Walmart fleet rolling out ’cleanest combustion engine in the world’
Tidigare inlägg om Achates
It’s now being tested in a Walmart fleet truck, which could pave the way to mass adoption.
“We want to pull together a consortium of companies and some engine makers,” Van Amburg said. “But we need to move it into a rapid piloting stage — move from the demo stage to pilot.”
What if we told you that a new 10.6-litre, 3-cylinder diesel engine is in development by Achates Power and the company says that this motor is the “World’s cleanest combustion unit”. Less smoke, more fuel-efficient and higher power. On the dyno, this engine hits 440hp of power and a massive 2372Nm of torque.
I learned all of this during a webinar put on by Calstart, a consortium of 280 companies aiming to make cleaner air through more efficient transportation. The webinar covered medium- and heavy-duty trucks, and Calstart was encouraging companies to consider the opposed-piston engine for their trucks.
