Westport Innovations Inc. announced that the Westport GX 2010 15L engine has been certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to 2010 emissions compliance. The GX engine is certified and compliant to 2010 emissions limits of 0.2 g/bhp-hr oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and 0.01 g/bhp-hr particulate matter without the use of emissions credits.

Adding to the U.S. certification, Australia’s Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government has certified the Westport GX engine in compliance with the Australian Design Rules 80/03, which takes effect for all heavy-duty truck models starting January 2011.

“With EPA certification, Westport’s GX engine meets the most stringent current North American emissions standards, in addition to providing fleets the energy security and robust performance the GX is known for,” says Jonathan Burke, vice president of GX sales and market development at Westport. “2010 trucks with the Westport GX engine, now available for sale to interested customers in North America, will have superior fuel economy while maintaining high reliability and performance.”
