By Mike Brezonick12 May 2021
FPT Industrial and Landi Renzo Group, a specialist in the design, production and distribution of compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG) and hydrogen components and systems, have signed two Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) aimed at exploring the possibility of collaborating on clean fuel projects. The MOUs are focused on the possible development of natural gas and hydrogen technologies.
The two companies said they will explore potential collaborations on developing complete, efficient and fully sustainable mobility solutions. In the natural gas sector, the MOU is intended to support the development of new fuel injection and management systems tailored for FPT Industrial applications, using Landi Renzo Group dedicated components. The collaboration will aim at optimizing the performance of the entire gas system and engine, evaluating how best to integrate Landi Renzo Group components into both CNG and LNG applications.
The companies’ cooperation in the hydrogen sector will also consider areas of development that leverage the synergies that CNG and LNG can offer in bridging to the introduction of hydrogen to the transportation sector, from its use as a blend in natural gas to to 100% hydrogen.
“The road to Green Mobility means offering complete, state-of-the-art and viable solutions,” said Pierpaolo Biffali, FPT Industrial vice president Product Engineering. “And high addedvalue partnerships, like the one envisaged in the MoU just signed with the Landi Renzo Group, are key to our strategy, which aims at offering customers real opportunities and turnkey solutions, to lower the ecological and economic impact of their transport business.”
Founded in 1954 and based in Cavriago (Reggio Emilia), Italy, Landi Renzo Group specializes in the design and production of components and feeding systems for CNG, LNG, hydrogen and LPG fueled vehicles. It operates through 16 companies in 13 countries across five continents and has longstanding collaboration agreements with importers and distributors worldwide.
“Natural gas, biomethane, bio-LNG and hydrogen will play an ever-increasing role in the transport decarbonization effort, and we are very happy and proud to be at the side of a key player like FPT Industrial,” said Cristiano Musi, CEO of Landi Renzo Group. “This partnership acknowledges the major developments delivered by our group as a technology innovator and system integrator, positioning the company to find new and increasingly efficient solutions.”
