CUMMINS POWER SYSTEMS IS COMMITTED TO DEVELOPING PRODUCTS THAT MINIMIZE THEIR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT.

The business unit is developing cleaner combustion techniques with natural gas and diesel reciprocating engine generators, plus factory-integrated exhaust aftertreatment that allows these products to meet stringent global emissions standards.

The business has been in the forefront of the move to cleaner, quieter and more efficient diesel engine-powered generator sets, improving the fuel efficiency of all its engines because less fuel consumed means fewer emissions overall. Cummins Power Systems’ lean-burn gas engine generators used in combined heat and power applications significantly reduce wasted energy and overall emissions.

Here are some of the most significant environmental sustainability developments in the business in 2015 and early 2016:

5.5 kW GENERATOR SET

Cummins Onan introduced a compact new 5.5 kW generator set in March 2015 designed to run on compressed natural gas (CNG) and provide auxiliary electric and optional hydraulic power for the growing number of commercial truck fleets powered by CNG.

NOTABLE: Compared to gasoline, CNG offers a reduced carbon footprint and lower per-gallon equivalent cost of operation. This makes CNG ideal for the small service trucks used by telecommunications companies, utilities, food trucks and other commercial operations concerned with fuel economy and sustainable business practices.

20, 40 and 60 kVA GENERATOR SETS

Cummins in September of 2015 showed off its new compact, transport-optimized 20, 40 and 60 kVA generator sets as part of its European rental product range.

NOTABLE: Cummins Power Systems targeted these new generator sets for the specific needs of rental fleet operators with customers in demanding sectors including construction, events, telecom and manufacturing. The new generator sets comply with the latest EU Stage IIIA emissions standards. Robust construction and heavy-duty components minimize total cost of ownership and the overall result is rental units that deliver optimum reliability in the field, with excellent uptime and service intervals of up to 500 hours.
