Did you end up doing this ? I am interested if you did . I recently purchased a bus with the same engine and would love to put an electric fan on it .

BMW does this in many of their current engines. It's an absolute nightmare. But that's more due to their ideas about engineering than the fundamental idea.

From my understanding most modern buses actually use electric cooling fans . Some use some type of hydraulic fan too . Just allows for more control of fan speed which contributes to noise and then you don't have the issue of cooling past what you need .
