IAAPS was delighted to announce the opening of its new 11,300 m2  purpose-built facility at the Bristol & Bath Science Park.

This marks a significant milestone in the development and growth of IAAPS as it ramps up operations and commences a host of large-scale commercial collaborations and ground-breaking research projects, developing future generations of clean and efficient propulsion systems. The move further cements IAAPS’ position as a global centre of excellence, delivering transformational R&I and supporting the wider transport industry in the transition to net zero.

The £70m facility, which has been funded by the University of Bath, the UK Government’s Research England and the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership, houses state-of-the-art powertrain, propulsion and both vehicle and component level research platforms fitted out with cutting-edge, specialist equipment capable of serving the whole transport sector, from automotive and aviation to marine, off-highway and heavy-duty vehicles. Furthermore, IAAPS recently announced it is adding a green hydrogen manufacturing and testing facility to its extensive portfolio, which will not only decarbonise the energy used on site by reducing the whole building carbon footprint, but which will also form the foundation of a regional hydrogen and renewable transport research hub.
