Practical feasibility
and Economic Viability

RVCR Product realization: - Components Manufacturing viability, Critical modules, its geometry were assessed in terms of: – Cost; tooling needs; machining setup; line manufacture using conventional metallurgy & practices for applicability of economics of scale. RVCR has no viability issues. (In comparison Slider-crank Engines require complex set of borings and machining of casing, A-frame, ensuring entablature alignment, its close tolerances, collinearity, straightness, concentricity, main bearing inline boring, the drive accessories and drive chain needs. Additionally, the crank overhang, web & balancer construction and complexity of CAM-shafts, its support, placement, and drives are completely eliminated in RVCR). 90% of RVCR manufacture uses single point cutting tools including the toroidal curved surfaces.

  • The existing Industrial technological base; engineering competencies; technical management skills and product customer support, training, and distribution structures, suffice for and can be easily channelled for RVCR. RVCR Primemovers assembling, testing, calibrations and validation integration process into OEM’s products is similar and in-line with existing industrial practices. The integration and Suiting of RVCR Primemovers into End Products do not see any issues as RVCR Primemovers are smaller and easy to configure into all kinds of volume envelope . There are numerous expert engine tuner business to suffice for rapid Ramp up needs.
  • RVCR does-not require any change in ‘end user behaviour’ or new learning.
  • With regard to accessory systems required for RVCR, standard off-the-shelf systems (fuel, ignition, cooling, turbocharger, tribological, Exhaust) are compatible with RVCR and do not pose adaptability challenges.
  • We cover for the entire expertise needs of Pilot Primemover development services starting from initial technology customization assessment, to Project management, Testing, validation, integration & after service.
  • The global Regulatory scenarios till 2035 to 2050 on Emissions shows that the introduction of RVCR Mechanism shall reorient green technology strategies globally. RVCR stands out as a viable technology devoid of constructional complexities of Slider-crank Mechanism and turbines. This makes RVCR a realistic, higher efficiency and lower cost solution to deal with 21st century market drivers.

Competitive advantages we leverage: –

  • IPR of a breakthrough to leapfrog leaders.
  • RVCR knowhow lead
  • Pilot product project execution capability.
  • A low cost JV projects Strategy.

Early RVCR adoption has strategic Value for OEM’s:

  • Ease of Market Entry
  • Gain Sustained Market share
  • sustained competitive advantage-
  • Influence nature and Degree of competition.

Unique Selling Points

  • RVCR Technology is the only Gamechanger class solution that delivers strategic gains to OEM (leapfrogging existing Industry front runners and attain global leadership position, while global industry is stuck in incremental innovations. (ref box)
  • Our RVCR has no direct competitors and is far simpler when compared to any other alternative deep tech solution.
  • RVCR creates new market of Feed-stock Agnostic engines. Its easy to streamline into industry mainstream with products in a foreseeable timeline. We have knowhow of a technological tool to gain total Market Capitalization and the global IPR for ‘Region/segment specific dilution’ to gain wide range of strategic partners in all segments

The Approach advantage: –

  • Top-Down vs Bottom-Up– The transport industry comprises of large corporations dominating individual segments (like passenger car, Long Haul trailer, Tractors) and apply segment specific to innovation. Their elaborate operations architecture with numerous departments for specialized activities does-not allow ‘Top-Down’ technology revamping through new breakthroughs. They are entrenched in deep in-cycle investments in self-developed technologies and its cost intensive incremental innovations of existing systems in their large, centralized facilities developed over decades. We, being an innovation driven startup, are invested in new seed breakthrough concept at the onset of its life cycle and developing core technological skeleton for varied segment-based product applications of entire transport and energy industry.
  • Our Drive and Goal: -Unlike established players Industry pushed by ‘need driven innovation’ to adapt to its market needs, we are driven by new possibilities of new breakthrough concept enabling new paradigm in dealing with climate drivers. We have a unique technology solution that helps transitioning the existing business structures for catering to zero emission ecosystem and we have 1st entrant advantage.

Current status of RVCR tech development

RVCR technological case requires correct perspective as TRL is drawn based on straight line evaluation of readiness of innovation to be marketed. The root to RVCR Technology is its ‘Kinetics’ and the integrity and robustness of RVCR to deliver machines operable in Industrial environment is impeccably established and placed higher than TRL6. The realization of product (Prime-Mover) and its use further down-steam in end product for sale is multi-Layered Industrial process and hence TRL at end product would be at a lower level. However, our ‘RVCR technological solution and services’ is placed much higher and RVCR IPR license sale was successfully executed and has generated revenues. Hence RVCR technology solution with IPR & Knowhow is a mature services product for procurement by potential clients. The below table summarizes the project milestones and TRL.

Manufacturing Readiness Level is assessed at MRL-5.

All prototype parts since the 1st design and the latter iterations were manufactured. The capability to produce prototype components in a production relevant environment and the industrial base has been assessed and potential manufacturing sources are identified. The manufacturing strategy is refined, and materials, tooling, critical systems, test equipment, as well as personnel skills is demonstrated on components in production relevant environment. Producibility assessments of key technologies are ongoing and cost model for projected manufacturing cost is constructed.

The commercial part

Why now. Why RVCR?

Forceful societal pressures towards sustainable and lower carbon goals are leading to trillions in investments for large-scale diversifying into Renewable/green sources. We see massive investments for convergence of renewable energy through Super Grid for streamlining power demand and supply and reducing reverse spinning margin.

Similarly, green energy source count is increasing, however the critical constraining in the energy jugulars that registers losses are node points of energy conversion. Fractional improvement here has great impact in the cumulative systemic efficiency.  RVCR technological innovation is the key to this energy-power-work exchange and stands as a unified solution applicable to the entire transport and Energy ecosystem. RVCR Deep tech endeavor stands as an enabler technology based on superior Physics of mechanism in energy conversion at a crucial juncture. when conventional ones have exhausted all means of any substantial efficiency improvement and are saturating at their theoretical celling limits., RVCR success now will see timely maturation of new solutions clearing the road for next gen Primemover. Ph-II will empower RVCR to add the missing component for achieving of ‘Net Zero Carbon Emission 2050’ goals ‘WITH EASE’.
