Kitchener, ON –IMPCO Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the alternative fuel industry and a division of Westport Fuel Systems Inc., has reaffirmed the release of its new Heavy-Duty/Light Weight Rail Auxiliary Power Unit.

This innovative technology, developed in collaboration with the railroad industry expert Canadian Environmental Technologies ("CET"), was presented in March 2015 at the ASLRRA Show in Orlando. It then launched at the Rail Interchange Show in Minneapolis, in October 2015, where it was received very positively by the market.

IMPCO’s Light Weight Rail Auxiliary Power Unit generates great fuel savings, while guaranteeing engine heating, battery charge and cabin comfort. A Perkins/CAT 3 cylinder diesel engine powers a durable alternator capable of delivering up to 150A of 72V DC current, whilst providing the required heat to keep the locomotive engine warm, even in extreme cold weather.

The advanced control system and software allows safe operation of the unit and protects the locomotive by continuously monitoring the water temperature and state-of-charge of the batteries. The product is designed for minimized weight and footprint, low maintenance, minimum downtime and maximized fuel savings.

IMPCO’s new Auxiliary Power Unit is distributed globally and exclusively by Canadian Environmental Technologies ("CET") for all aftermarket applications.
