  • Westport Signs Second Agreement with GM for LD Engineering Development

    On Thursday, Westport Innovations announced that it has entered into an additional agreement with General Motors for a second advanced technology development program. Westport and GM are now developing two different combustion, controls and emissions approaches to natural gas engines (the first cooperative technology project was announced in June 2011). This new program will optimize advanced natural gas technologies and applications for maximum CO2 reduction and fuel efficiency in light-duty vehicles. To support OEM programs that will enable personal and commercial vehicles to run on natural gas, Westport Light Duty has recently established The Michigan Technical Center in Plymouth, and has opened an assembly centre in Louisville, Kentucky.

    I still hope to see turbochargers being more used in CNG engines. Considering that Westport already has some expertise in the forced induction field due to the Cummins-Westport engines, could apply its knowledge in lighter engines too...
