Hydrogen ICEs can outperform fuel cells in heavy-duty applications, says Westport Fuel Systems

Efficient, reliable, performing, cost-effective. This is, in a nutshell, Westport Fuel Systems’ H2 HPDI.

It can also be defined as the real alternative to fuel cells for heavy-duty vehicles, allowing internal combustion engines (ICE) to operate on hydrogen. An alternative that offers better advantages, compared to fuel cells, in terms of TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).

Westport Fuel Systems, headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, is a global player in the field of low-emission, alternative fuel-efficient engine and vehicle technologies. The company has recently released very promising results of model predictions, validated by experimental engine test data.

This follows the 2021 publication of a joint study with AVL, on the evaluation of the TCO of ICEs fuelled by hydrogen.
