LONDON--Feb. 12, 2014: Clean Air Power has announced the award of a funded concept development agreement with a global truck manufacturer, under which it will work with Ricardo to develop a dual-fuel engine for a South East Asian Market.

The purpose of the development programme 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 six months, the agreement will then enter a second stage to bring the advanced dual-fuel engine to start of production.

In late 2013 Ricardo and Clean Air Power announced that they had entered into an agreement for the development of the dual fuel engine business, aiming to strengthen the offering to clients of both companies. Bringing together Ricardo's system integration expertise with CAP's dual-fuel technology of compression ignited diesel engines that use natural gas with diesel pilot ignition, the development announced today is the first major contract to arise from the collaboration between the two companies.

“It is a pleasure to be announcing a concept study so quickly after entering the cooperation agreement with Ricardo,” commented Clean Air Power CEO John Pettit. “This is a very exciting but challenging program which highlights the interest in our technology in major world markets including Asia.”

“We congratulate Clean Air Power on the announcement of the award of this important project,” added Ricardo, Inc. president Tom Apostolos. “This achievement serves as a highly tangible validation of our strategy of collaboration with Clean Air Power, combining its market leading dual-fuel engine technology with Ricardo’s expertise in vehicle systems integration, and hence providing significant value to customers on a global basis.”
