Westport Signs Supply Deal for LNG Pumps with Hema

New Supply Agreement with Hema provides a stable, affordable supply of fuel pumps for Westport’s natural gas fuel systems.

In January, Westport signed a long term supply agreement with Turkish manufacturer Hema Hidrolik to supply pumps for current and future heavy-duty customer applications.

Hema will manufacture and supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) pumps for Westport products such as the Westport iCE PACK™ LNG Tank System, a low pressure product offering many benefits to fleets including the use of either warm or cold LNG refueling.

“Hema believes in the future of the natural gas market and we are backing it up with investment in resources for manufacturing components such as Westport’s pumps,” says Ibrahim Hattat of Hema.

“Ensuring ready supply of quality fuel pumps for our customers is key to Westport,” noted Monica Feregrino, Westport’s Sr. Director, Purchasing & Supplier Development. “We are pleased to have support from our colleagues at Hema as we grow this industry.”
