Clean Air Power, the developer and global leader in Dual-Fuel engine management software for heavy duty vehicles , said that it has entered into a funded concept development agreement with a global truck manufacturer to develop a Dual-Fuel engine for a South East Asian market.
This is the first program to be awarded through the cooperation agreement with Ricardo, Inc , signed in September 2013 . The purpose of the development program is to utilise 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.
Subject to a successful 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.
Commenting on the agreement , John Pettitt, CEO of Clean Air Power, said: “ 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.”
