Westport Gas Techniques will begin a analysis challenge with Scania to use an HPDI 2.0 gasoline system with hydrogen to the newest Scania industrial automobile engine. Preliminary check outcomes are anticipated within the second half of 2021.
Our specialty is working with gaseous fuels. Hydrogen use in an inner combustion engine with our HPDI gasoline system may provide one other cost-competitive pathway to scale back CO2 emissions from transportation. This thrilling evolution of our patented know-how may present an financial, aggressive different to gasoline cells whereas offering the same greenhouse gasoline emission discount profile.
—David M. Johnson, CEO of Westport Gas Techniques
Scania engineers have already gained beneficial insights from assessments with hydrogen and gasoline cells. Scania continues to drive the shift in direction of a sustainable transport system with here-and-now-solutions in addition to exploring new and future options; this analysis challenge is yet one more instance.
We sit up for the outcomes of this analysis, and the way it can information us in future choices. Nevertheless, analysis is all the time advanced and we anticipate it to take fairly a while earlier than we see the result.
—Eric Olofsson, Senior Technical Advisor at Scania Powertrain Analysis & Know-how
Westport’s HPDI (Excessive Strain Direct Injection) 2.0 is a totally OEM-integrated system that permits heavy-duty vans to function on pure gasoline with lowered gasoline prices, lowered CO2 emissions, and diesel-like efficiency.
HPDI 2.0 consists of a totally built-in “tank to tip” resolution, with a cryogenic tank and integral excessive stress liquefied pure gasoline (LNG) pump mounted on the chassis of the truck and plumbed to the engine the place gasoline stress is regulated earlier than being equipped to the injectors through excessive stress gasoline rails.
On the coronary heart of the engine is a patented injector with a twin concentric needle design. It permits for small portions of diesel gasoline and huge portions of pure gasoline to be delivered at excessive stress to the combustion chamber. The pure gasoline is injected on the finish of the compression stroke.
