EcoMotive builds full-sized model of dual-fuel H-Motor

Eco-Motive USA recently finished construction of a full-sized model of its patented dual-fuel H-Motor. (Earlier post.) The H-shaped engine comprises parallel left-side and right-side vertical inline piston banks, each having a crankshaft and pistons, a cylinder head, and individual fuel feeds, but sharing a common power transmission system. Each piston bank operates independently of the other but is housed within the same engine block and has separate lubrication systems.

The company said that the construction of the model paves the way for creating a functional prototype for the cadre of interested investors and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

The model was created partially through the traditional process as to etch out a variety of pieces. The other individual components were fabricated through advanced 3D printing technologies.

The company projects completing a functional prototype this year.
