Westport’s HPDI fuel system allows heavy trucks to deliver power and torque with significantly reduced CO.2 emissions
- Unchanged Game Changer: Westport’s H2HPDI Fuel System Breathes New Life into Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs)
Westport displays that H.2Demonstration truck with HPDI fuel system at IAA Transportation 2022 in Hannover, Germany, September 20-25, 2022
VANCOUVER, BC & HANNOVER, GERMANY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Westport Fuel Systems Inc. (“westport” or “Company) (TSX: WPRT / Nasdaq: WPRT) today announced the new H.2 HPDI fuel system. For the first time in Europe, Westport displays its H.2 Demonstration truck with HPDI fuel system at IAA Transportation 2022 in Hannover, Germany, September 20-25, 2022. More information is available at our Westport booth, Hall H12, Stand B70.
H.2 HPDI is designed for use in internal combustion engines. When fueled with hydrogen, the system offers more power and torque than diesel, while significantly reducing emissions. His H in Westport2 The HPDI fuel system has the following advantages:
- Up to 20% more power than diesel
- Up to 18% higher torque than diesel
- Near-zero CO2 emissions
- Retains existing diesel engine architecture
- Maintain existing engine manufacturing infrastructure and investments
- Minimum cost to achieve CO2 compliance
“Today we present to the European audience the new CO2 A saving solution for heavy goods transport. H of Westport2 The HPDI™ fuel system that powers internal combustion engines is extremely proud to turn innovation into an answer and create sustainability. ” David Johnson, CEO, Westport Fuel Systems“We like to think of it as a static game changer. Our technology delivers better performance than diesel engines and almost zero CO.”2 Reduce emissions while leveraging all existing manufacturing capital investments and infrastructure. “
Decarbonization of Europe
The European Union has set a 2050 deadline to reach its goal of becoming carbon neutral, and hydrogen fuels in the heavy duty vehicle sector are expected to play a key role in this decarbonization strategy. . According to European Commission data, about 20% of all future transport fuels will come from H.2 A further 20% consist of H-derived low-carbon synthetic fuels.2.
H of Westport2 HPDI fuel systems offer a cost-effective solution for near-zero CO2 emissions. OEMs can continue to use existing internal combustion engines powered by hydrogen, leveraging investments in vehicle drivetrain design, supply chain and manufacturing. Engines equipped with this fuel system perform better compared to spark ignition H.2 ICE systems and diesel engines, including increased efficiency and power density, and reduced operating costs. In heavy duty cycles, H2 HPDI fuel systems are expected to meet or exceed the performance and efficiency offered by fuel cells.
Less Investment, Better Performance: A Game Changer, No Change
H.2 HPDI leverages existing manufacturing infrastructure. This is a key factor in the short-term adoption of sustainability solutions. Minimizing public and private investment on the road to decarbonization is a key component of Westport’s ability to quickly achieve real change. This allows OEMs to make significant changes to their products, benefiting the industry and the environment.
HPDI is already running on the road
Westport’s Mission Driving innovation for a cleaner tomorrow. Hydrogen-powered H2 HPDI leverages Westport’s experience with LNG HPDI fuel systems to deliver greater performance gains on the road today.
Westport’s LNG HPDI fuel system offers OEMs the flexibility to easily differentiate their natural gas and biogas product lines while maintaining full commonality with their traditional engine and powertrain lines. Fueled by 60% natural gas with 40% biogas, the engine with the LNG HPDI fuel system delivers the same lifecycle CO2.2 Reduction as a fuel cell using a blue/green hydrogen blend. You can also net zero well-to-wheel CO.2 It uses 100% biogas, which is becoming the primary fuel for LNG trucks in much of Europe.
