Castlet are proud to be part of a UK consortium, led by Cummins Ltd in the development of new Start / Stop technology for diesel engines.

As part of a £130 million investment by The Development for Business, Innovation & Skills and the Technology Strategy Board we will be involved in this exciting new collaborative project will deliver a high impact cost effective advance in fuel efficiency significant reductions in carbon emissions from city bus operations, this will reduce fuel consumption by some 15 - 20%.

This is great news for Castlet, it not only means we have an excellent opportunity to expand our knowledge base but it will also mean an increase in our current workforce, initially just for the design stage but ultimately we estimate that over a four year period an additional 15 jobs will be created.
