Westport's Emer Introduces CNG Diesel Dual Fuel Poseidone System

On January 31, Emer, a Westport company, is introducing its Diesel Dual Fuel (DDF) Technology with CNG to a group of Italian fleets interested in natural gas vehicles. Named Poseidone System, the recently launched DDF technology is already in more than 120 engine types in 21 different countries.

The Emer Poseidone System is Europe’s only diesel and natural gas DDF system certified Euro V with plans to meet Euro VI standards in 2015. The system uses controller area network protocol, a vehicle bus standard, designed to allow microcontrollers and devices to communicate within a vehicle, eliminating the need for a host computer. This allows specific calibration for optimum system performance. The system’s unique function also monitors diesel consumption during vehicle operation, minimizing harmful emissions.

“Customers using our Poseidone DDF System, designed in collaboration with Ecomotive Solutions, an Italian Company, have told us that the performance of their dual fuel trucks is the same as their trucks operating on 100 percent diesel,” says Roberto Defilippi, Westport’s Business Development Director, EMEA and CIS. “Plus, they are benefitting from lower emissions and costs savings on fuel.”

The Poseidone System can be integrated in existing diesel engines, from Euro 0 to Euro V, without impacting the base engine’s reliability and lifespan. Through a series of maps, the engines are calibrated to reach the same performance as diesel engines, preserving reliability and lifespan through control of power, torque and exhaust temperatures.

“We’re looking forward to sharing information on the benefits of the Poseidone System with fleet operators and fuel providers,” added Roberto. “The system is reliable and offers operators a fuels savings of up to 20 percent with a payback period of about one to one and a half years.”

The free DDF event takes place on Saturday, January 31, 2015 at Italy’s Miglia Museum, a museum that celebrates the “Mille Miglia,” Brescia’s legendary car race. Over 250 industry professionals are expected to attend the learning and networking event held in partnership with Italy’s National Confederation of Crafts and Small and Medium Enterprises (CNA) offering attendees a special incentive for the purchase of the Emer Poseidone System.
