HORIBA MIRA and Dearman accelerate use of liquid nitrogen for primary power
A revolutionary hybrid bus that runs on both diesel and liquid nitrogen has completed a rigorous series of trials to bring it one step closer to the road.
The hybrid bus – CE Power – is the world’s first to be powered by liquid nitrogen and has been built by engineers at HORIBA MIRA as part of an Innovate UK consortium. The bus utilises alternative propulsion to address urban air pollution challenges and features a high-efficiency, zero emission Dearman Engine, powered by liquid nitrogen, alongside a conventional diesel engine. The hybrid system enables the bus to reduce noxious [...]
