Clean Air Power, dual-fuel engine management software developer for heavy duty vehicles, has delivered 172 system sales in the first half of 2013 and, together with its European OEM partner, has an additional 180 customer orders to bring the year to date total to more than 350. By comparison, 300 sales were achieved in 2012.
Clean Air Power has continued to make significant progress during the year developing a dual-fuel product suitable for the growing US market and exhibited its first prototype vehicle retrofitted with a US version of its Genesis-EDGE product at the Alternative Clean Transportation EXPO, Washington DC., 24-27 June 2013.
CEO John Pettit explained the vehicle was well received by attendees at the EXPO with more than 150 visitors to the stand. The company anticipates the first trial vehicles will be on the road and undergoing validation by the end of 2013, with production commencing in early 2014.
Earlier in the year Clean Air Power announced the start of a 2-year funded research project with Brunel University to develop the next generation of advanced dual-fuel combustion systems funded by the UK Government’s Technology Strategy Board.
Pettitt said: “I am pleased that Clean Air Power has already received system sales orders in 2013 exceeding that for the full year in 2012. Despite production constraints of dual-fuel vehicles by our European OEM partner we have seen an encouraging pick-up in momentum at the start of the second half of the year. In the US, the exhibition of our first prototype dual-fuel vehicle was an important milestone in our development of a US Genesis-EDGE product, which has the potential to generate significant revenue for the Group and further validate our technology to potential new OEM partners in the U.S.
