KG has many years of experience and expertise in the field of automotive exhaust gas after treatment.  Approximately 450 skilled employees are engaged in the development, production and marketing of modular systems for reducing pollutant emissions. Our innovative environmental protection technologies can be used either as original equipment or for retrofitting in buses, coaches, passenger cars, commercial vehicles and a wide range of construction equipment applications.  HJS specialises in systems for diesel engines especially for reducing the emissions of soot particles (PM) and nitrogen oxides (NOx).  All HJS systems meet UK Ultra Low Emission Zone and Clean Air Zone requirements and are certified and approved at Millbrook Proving ground in accordance with authority requirements.

HJS are based in Menden in Central Germany with a dedicated UK support and technical facility operating in Bracknell, Berkshire.  We have firmly established relationships with some of the UK’s largest bus operators and we offer them a cost effective way of complying with the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) and Clean Air Zones without having to purchase new vehicles.

Vantage Power: Diesel to hybrid retrofit systems for buses

Vantage Power is a fast growing, high tech company based in Greenford, London. The team design and manufacture advanced energy storage systems, telemetry and hybrid drive trains for buses.

Retrofitting existing diesel buses with the Vantage Power B320 advanced hybrid drive train enables local authorities and bus operators to dramatically reduce bus pollution and meet their Clean Air Zone and ULEZ targets for a fraction of the cost of buying new buses.

In service running with the B320 has also shown a 37% – 45% reduction in fuel consumption and engine off time of >50%. The engine off time is highly significant as it is occurring at bus stops and in slow moving traffic, which are typically pollution hotspots.

The Vantage Power solution also comes with a life-time warranty on the battery, the ability to run with zero emissions in selected geofenced areas and inbuilt telemetry and remote diagnostic monitoring which significantly reduces maintenance costs.

The company has won an array of awards including, UKBA Nest Investment in Internet of Things 2016.

The Duke of Edinburgh recently visited Vantage Power to celebrate the introduction of London’s first retrofitted hybrid bus.
