Part of the world–wide power systems business which has annual sales of more than $1.2 billion, Cummins Power Generation’s strength comes from being a division of Cummins Inc.
Cummins Power Generation has unique expertise in that all aspects of generator set design, manufacture and service have been brought together in one company.
All the major components — the engine, alternator and control systems — are manufactured by divisions of Cummins. This integral approach means each element of a generating set is matched to work in harmony from the start.
Providing what the customer wants is at the core of Cummins’ manufacturing philosophy. For generating set customers this means a choice of mobile, stationary, open or sound attenuated versions is available for all models.
For the design, test and installation of power supply packages, Cummins Power Generation has the resources and capacity to tailor generating set packages to customers’ exact requirements. The result — the best engineering solution for the ultimate in peace of mind.
Meeting Worldwide Standards
As part of its global emissions strategy, Cummins focuses on meeting or exceeding U.S. EPA and EU emissions standards, as these standards are the world's most stringent and all encompassing. This strategy assures end-users of the best power generation solution for their application, regardless of country or continent..
Although many countries, including China, India, Japan and Singapore, now regulate emissions from stationary and nonroad diesel engines, these regulations vary from one country to the next. Industry organizations emphasize the need for harmonized standards worldwide–and regulations are trending in that direction.
Our Environmental Commitment
Cummins is committed to providing products that minimize their impact on the environment. We are 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.
Cummins is improving the fuel efficiency of all its engines because less fuel consumed means fewer emissions overall. Sophisticated electronic engine controls have virtually eliminated visible smoke, and better engine design has reduced lubricating oil consumption to only 0.15 percent of fuel consumed–the best in the industry. Our lean-burn gas engine generators used in combined heat and power (CHP) applications significantly reduce wasted energy and overall emissions.
To minimize other operational impacts, our generators are designed to exhibit inherently low noise and low vibration. With optional advanced sound-attenuated enclosures, even large generator sets can be located near residential areas without affecting the local environment.
Cummins Inc. is recognized for its environmental progress, and for being the first engine manufacturer to meet the on-highway standards established by EPA in 2002. A major part of the annual research and engineering budget is dedicated to environmental fuel-efficiency improvements.
