Wal-Mart’s recent efforts to significantly lower their energy usage, waste, and overall carbon foot-print have led them to consider Brayton’s advanced gas turbine for their Class-8 truck applications.  Peterbilt, a division of PACCAR, contracted with Brayton to lead the effort to integrate our Next Generation Microturbine into their 386 truck.  Over the past months, PACCAR tech center has performed a rigorous mission analysis of the long-haul trucks, comparing our engine against their standard diesel engines.  The transient mission analysis indicates the our ICR-350 gas turbine, a 350 kW intercooler recuperated gas turbine with advanced ceramic hot-section, will beat the incumbent by more than 15% on fuel consumption, while operating over standard DOE/DOT driving cycles.  This funding will enable Brayton to perform system integration and support the test program planed for 2010.
