C-ALPS Centre for Applied Low Carbon Propulsion Systems


The new low carbon technology centre will open next door to Coventry University's recently-launched £7 million National Transport Design Centre (NTDC), creating a cluster of transport-focused research and development facilities on the university's Technology Park.

Four state-of-the-art powertrain test cells will allow university and FEV researchers and engineers to test and improve performance and emissions on a range of different powertrain concepts, including hybridized, electric, conventional and alternative fuel propulsion systems.

The new test centre represents a significant growth in Aachen-based FEV's presence in the UK through its local engineering operation, which serves the UK automotive industry with specialist services in powertrain development and an increasing focus on vehicle electrification.

FEV already works closely with a number of UK customers. These leading international names in the automotive and aerospace industries are expected to use the facility to develop cleaner transport technologies, with a significant area of work set to be advanced propulsion systems – a key innovation theme identified in the UK government's industrial strategy.
