Power Solutions International, Inc., a leader in the design, engineering and manufacture of emissions-certified engines and power systems, has entered into a master development and collaboration agreement with Hexagon Agility.

Hexagon Agility is a global leader in the development, manufacturing, and supply of compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquid petroleum gas (LPG) fuel systems used in medium vehicles.

PSI manufactures and develops 6.0- and 8.8-liter alternative fuel engines for OEMs of on-road transportation vehicles such as delivery trucks, school buses and terminal tractors.

The agreement enables both companies to focus on core competencies and better respond to the ever-changing technical landscape and growing demand for low emission vehicles driven by the tightening greenhouse gas (GHG) regulations. Under the agreement, both companies will work with medium duty OEMs to provide CNG & LPG system solutions. Hexagon Agility 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,” CEO Lance Arnett said. “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 Agility, 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.”
