On the basis of this agreement, both companies want to bundle their competencies in order to speedily press ahead with the natural gas injection system HPDI 2.0 developed by Westport with the assistance of AVL. The prevailing trend in the industry is towards the next generation of such systems. Offering commercial vehicles as natural gas-driven models equipped with the HPDI 2.0 technology is one of the most cost-effective solutions for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to react to the effects of traffic-related greenhouse gas emissions, said David Demers, Managing Director of Westport. Direct injection is compatible with the most technologically advanced diesel engines in the world.

Westport develops natural gas engines and natural gas-powered vehicles, and works with companies such as Volvo, General Motors, the Indian Tata Group and the Russian firm GAZ. According to information supplied by the company, total revenue in 2014 amounted to about USD 1.086 billion (EUR 969.47 million). AVL, which operates globally, employed more than 7,470 people in 2014, generating revenue of about EUR 1.15 billion.
