Hydrogen Engine Center (HEC) (OTC BB: HYEG.OB) today unveiled the new Mini Oxx(TM) three cylinder 2.4L engine at Aviation Industry Expo in Las Vegas, Nev. The Mini Oxx(TM) is a compact version of HEC's Oxx Power(TM) six cylinder 4.9L engine. The Mini Oxx(TM) will produce approximately 65 horsepower. Many applications exist for the Mini Oxx(TM) including luggage tractors and other airport ground support equipment.
"Seventy-two of the 81 parts used in the six cylinder, 4.9L engine are the same for the new three cylinder Mini Oxx(TM) and are interchangeable," said Ted Hollinger, president of HEC. The engines include the same essential technologies and can be converted to use hydrogen when it is available. HEC has targeted production of the Mini Oxx(TM) to begin in the first quarter of 2007.
