Dolphin N2 – Recuperated Engine – Advanced Route to Market Demonstrator
RE-ARMD accelerates advancement to market readiness demonstration for the Recuperated Split Cycle Engine, a revolutionary heavy duty thermal propulsion system that offers fuel-cell levels of efficiency (55%BTE), near-zero emissions (5% EuVI NOx), and ability to transition to sustainable fuels such as biomethane and hydrogen.
The project combines industrial and academic expertise to improve the engine’s efficiency and emissions, and validate a hydrogen combustion system with a unique ability for rapid conversion of a base liquid fuel unit.
Outputs are a demonstrator engine, and legacy of improved technology, facilities and virtual tools in readiness for a future APC application and commercialisation.
