Cummins Turbo Technologies – Trident

Decarbonising heavy duty powertrains

Project Highlights 

  • Development of a highly efficient e-machine for energy recovery.
  • Advance the adoption of decarbonising heavy duty applications through meeting their extreme demands of cost-performance, operational availability, design life and reliability.   
  • Build the UK supply chain for the next generation of heavy duty turbochargers.  
  • Utilising Bath Universities (IAAPS) system modelling capability across a multitude of existing powertrains, fuel cells, hybrids and alternative fuels.   
  • Total project value £20 million, with £10 million funded through the APC.

Project Consortium 

  • Cummins Turbo Technologies Ltd  
  • University of Bath 
  • Holtex Ltd 
  • Aeristech

Compressing the time to a step change in turbo efficiency

Building on extensive cutting-edge developments in every major component and subsystem across the mechanical and e-machines domains, Cummins Turbo Technologies (CTT) alongside Tier 1 to Tier 3 partners across the UK supply chain aim to create a game-changing energy recovery platform. By redefining the practical limits of system efficiency across multiple thermal propulsion powertrains as well as system level efficiency at vehicle level, the project hopes to deliver CO2 and fuel consumption improvements for ICE-based platforms such as hybrids, natural gas vehicles and reduced-emission diesel variants.
