Westport Completes HPDI Technology Program with Daimler AG
Westport Innovations 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 and resulted in a payment of approximately $2.7 million by Daimler to Westport.
Westport HPDI 2.0 natural gas technology is capable of delivering performance and fuel economy equivalent to that of current high performance diesel-fueled engines, but with diesel substitution of over 90 percent. 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.
