A four-minute video on the Kenworth Clean Power no-idle system can be viewed on Kenworth’s website at www.kenworth.com. Kenworth Clean Power is designed to offer enhanced fuel economy, increased driver comfort and reduced emissions. The system uses dedicated, advanced deep-cycle batteries that power a thermal storage cooler with 21,000 BTUs of cooling capacity.
Kenworth says that once the truck is shut off, a thermostat regulates the desired temperature, and a variable speed fan circulates chilled air through a duct located near the bunk; for dual bunk setups, a second duct keeps the upper bunk area cool. According to the company, extensive testing has shown that when the outside temperature is as high as 95 degrees, Kenworth Clean Power is able to keep the sleeper cool and provide accessory power for up to 10 hours. To provide heat when temperatures dip, a small diesel-fired heater mounted under the bunk also is controlled with a thermostat.
The new Kenworth Clean Power system can be ordered as an option on the Kenworth T660 with 72-inch AeroCab sleeper. “The addition of the Kenworth Clean Power video to the Kenworth website makes it very easy for customers to learn more about the features and benefits of this revolutionary system,” says Jeff Sass, marketing planning director of Kirkland, Wash.-based Kenworth.
