FPT Industrial, one of the world’s largest designers and manufacturers of low-impact sustainable engines, and Landi Renzo Group, which  designs, produces and distributes CNG, LNG and hydrogen components and systems, have signed two MoUs aimed at exploring the possibility of collaborating on clean fuel projects.

The companies will explore the possible development of natural gas and hydrogen technology respectively. Considering that the green economy and sustainable mobility will play a key role in all industrial transportation segments and with each other’s business and technological capabilities, the partners will explore potential collaborations on developing complete, efficient and fully sustainable mobility solutions.

The MoU will allow FPT Industrial and Landi Renzo Group to leverage their specific competences and technological capabilities for both natural gas and hydrogen.

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 optimising 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 cooperation in the hydrogen sector will also consider to cover areas of development that leverage the synergies that CNG and LNG can offer in bridging the introduction of hydrogen to the transportation sector, from its use as a blend in natural gas to up to 100 percent hydrogen.

Pierpaolo Biffali, VP – Product Engineering, FPT Industrial said: “The road to green mobility means offering complete, state-of-the-art and viable solutions. And high added value 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 turn-key solutions, to lower the ecological and economic impact of their transport business.”

Cristiano Musi, CEO, Landi Renzo Group said: “Natural gas, biomethane, bio-LNG and hydrogen will play an ever-increasing role in the transport decarbonisation effort, and we are very happy and proud to be at the side of a key player like FPT Industrial. 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.”
