Mogano VI (Moteur Gaz Naturel Euro VI)
The project consisted in developing a high power Euro VI gas engine. This project enabled CRMT to develop a know-how in NOx catalysis of the SCR type (residual CH4 residual exhaust) for engines operating in lean mixture.
MOGAS (Moteur Gaz Naturel stationnaire) : a new gas engine technology for generator sets
- The challenge: to manufacture a 1MW gas engine for emerging countries (Africa & Middle East) subject to severe environmental conditions: high ambient heat, altitude and varying gas quality and a faulty or non-existent electricity network.
CRMT was responsible of several key points:
- Ensure the power and efficiency of the engine under these excessive conditions,
- Preserve a low carbon footprint,
- Perform performance demonstrations by engine tests in the onsite measurement means.
MOGAS was selected by the FUI (Fonds Unique Interministériel) for its innovative content and supported by the CAPENERGIES competitiveness cluster, Bpifrance and the Métropole de Lyon, which partly contributed to its subsidy.
BLUESKY : The Green Mobility accelerator to transform Diesel vehicles into hydrogen and biomethane.
BLUESKY is a solution for end users such as SMEs of the transport sector, who cannot afford buying too expensive electric vehicles to transform their diesel vehicles. BLUESKY will enable thousands of businesses to comply with the European Green Deal’s clean transportation objectives and will cut down the inevitable long-term reliance of the transport sector on fossil fuels.
The project was recognised by the EU as CRMT was granted the Seal of Excellence for BLUESKY in May 2019.
During last year, CRMT carried out additional work to shift BLUESKY’s development towards a zero-fossil fuel goal favouring the use of hydrogen and biomethane.
BLUESKY kit consists of a Real Drive Control Unit predisposed for the renewable gases and the customer’s duty-cycles of the road transport segment to accelerate the conversion of diesel vehicles into hydrogen and biomethane ones, thus creating a market of affordable vehicles with new technologies and a fast solution to reduce drastically the GHG emissions and pollutants generated by the transport sector.
