport WP580 Engine Management System (EMS) is a highly configurable system that has been specifically developed for spark ignited, dedicated natural gas engine applications and can be integrated with a wide range of proprietary Westport fuel system components for flexible vehicle design and production. Its advanced combustion control technology can optimize the engine for class leading fuel economy, torque, and power while meeting existing and future emissions and onboard diagnostic requirements. Westport has also set a new benchmark with the WP580, with industry leading price performance and value, allowing natural gas vehicles to be competitively priced with petroleum-based vehicles.
In 2014, Westport and Tata Motors Limited, India's largest automobile company, launched a new spark-ignited (SI) natural gas 3.8L turbocharged engine featuring the Westport WP580 EMS. Designed to support many engine configurations, the Westport WP580 EMS is also scheduled to be applied to Tata's 5.7L engine targeting medium-duty applications in late 2014.
Working with GAZ Group, the leader of the Russian commercial vehicles market, Westport is designing and developing spark ignited natural gas systems for a new range of compressed natural gas (CNG) commercial vehicles. Westport's new WP580 Engine Management System will be applied to GAZ's YaMZ-530 4.4L and 6.6L diesel engines and will incorporate Westport proprietary components and technology in the development of new compressed natural gas engines for CNG commercial, road construction and agro vehicles. The first products will be introduced in commercial production in 2014.
