Tata Mo­tors has un­veiled a Bio-CNG (bio-methane) bus in In­dia. Based on the LPO 1613 plat­form, and pow­ered by a 5.7-litre nat­u­rally as­pi­rated BSIV elec­tronic en­gine the bus was dis­played at ‘Urja Ut­sav’, a bio-en­ergy event or­gan­ised by the Min­istry of Pe­tro­leum & Nat­u­ral Gas. With CNG pow­ered LPO 1613 buses in the ser­vice of Pune Ma­hana­gar Pari­va­han Ma­haman­dal Limited (PMPML) al­ready, the bio-methane bus is ex­pected to con­trib­ute pos­i­tively to the smart cities propo­si­tion. Fol­low­ing the un­veil­ing of a LNG bus on the same plat­form at Tri­van­drum a few months back, the Bio-CNG bus marks yet an­other in­no­va­tive prod­uct from Tata Mo­tors in al­ter­nate fuel tech­nolo­gies. Stress­ing upon the need to safe­guard the en­vi­ron­ment, Girish Wagh, Head – Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles, Tata Mo­tors, men­tioned that the 5.7-litre bio­gas en­gine em­ploys se­quen­tial gas in­jec­tion tech­nol­ogy, plug type coils, and long life spark plugs. The oil drain in­ter­vals are longer.
