Project briefly

Noise from marine traffic has an ill effect on the surrounding environment. Reduced engine noise improves travelling comfort too. Business Finland has granted funding to the University of Vaasa for the Silent Engine research project. Together with partners, the University of Vaasa with its VEBIC laboratories will seek new silent and vibration-free solutions to help the Finnish powertrain industry meet the criteria set for noise, vibration, and sustainability.

The goal

Rebooting the powertrain industry toward meeting combined NVH and sustainability criteria

To be achieved by

shifting the development paradigm from a slow incremental improvement method towards fast-tracking radically new silent and vibration-free solutions

The timeline

1.10.2022-30.9.2025

The budget

1,33 Million Euros
