TwinGen

Led by technology developer Samad, TwinGen is developing 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, allowing technology licensing into boiler manufacturer standard ranges.  This configuration represents a breakthrough for reaching the boiler replacement market.  In recognition of this potential, the consortium includes two boiler manufacturers and utility giant BG.  Productiv is working with Samad to refine the design and produce prototypes.

AIE

This project aimed to develop a completely novel rotary engine system for use as an ultra-compact range extender for electric vehicles. The implications are profound for the rotary engine and would lead to increased uptake of hybrid electric vehicles, significantly reducing CO2 emissions.

PURE

The aim of the PURE project 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 bespoke to the automotive industry and initially 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 spans a broad range of disciplines and builds 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 combines these using MIRA’s world class expertise in co-design and low carbon vehicle integration, in conjunction with Productiv’s ability to industrialise low Carbon automotive technologies.

TC48

The 48V Town & Country Powertrain Project aims to develop the most cost-effective xEV powertrain in the world. It brings together world leaders in the development of switched reluctance motors, which do not use rare earth magnets (Newcastle University) and automotive microcontrollers (Infineon Technologies); working with Productiv to produce a plug-in hybrid powertrain that will set a new benchmark for cost reduction and is designed for volume manufacture and assembly.
