First Diesel Combustion Commences on AVEC ‘Workhorse 7.1’ Engine
PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Axial Vector(TM) Engine Corporation (BULLETIN BOARD: AXVC.OB) announced today that its Workhorse 7.1 engine fired up.
The AVEC Workhorse 7.1 engine was fired-up on Thursday Sept 14 and produced power for the first time at a well known and highly respected third party Detroit automotive engineering firm. The engine development testing will continue with the resolution of test cell instrumentation issues. This is a significant and important event since it is the first time that a diesel engine with such a power transmission design (sinusoidal cam) has ever fired up and produced power.
Dr. Raymond Brouzes, President and CEO of AVEC, indicated that comments uttered by the Development Engineering Team in Detroit says it all: “We never thought that whiffs of diesel fumes could smell so sweet and engine noises could sound like a pastoral symphony”.
AVEC will continue to keep its shareholders and interested publics updated on its website regarding the engine trials and performance results as they emerge. A video clip of the engine’s maiden run will be posted shortly on the
Axial Vector(TM) Engine Corporation is a publicly traded company that owns, develops and licenses proprietary intellectual property regarding unique internal combustion engine and generator technologies. We are applying these technologies to develop an exciting, new, smaller and lighter internal combustion engine that produces significantly greater horsepower and three times more torque on less fuel than conventional engines of similar size. The internal combustion engine as we know it today may never comply with mandated pollution standards and meet the strong demand for cleaner and far greater fuel-efficiency engines. We see the Axial Vector(TM) as the engine design that will comfortably meet these challenges, and more.
Key entry markets for the Axial Vector(TM) Engine include a number of specific military and industrial applications. Additionally, we are developing a family of Axial Flux electric power generators that shall operate in a fully integrated fashion with our unique Axial Vector(TM) Engine technology. The resulting GENSET will consume less fuel per unit of electrical power output (kWh) and are considerably smaller than any known internal combustion engine generators.
