Engineered Power Systems (EPS) can now continue the certification efforts for its high performance diesel engine, Graflight V-8, which is designed to produce 320 to 420 horsepower. An undisclosed Chinese investor has committed to funding the New Richmond, Wisconsin-based company. EPS could not divulge how much money it will receive, but it claims the funding will be sufficient to complete the certification program.
EPS first announced its diesel engine program in 2013, hoping to become the first manufacturer to successfully certify a modern-day diesel engine for high performance airplanes. The company plans to seek Supplemental Type Certification for several platforms once the certification is complete.
