Westport signs €38-million deal to supply Autogas systems to leading OEM
Westport Fuel Systems Inc. announced it has been awarded a programme to develop and supply LPG systems for a number of vehicle applications for a global original equipment manufacturer (OEM). The deal is forecasted to provide €38 million in revenue through the end of 2025, with production expected to begin in Q4 2023.
Westport will provide fuel systems solutions for the Euro 6 applications to this OEM, supplying the entire Autogas system from the fuel tank to the fuel injectors. In parallel, Westport is also developing fuel systems to respond to future regulations including the proposed Euro 7 standards. Driving alternative fuel technology adoption from light-duty to heavy-duty applications is a keystone of Westport’s OEM technology supply strategy.
“We are proud to supply this industry leading OEM and to serve the growing global market for affordable alternative fuel systems,” said David M. Johnson, CEO of Westport Fuel Systems. “Our proven clean technology solutions support energy security and sustainability, by providing affordable, low carbon fuel options for transportation.”
LPG-powered vehicles are a cost-competitive low-emissions alternative to vehicles that use petrol or diesel, and the technology satisfies stringent regulatory requirements for emissions reductions. They are permitted to drive in emissions-restricted traffic zones in European cities and are a compelling option to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in markets like Europe where refuelling infrastructure is well established.
