Driveline Emissions Technologies has become the first company to successfully validate a retrofit SCRT system meeting CVRAS requirements to Euro III Cummins C series engine vehicles. This adds PCVs such as the Dennis Trident alongside Volvo B7 based vehicles.
Driveline’s test programme was completed at Millbrook during October, in addition to the successful Volvo D7 engine accreditation test held earlier in the year.
Stewart Mclean, managing director of Driveline commented; “This presents an exciting milestone for us. Following the acquisition of the Econoxt design and IP, we have invested well over £2m in 2019 alone on PEMS emissions testing equipment and product development as well as refining validation processes”.
“Euro III Cummins and Volvo engine vehicles represents a part of the bus fleet that has been largely ignored. We achieved over 99% reduction in NOX emissions over the CVRAS test cycle and whilst this was a challenge, by working closely with our world class OE supply chain partners we are now well set to develope solutions for most Euro 3, 4 and 5 engines to meet the Euro 6 based CVRAS standard.
“In our strong business relationship with the Energy Saving Trust we now look forward to providing the market with a greater range of accredited bus, coach and specialist vehicle exhaust retrofit applications than currently exists to meet market demand. With the impending extension of the London ULEZ, English Clean Air Zones and Scottish LEZ intervention initiatives. We are going to have a busy time over the next five years or so in the UK fleet sector
