The University of Bath has awarded Rydon the contract for the construction of its new automotive propulsion research facility as part of the Institute for Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems. The construction of the world-leading GBP 70 million research facility has already begun and marks the latest stage in the development of IAAPS. It is scheduled to open in 2021 at the Bristol and Bath Science Park at Emerson’s Green in Bristol. Following the recent announcement that AVL has been chosen as the equipment supplier for the facility, the University will work closely with both AVL and Rydon to ensure the building and the equipment to be installed are fully aligned with future research to be carried out there.

Following the construction of the building envelope, installation of the new equipment will begin in early 2020, with a number of research facilities operational from early 2021.

IAAPS will be a global centre of excellence, delivering transformational research and innovation and supporting the automotive industries in meeting future air quality standards and the new facility is a key component in delivering this vision. It will support the automotive industry in the development of future generations of ultra-low emission vehicles and attract sector-related businesses to the region, generating economic growth.
