UT Science Forum: Green Locomotives

Friday, 25 April, 2014

On April 25, Pete Claussen, founder and CEO of Gulf & Ohio Railways, Inc. and Knoxville Locomotive Works, will speak on "Green Locomotives" from noon to 1 p.m. during the UT Science Forum in Thompson-Boling Arena Dining Room C-D.

This is the final lecture in the 2013-14 UT Science Forum series.

Knoxville Locomotive Works (KLW) presents green locomotive solutions that are changing the way people think about green locomotives. Our single-engine solutions for switcher and road switcher locomotives offer extremely low emissions, reduced fuel consumption, and increased tractive effort. In essence, KLW products do more work, consume less fuel, and emit at Tier 3+ levels without the use of aftertreatment. Source: KLW website (

The UT Science Forum presented by Quest offers a weekly lecture on current science, medical or technology developments. It is free and open to the public.
