Achates Power has an incredible amount of intellectual property and has done a lot of work to improve the fuel efficiency, power ratio and emissions performance of opposed-piston engines.
Dr. John Wall
Achates Power has realized the potential for impressive efficiency in their development of the opposed piston architecture. We have worked with Achates Power for a number of years now and applaud their engineers and engineering rigor, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration.
Achates Power has made excellent progress overcoming the challenges commonly associated with two-stroke engines: emissions, fuel economy, oil consumption and durability.
After reviewing the Achates Power engine technology and results, I am excited to work with the company on its commercialization efforts.

The Achates Power engine provides a very compelling value proposition for light-, medium- and heavy-duty powertrains manufactured in Europe, the U.S. and other regions.

The performance, low cost, and fuel flexibility of ICEs makes it likely that they will continue to dominate the vehicle fleet for at least the next several decades.
The opposed-piston, two-stroke engine realizes all of the economic benefits provided by the two-stroke cycle while, at the same time, accomplishing the difficult task of good scavenging.

The quickest and most cost-effective way to achieve our energy usage goals is through faster adoption of fuel-efficient downsized gasoline and diesel engines.
