Major Achievements
Overview
We design, develop and perform evaluation of all types of IC engines, such as diesel, gasoline, LPG, and CNG. We design engines right from concept to creating prototype, for various applications, like HCV, LCV, utility vehicles, tractor, genset, and 2 and 3 wheelers from 4 to 250 HP. We have successfully developed indigenous CNG and LPG conversion kits for 2 and 3 wheelers. and engine for meeting EURO IV emission norms.

Currently, we are engaged in designing technology from concept to creating prototype for advanced engine application, meeting EUROIV emission Norms with Common rail electronic diesel control. We offer services for design and development of engine components and subsystem, durability trials, emission control and specific power upgrades.
