UNITED STIRLING GOES FLAT OUT FOR FUTURE EXPANSION

With a target of 1982 set for the production of Stirling engines, the Swedish United Stirling Company is concentrating on development of a twin-crankshaft layout instead of the previous v-configuration. Although a Stirling engine is likely to cost 50% more than a comparable diesel engine when in production, it has a high thermal efficiency of about 36%, a multi-fuel capability, extremely low exhaust emissions and a low noise level. Decisions on the production of a range of engines with outputs of 40, 75 and 150 kw, for possible use in public transport vehicles are likely to be taken in 1980.
