Clean Air Power (CAP) has entered into a funded concept development agreement with Ricardo Inc, to develop a dual-fuel engine for a South East Asian market.
This is the first program to be awarded through the cooperation agreement between CAP, a developer in dual-fuel engine management software for heavy-duty vehicles, and Ricardo, a global truck manufacturer. The agreement was signed in September 2013.
The development program will use Clean Air Power’s Dual-Fuel™ combustion technology to deliver an advanced dual-fuel engine that not only achieves its emissions objective but also reduces the extent of emissions after-treatment required by the base diesel engine.
Following the successful completion of a concept phase (expected to last 6 months), the agreement will then enter a second stage to bring the advanced dual-fuel engine to start of production.
John Pettitt, CEO of Clean Air Power, commented: “It is a pleasure to be announcing a concept study so quickly after entering the cooperation agreement with Ricardo. This is a very exciting but challenging program which highlights the interest in our technology in major world markets including Asia.”
