Many believe that the glory days of Big Auto Big Engine dominance are nearing an end.

Large displacement engines are the work horses and driving backbone of many industries - and the top consumers of fossil fuel. DyneGen engines will be designed and built to operate on natural gas, hydrogen, and ammonia-based fuels. Based on a conventional 460 CID block, this engine is extremely well known and widely accepted in the market place and has wide support in terms of component availability in the supply chain. The 460 block is capable of delivering engines sized from 7.5 to 12 liters by varying the bore and stroke. It is anticipated that three to five configurations may be needed to support industry and customer needs.

The DyneGen Engine 1.0
Engine product family 1.0 consists of two configurations: 1.1 is built to burn natural gas and/or ammonia and will range in size from 7.5 liters to 12 liters. Engine 1.2 is 12 liters and built to burn a LBTUF, specifically, hydrogen in this case. Differences between 1.1 and 1.2 include the compression ratio, displacement, and fuel maps for the controller.

The DynGen Engine 1.1
Currently in field testing is a standard 460 cubic inch engine block modified to use new technology injectors, controls, and a bi-fuel delivery system to allow it to burn natural gas first and then switch over to anhydrous ammonia (NH3). This engine will demonstrate the technical feasibility of building a 9.4 L engine with these new technologies that will deliver improved engine efficiency and reduced emissions.

The DyneGen Engine 1.2
Currently under development with pending orders. This engine will be fielded for a number of pilot projects where there is abundant hydrogen being produced. These engines will be matched to either 250 kW or 500kW generators to produce competitively priced electricity.
