Brussels, Belgium; and Vancouver, British Columbia (PRESS RELEASE) — Today in Brussels, Westport Fuel Systems Inc. (“Westport” or the “Company”) (TSX: WPRT/Nasdaq: WPRT), a global leader in low-emission alternative fuel transportation technologies, unveiled its new H2 HPDITM fuel system for heavy-duty vehicles, which is expected to significantly reduce CO2 emissions in line with EU decarbonization goals, in front of policymakers and industry representatives. Westport’s hydrogen solution saves more energy while still working with engines and manufacturing equipment that are already in use.
This remark comes at a key time for Europe as it seeks to meet its decarbonization objectives in all sectors, including the road transportation sector. The goal of showing off Westport’s new technology today is to show how hydrogen can be used in the transportation industry.
Superior Productivity and Technological Tenacity
- Long-haul heavy-duty vehicles with hydrogen engines and Westport’s H2 HPDI fuel system work very well and are very efficient across the entire power range.
- It has roughly 20% more horsepower, 15% more torque, and 10% higher efficiency than diesel.
- Near-zero CO2 emissions
- Continuity with existing technologies expedites implementation.
- resemblance to existing manufacturing assets
- CO2 reduction at a cheaper price than fuel cell vehicles.
The Decarbonization of Heavy-Duty Transport in Europe
Our method achieves higher performance than diesel engines while releasing almost no carbon dioxide. Utilizing the efficiency potential of hydrogen, according to David Johnson, CEO of Westport Fuel Systems, H2 HPDI fuel systems result in cost-effective CO2 reductions for fleets and society. Therefore, we anticipate that the Commission and the Member States will prioritize the availability of green hydrogen for the transportation sector in the next few years and advance engine technology, which will be crucial for the expansion of the entire hydrogen transportation market.
Promoting Innovation for a Greener Future
Westport’s mission is to ignite innovation toward a cleaner future. The hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engines that use Westport’s H2 HPDI fuel system deliver the high performance required by commercial fleets that now use its biomethane HPDI fuel system. Westport thinks that the H2 HPDI technology that was announced today will help the European industry reach the CO2 reduction goals set for 2030 and beyond. This will give heavy-duty vehicles in Europe a better future because of Westport’s knowledge and experience.
