Clean Air Power (CAP), developer of Dual-Fuel engine management software for heavy duty vehicles, has been awarded R&D funding by the Niche Vehicle Network’s collaborative research and development programme. The funding award will be shared with project partner Eminox Ltd, a developer and manufacturer of advanced exhaust after-treatment systems. The project will deliver prototype after-treatment packaging for use on Euro VI compliant Dual-Fuel heavy duty vehicles, expected to be completed in Q1 2013.
Packaging the exhaust after-treatment systems is described by CAP as an important step towards applying its dual-fuel technology to Euro VI vehicles and recognition of the place that this technology holds in the UK’s low-carbon vehicle roadmap.
Commenting on the announcement, John Pettitt, CEO of Clean Air Power said: “We are proud and excited about winning a grant from the Niche Vehicle Network and applying those funds towards Euro VI after-treatment system development. I would like to thank the Network for the grant proceeds and recognition among a strong competitive group of companies and technologies. Clean Air Power is the pioneer in Dual-Fuel engine systems and we look forward to devoting our expertise and effort in the delivery of this project.”
