UKTI business opportunity: Mexico – Advanced Technologies for Hybrid Buses
A Mexican bus company is seeking suppliers of automotive low carbon and hybrid technologies as part of development of a new hybrid diesel-electric bus
A Mexican bus company and University are working together to develop a hybrid diesel-electric bus. The project is being funded by the FIT (Fondo de Innovación Tecnológica), a trust created by national government organisation. According to the company, besides supplying a growing and undeveloped market in the country, the project aims to satisfy a growing need for low carbon technologies, energy efficiency and lower fuel consumption.
Company executives have also expressed a need for advanced technologies not currently available in Mexico for low carbon automotive, lithium ion batteries, specialised capacitors, convertors, and advanced applications for heat storage and processing.
The Advanced Engineering Team for the UKTI in Mexico can put UK suppliers of these components in contact with the developing company to explore the possibility of a commercial project. Besides having privileged access and contacts inside the industry, the team can also support UK companies in arranging key meetings and agendas while visiting the market. The tender deadline is 01/04/2012.
