Power Solutions International Inc. (PSI) and Hexagon Agility (Hexagon) have entered into a master development and collaboration agreement to produce compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquid petroleum gas (LPG) fuel systems.
Hexagon is a global provider of clean fuel solutions for commercial vehicles and gas transportation. Its product offerings include natural gas storage and delivery systems, Type 4 composite natural gas cylinders, propane, and natural gas fuel systems.
PSI manufactures and develops 6.0- and 8.8-liter alternative fuel engines for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of on-road transportation vehicles such as delivery trucks, school buses, and terminal tractors. In addition, it develops complete power systems that are used in stationary and mobile power generation applications supporting standby, prime, demand response, microgrid, co-generation power (CHP), and industrial applications.
Under the agreement, both companies will work with medium-duty OEMs to provide CNG and LPG system solutions. Hexagon will focus on the development and supply of CNG and LPG fuel systems and PSI will focus on the development and supply of engines and engine controls. The partnership also includes a teaming approach to proactively supporting service and service parts for CNG and LPG fleet vehicles in the field.
“This partnership helps us to better scale our engine platform,” said Lance Arnett, CEO of PSI. “By utilizing Agility’s experience with alternative fuel systems, we can focus our resources on our core engine and engine controls competence while broadening our reach into the expanding alternative fuel commercial vehicle market.”
Brad Garner, senior vice president, global customer care and technical service at Hexagon, added, “This collaboration enables us to provide additional alternate fuels system options for our global OEMs to support their need for low-emission vehicle offerings that enable their fleet customers to control fuel costs and meet environmental sustainability goals.”
