Magna Powertrain’s Engineering Center Steyr, a core competence center for commercial vehicle, engine, and drivetrain engineering, is exploring dual-fuel combustion engines and intelligent thermal management engineering, or a combination of both, as part of its efforts toward CO2 reduction. Advanced methods and development tools—especially in the early virtual development phase—combined with truck-specific testing facilities are the basis for the development of dual-fuel and other technologies. The company’s dual-fuel system utilizes a conventional diesel engine and allows the vehicle to be operated in either diesel or dual fuel (CNG/diesel) mode.
