Dearman to double the size of its UK research and development center

LinkedIn +

Dearman has plans to double the size of its UK technology center ahead of further trials of its ground-breaking engine powered by liquid nitrogen.

The Dearman Engine has zero emissions – it emits no nitrogen oxide (NOx) or particulate matter (PM) – and it delivers significant carbon dioxide savings compared with a diesel.

The first application of the technology is a zero-emission alternative to diesel powered transport refrigeration units (TRUs). The Dearman transport refrigeration system is currently undergoing advanced road trials with Sainsbury’s supermarket and further international trials are set to begin later this year.

The planned expansion, which will more than double the size of the Dearman Technology Centre, will allow the company to assemble an increasing number of engines and refrigeration systems to support this expanded trial. It will also enable the company to integrate its technology onto vehicles and conduct whole system testing on-site.

In addition, the extended facility will provide more space to house Dearman’s advanced technology program, which is developing further applications of the Dearman Engine for use in transport, logistics and the built environment.
