The project is scheduled for completion mid-2020. Currently, individual thermal barrier materials are being optimised for specific applications before vehicle-based development gets underway later this year. Great potential exists for future technology transfer to other transport applications such as large commercial vehicles and buses.
Led by New Holland Agriculture (a global agricultural machinery brand of CNH Industrial N.V.) based in Basildon, Essex, the program brings together a consortium of world-class UK technology companies alongside Zircotec. These include Ricardo (engine consultancy). Eminox (after-treatment) and the National Composite Centre (high pressure composite gas tanks).
The APC aims to position the UK as a centre of excellence for low carbon propulsion development and production. The APC team brings together and supports those who have good ideas in the form of innovative technologies with those who can bring them to market as products.
