VANCOUVER, B.C. — Westport Innovations has agreed to supply Volvo with its natural gas fuel system for heavy-duty engines.
“High energy efficiency and low emissions of greenhouse gases are a key focus for our strategic development efforts as natural gas and its renewable fuels counterpart, biogas, quickly become the mainstream alternative fuel choice for heavy-duty engines,” said David Demers, CEO of Westport Innovations. “We are excited to be working together with a global leader who recognizes the importance of both performance and environmental stewardship.”
Westport and Volvo first agreed to work together in July 2008 when they signed a deal to integrate and test Westport’s HD system on Volvo engines. Under the new agreement, the two companies will share program development expenses and work together to achieve development milestones.
