Longrun, a Sustainable Project for Environmentally Friendly Heavy-Duty Trucks and Coaches

FPT Industrial further confirms its commitment to sustainability and research into alternative propulsion solutions for the on-road segment, taking part in LONGRUN, a European Union Horizon 2020 innovation programme. The LONGRUN acronym stands for the development of efficient and environmentally friendly LONG-distance poweRtrain for heavy dUty trucks aNd coaches.

LONGRUN brings together 30 partners, Including FPT Industrial’s sister brand IVECO, from 13 countries across Europe, who are joining forces to accelerate the path towards a smarter and more sustainable future. The ambitious goal of the LONGRUN initiative is the reduction of real driving emissions and fuel consumption in the long-haul transport sector, supporting decision making with most recent and validated results, as well as making recommendations for future policies.

Within the project, a further achievement will be the simulation supporting the design and development of efficient powertrains, including hybrids for both trucks and coaches. The partners will develop eight demonstration units (three engines, one hybrid driveline, two coaches and three trucks) so as to accelerate the transition from fossil-based fuels to alternative and renewable alternatives. The LONGRUN project will contribute to lowering the environmental impact of heavy-duty vehicles by developing different engines, drivelines and demonstrator vehicles with 10% energy saving and 10% CO2 saving, 30% lower exhaust emissions (NOx, CO and others), and 50% peak thermal efficiency.

With the proposed initiatives, a leading position in hybrid powertrain technology and internal combustion engines operating on renewable fuels in Europe will be guaranteed, underlining how a multipower approach is necessary to achieve these sustainable targets.
