Ricardo has assisted CNR (Dalian) over a 30-year period in the design and development of the CNR 240 Z locomotive engine, and in market analysis to assess future product strategy.

Initially increasing the performance, fuel efficiency and reliability of CNR’s sixteen cylinder 240 railway locomotive engine, this collaboration extended to the very successful upgrade of CNR’s product through a series of projects.

The cooperation included technology and knowledge transfer through on-site working, and most recently has explored the development of CNR’s future large engine products.
