Kenworth Truck Co has launched the Clean Power Technology Tour, which will travel to the firm's dealers throughout the United States in 2007.

The Clean Power cooling and heating system is available as a factory-installed option on the T660 with 72-inch AeroCab sleeper. The system uses dedicated, advanced deep-cycle batteries that power a thermal storage cooler with 21,000 Btus of cooling capacity. Once the truck is shut off, a thermostat regulates the desired temperature, and a variable-speed fan circulates chilled air through a duct near the bunk. Testing has shown that when the outside temperature is as high as 95° F, Clean Power can keep the sleeper cool and provide accessory power for up to 10 hours.

The initial phase of the tour will take place at Kenworth dealers in the western United States before the tour makes its way to other regions. More information on Clean Power, including a new video, is available at www.kenworth.com.
