Lone voice

Owner Driver - - Owner/Driver -

WITH MOST truck and en­gine sup­pli­ers th­ese days dis­tanc­ing them­selves from EGR tech­nol­ogy for one rea­son or another, Detroit seems to be some­thing of a lone voice as it con­tin­ues to pro­mote the ef­fi­ciency and re­li­a­bil­ity cre­den­tials of its DD15 EGR en­gine.

The time is sure to come, how­ever, when Detroit’s Aus­tralian dis­trib­u­tor, Penske Power Sys­tems will em­ploy the same BlueTec SCR tech­nol­ogy used by its US coun­ter­parts. In the mean­time, DD15 con­tin­ues to be the only Detroit en­gine mak­ing head­way in Aus­tralia as its smaller and larger sib­lings sit in the shad­ows.

On a brighter note, at least Penske Power Sys­tems chose to be at Bris­bane, un­like its Penske Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles part­ner, and en­joyed the pa­tron­age of what seemed to be a small army of Detroit devo­tees.

Equally bright, Penske Power Sys­tems is now headed by Sean McLean, the for­mer Cummins ex­ec­u­tive widely re­garded for both his tech­ni­cal and pro­fes­sional prow­ess.
