Xinde Technology Company, a China-based designer and manufacturer of internal combustion engines and parts primarily for the market in China, is developing a common rail electrically-controlled fuel injection system in cooperation with engineers at Tianjin University.
Our confidence in this very significant home-grown product is supported by the supply letter of intent we have concluded with Weichai Power Co., Ltd, one of the main diesel engine manufacturers in the PRC. They are prepared to purchase 200,000 sets of products yearly whenever our new diesel fuel injection system comes to market, which we currently estimate could be in approximately 18 to 24 months. At that time, we expect to be the sole domestic manufacturer of an electrically-controlled diesel fuel injection system that meets and exceeds the new emission standards that will become mandatory in China in 2015. Further, with significantly lower manufacturing costs than current foreign leaders in this market such as Bosch and Denso, we believe our new product will be quite competitive and are seeking additional supply LOAs with other domestic diesel engine manufacturers.—Dianjun Liu, President and CEO
Xinde said that it believes that with slight modifications, the new fuel injection system can be upgraded to meet the Euro IV/V emission standard.
