TwinGen

Led by technology developer Samad, TwinGen developed a next generation CHP boiler with fast response characteristics similar to “combi” boilers that can be substituted for traditional boilers, replacing the fan and burner with a compact axial turbine assembly which slots into conventional unit package space. This configuration targets the boiler replacement market and the consortium included two boiler manufacturers and utility giant BG.

Productiv’s role was to refine the design for production and build prototypes

AIE

This project developed a novel rotary engine system for use as an ultra-compact range extender for electric vehicles. The implications are profound for the rotary engine and should enable increased uptake of hybrid electric vehicles, significantly reducing CO2 emissions. Productiv provided product development and prototype production.

PURE

The aim was to produce a low-cost, lightweight, small-volume, low-CO2, highly efficient auxiliary power unit (APU) for low carbon vehicles to help solve range anxiety issues associated with low carbon electric vehicles. The solution is configured to fit into a lightweight EV passenger vehicle. It is scalable and can be tailored to address lower and higher power requirements from 25kW to 150kW and beyond. The project covered a broad range of disciplines and built on RVT’s basic research and development in Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) and Electronica’s non-rare earth super-generators and novel control strategies. PURE combined these using MIRA’s expertise in co-design and low carbon vehicle integration. Productiv provided industrialisation, supply chain development and the rout to production.

TC48

The 48V Town & Country Powertrain Project aimed to develop the most cost-effective xEV powertrain in the world. The project developed Newcastle University’s developed switched reluctance motor) and used Infineon’s automotive microcontroller. Productiv led the production and supply chain development as well as the exploitation planning of the plug-in hybrid powertrain.
