Gov. Walker visiting New Richmond Monday afternoon

Gov. Scott Walker is expected to fly into New Richmond early afternoon, ahead of a visit to Engineered Propulsion Systems, a cutting-edge firm technology firm perfecting an aircraft engine that runs on various types of diesel fuel.

Walker's office announced Sunday evening that the Governor will tour EPS' offices at 150 West First St. at 2:35 p.m., Monday.

The advisory said Walker "will take questions from the media at the end of the visit if time allows."

Engineered Propulsion Systems, Inc. has been working on the new engine design for several years.

"The EPS Vision 350 is the answer for the future of light-weight airplane diesel engines. Its engine architecture answers the need to be light weight and reliable. It is the twenty first century airplane engine the market and pilots have been asking for," EPS states on its web site.
