Westport joins up with Clean Energy

Westport Innovations, a Canadian company that has gained global renown for the development of natural gas technology for commercial vehicles, has entered into an agreement with rival technology company Clean Energy.

The deal, valued at over $30 million (AUD 31 million), will see commercial vehicle natural gas technology companies BAF and Servotech Engineering become part of the Westport organisation, while Westport and Clean Energy will enter into a $5 million joint marketing and sales program at the same time.

As a result of the amalgamation, Westport claim they have created the largest product portfolio and largest market presence in the North American light duty natural gas vehicle market. Next to the engine supplied into the heavy-duty and medium-duty truck market, the new organisation will also be supplying technology for Ford vehicles in the light commercial market.

“We welcome the BAF and Servotech teams to Westport,” said Ian Scott, Executive Buys President of Westport. “BAF has established a strong portfolio of natural gas vehicle products and customers over the past decade.

“With natural gas increasingly seen as a major transportation fuel around the world, we believe the combination of this new teams' market experience and Westport Technologies, scalable manufacturing processes and quality control systems will help create the type of products needed to deliver an OEM-quality vehicle experience to our customers.”
