Delco Remy's New 36SI Alternator Provides Improved Fuel Efficiency for Fleets


PENDLETON, Ind., Sept. 24, 2008 - Delco Remy's new 36SI(TM) heavy-duty alternator is helping fleets meet fuel efficiency improvement goals. Design enhancements to the 36SI alternator include improved cooling, durability and overall efficiency.

Ultimately, alternator efficiency improvements equate to fuel savings. Large fleets, such as giant retailer Wal-Mart, are purchasing the alternator to improve their efficiency across their truck fleets.

"Wal-Mart is committed to increasing the overall efficiency of its fleet. New developments in technology are helping us move toward our goals," said Jeff Byrne, Senior Director of Purchasing and Fleet Maintenance for the transportation division at Wal-Mart Stores.

The 36SI alternator has a brushless design. This means fewer moving parts to wear, resulting in improved durability and life of the alternator. It also features Remote Sense technology that can reduce battery charge time by 50%.

"The 36SI was designed to reduce the engine horsepower needed to run the unit, leaving more horsepower to run the truck. This translates directly into fuel savings," explains Kent Jones, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Delco Remy.
