Clean Propulsion Technologies project consortium comprises of 15 actors to form a common Co-Innovation initiative. In addition, there are 4 international collaboration partners in the project. One of the main strengths of the consortium is that it has been built of organizations that supplement each other’s expertise and are capable and willing to cooperate to achieve a common goal. Each member has a clear role in the consortium.
The public project part is formed by six national research organizations with complementary expertise in different domains of propulsion technologies: University of Vaasa (the coordinator), Aalto University, VTT, Åbo Akademi University and LUT University. Each of them has their own sub-projects that are integrated to form the public research part of the project.
In Clean Propulsion Technologies, two Finnish industry leaders focused on engine and powertrain production – Wärtsilä and AGCO Power are now for the first time working together on such a scale to solve a common challenge related to propulsion systems development. The consortium is supported by aftertreatment manufacturers (Dinex Finland, Proventia), electric powertrain component manufacturers (Bosch Rexroth, Geyser Batteries, APUGenius), monitoring and optimization service provider (NAPA), and end-system integrator (Meyer Turku). Overall, there are nine Finnish companies involved in the project. Six of them will execute their own company sub-projects strongly connected by the common scope and multilayer interactions with the public part.
The consortium is completed by four international R&D partners that share development ambitions with Clean Propulsion Technologies and actively support the project with their know-how: Lublin University of Technology (Poland), National Technical University of Athens – Laboratory of Marine Engineering (Greece), University of Adger (Norway) and Innas BV (Netherlands).
