Caterpillar to work with Westport

In Canada, Westport Innovations has announced it has entered into an agreement with Caterpillar in order to evaluate direct injection, natural gas fuel system technologies for possible use in Caterpillar’s engines.

The two parties to the agreement will combine their respective technologies as well as components in an effort to develop a dual system which can be evaluated on a multi-cylinder testing engine.

“We are excited to work with Caterpillar, the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives,” said Bruce Hodgins, Vice President Market Development at Westport. “This is a significant opportunity to both companies to demonstrate the viability of direct injection natural gas technology on large engines.”
