Mack to develop
Oct 23, 2008 3:31 PM
Mack Trucks Inc, Lehigh Valley PA, has received an award of just over $1 million from the US Army Tank Automotive Research, Development, and Engineering Center for a JP-8 powered engine.
The contract calls for the optimization of a commercially available “off-the-shelf” heavy-duty diesel engine to operate on JP-8, a fuel traditionally used in jets and commonly available to the military throughout the world. The Mack MP8 engine will be the centerpiece of this research and development effort, according to Mack information.
