We range from heavy professional transport up to passenger cars passing through light commercial vehicles. For each of these applications, we have a solution that can combine the most suitable alternative fuel for your needs respecting the environment and regulatory constraints (we homologate vehicles of category up to EURO 6 thanks to the continous certification commitment with the Ministries of Transport of each country in which we operate.
400 hp with biomethane for a record Cupra
The environmental advantages of methane don’t mean renunciation: it is demonstrated by the extraordinary experience of conversion to natural gas carried out for Snam4Mobility on a Cupra Ateca. The result obtained in the test rooms is a 400 hp engine at 6440 rpm and a torque of over 510 Nm. These performances make the car incredibly fast in acceleration, with consumption values and operating costs comparable to a common city car.
Thanks to our contribution, industrial engines used in the heaviest working situations can also use environmentally friendly alternative fuels for their daily activities. The establish of biomethane has led us, for example, to develop a complete line of solutions for agricultural mechanization. The need to extend the ‘green’ concept to activities in ports and inter-ports has pushed us to realize applications for specific means of handling. And the challenge to ‘color in green’ the heaviest and most powerful vehicle continues!
A zero-emission grape-harvest
Towards a zero-emission Barolo grape-harvest: thanks to “Tobias” project (Biomethane traction for a circular supply chain in the field of specialized agriculture) commissioned by FPT Industrial and New Holland Agriculture, we brought our know-how up to the hills of the prestigious Fontanafredda winery.
Where electrified lines cannot arrive or in those situations in which diesel is still the most widely used fuel, our sustainable proposal meets the growing need for lower environmental impact and reduction in the operating costs of rolling stock. Not only passenger trains and manoeuvre locomotives but also applications in the mining, heavy equipment, off-road, marine, agricultural and energy sectors.
Requalification for a sustainable tourism
Eliminate particulate emissions, nullify carbon dioxide emissions and promote a sustainable tourism model: with our biomethane retrofit, “Fondazione FS Italiane” can now use again the renewed ALN 668 railcars, the backbone of regional transport on non-electrified lines starting from the 1950s.
Logistics is not limited to moving loads on roads and highways: the challenge of Ecomotive Solutions continues on “sea highways”. In a world of constantly evolving regulations and with the spread of ECA (Emission Control Areas) to make the scenario more dynamic, Ecomotive is already engaged in various missions and projects to give a green turn to this sector as well.
Biomethane takes off
To promptly intervene on the lagoon network while protecting the delicate ecosystem of Venice, Italgas (a leading company in Italy in the distribution of natural gas) called upon us, together with Cantiere Lizzio, to develop the largest service boat ever converted to methane, allowing a significant reduction of CO2 and nitrogen as well as the abatement of particulate matter.
The growing variety of non-fossil fuels of biological or synthetic origin creates a strong demand for technological solutions to produce energy. In addition to Diesel Dual Fuel, we offer transformations of diesel engines into omnivorous gas engines, capable of burning alternative fuel by replacing diesel at 100%. Using syngas (biomass pyrolysis gas) you get a solution that can interact in an evolved way even with the gas production plant itself.
Methanol generators for the Israeli market
Not only biomethane: with the project commissioned by a well-known Israeli group active in the world of energy distribution, Ecomotive Solutions has successfully developed a series of generators powered by 100% methanol (methyl alcohol), originally fueled by diesel.
