Official Opening of the Centre for Future Clean Mobility
Attended by SMI members Babcock and Ecomar, Helen Stephen also joined the official opening of the Centre for Future Clean Mobility (CFCM) which took place yesterday at the University of Exeter, Engineering Research Centre. Benefitting from major funding from the Heart of South West Local Enterprise Partnership, the purpose-built facilities place the CFCM at the forefront of research in new zero emissions powertrains in the 21st century. The CFCM partners with businesses to develop zero emissions, high-efficiency integrated power systems for applications in the marine, off-highway, rail, defence, and energy sectors and is committed to leading the next generation of clean mobility.
Prof Chris Smith, Director, CFCM led a tour of the new facilities, including the ‘Dynamometer’ – the only one of its kind in the UK – to design, build and test powertrain systems without putting an entirely new vehicle into production.
For more information on how the centre can support on battery pack design and test, powertrain design for optimal fuel efficiency, range and cost and other clean powertrain solutions, please visit: www.futurecleanmobility.com
