- Call for quotation for paraffinic diesel engine testing
Call for tender – to participate in the execution of specific engine test on using seven paraffinic diesel fuels thus looking at tail pipe emissions and severe driving cycle effects.
Deadline: 2018-06-08. Published on 2018-04-16.
The assessment will cover using or procuring a single Euro 6c light duty diesel vehicle, equipping it with the required sensors and execute vehicle emission testing (WLTP and RDE at low temperature). An optional part of the research is execution of a severe driving cycle in order to observe injector degradation.
Under the EU H2020 research and innovation programme a project has been developed for which the European Commission (EC) and CEN have signed a contract (SA/CEN/RESEARCH/EFTA/000/2014-13) under the Framework Partnership Agreement with CEN-CENELEC (FPA). The project is titled: "Engine tests with new types of biofuels and development of biofuel standards". One of its objectives being to check whether present or future engines might present issues regarding quality requirement for medium to high blends of paraffinic diesel and to confirm the potential emissions benefits for these types of fuels. The work that this tender covers has the scope to procure a new (Euro 6c) diesel light-duty vehicle and test its emissions with a small set of paraffinic diesel test fuels.
This tender is part of an overall project funded by the European Commission and executed by the European Standardization Committee, CEN. Project execution is being seconded to NEN, the Dutch Standardization Institute. NEN has appointed a programme manager and has installed a group of experts to advice NEN on the effective testing and research required. This TF4 has established the technical content of this call for quotation and assigned a project manager as their technical spokesperson. When indicated as part of the tender, the tenderer may be required to visit meetings of the TF4 on invitation by NEN. The programme manager acts as the contact for the test organization (tenderer); he/she will receive the reports and deliverables.
