Utter Pradesh, India
Come, join us in our path towards Destination ZeroTM
As we enter the Amrit Kaal of independent India, Cummins Group in India is set to lay the foundation for India to become self-reliant and energy independent. Sharing the nation’s vision of Net Zero by 2070, as laid out by Panch Amrit Tattva, Cummins Group in India will demonstrate commitment towards decarbonization at the industry’s largest Auto Trade show – Auto Expo. Destination Zero is our company’s strategy to go further, faster to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) and air quality impacts of its products and reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
With Destination Zero, we are working to reduce emissions today, advancing engine-based solutions and investing in the right technologies at the right time with a deep understanding of our customers as we work to decarbonize our industry in a way that is best for all stakeholders.
With a deep application expertise, we are uniquely positioned to deliver solutions that fit the needs of commercial applications. Cummins’ Destination Zero strategy will be demonstrated at Auto Expo 2023 through a wide array of products ranging from fuel generation to the latest technology of powertrain.
At the upcoming Auto Expo, Cummins Group in India will exhibit:
An industry-first fuel agnostic platform
Cummins will showcase its fuel agnostic platform, demonstrating a practical way to reduce emissions now using technology that OEMs, fleet managers and operators are familiar with.
As we move towards decarbonization, we would need to work upon multiple technologies leveraging the currently available options of low and zero carbon fuels. This will provide options to the end users and give flexibility of adoption of them based on infrastructure availability, needs of the transport operations and yet optimizing economics of the transportation.
The fuel-agnostic architecture utilizes a common base engine with cylinder heads and fuel systems specifically tailored to fuel ranging from diesel, natural gas, renewable natural gas, and hydrogen. The platform offers OEMs common engine architecture across multiple fuel types resulting to a high degree of parts commonality.
At the Auto Expo 2023, our fuel-agnostic platform concept will be demonstrated through:
Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine
Part of the fuel agnostic platform is what could become the most practical to reaching zero-carbon emissions for medium- and heavy-duty truck manufacturers – Cummins’ hydrogen internal combustion engine. When paired with green hydrogen, this engine produces zero well-to-wheel CO2 emissions. Cummins will display solutions addressing the medium- and heavy-duty trucks and buses, highlighting the technology’s ability to support decarbonization across multiple duty-cycles.
Natural Gas Engine
Natural gas engines help lower emissions and reduce a vehicle’s overall environmental impact without sacrificing the performance needed to get the job done. Natural gas engines are also the most mature, proven and least disruptive alternative power technology available today. Natural gas infrastructure is available and accelerates the government vision of increasing natural gas share in energy mix from 6% to 15% by 2030. Significant investments are already planned to build the infrastructure both on CNG and LNG, and this technology will help achieve the government’s vision.
Latest generation diesel
With a foundation of almost 700,000 Euro VI, low-emission engines supplied, Cummins plans to showcase its latest-generation advanced diesel platform. Cummins’ advanced diesel engines give customers the opportunity to reduce emissions alongside significant improvements in power and torque.
Electrolyzer (for green H2 generation)
Electrolyzer takes the water as input and splits it into Hydrogen and Oxygen as output. When supplied with Renewable energy the H2 generated is called as green H2 since the process doesn’t have any carbon footprint. Cummins has supplied and commissioned more than 600 electrolyzers worldwide with PEM and alkaline technologies. Cummins will be displaying a modular variant of the state-of-the-art electrolyzer-stack technology.
Pegged as the technology of the future, Cummins Group in India will also be displaying a range of zero-emissions power solutions. With over a century of experience as a global power leader, Cummins is solidifying its commitment to providing a comprehensive zero-emissions technology through new technologies.
Electric powertrain technology
Cummins recently announced its acquisition of Meritor, a leading global supplier of drivetrain, mobility, braking and electric powertrain technologies. The addition of Meritor strengthens Cummins’ industry-leading range of powertrain components and will enable accelerated development of electrified power solutions. Together, Cummins and Meritor will move further and faster in developing economically viable decarbonized powertrain solutions that advance Cummins’ Destination Zero strategy. Meritor products will be displayed on the Cummins booth for the first time at Auto Expo 2023. The technologies being showcased under the ambit of ‘electric powertrain’ include:
Hydrogen fuel cell
Cummins’ latest generation fuel cell engine will showcase the rapid evolution of our zero-emissions technologies. For customers that need and want to reach zero greenhouse gas emissions today hydrogen fuel cells would be an apt solution when supplied with green H2 as fuel. Building on the deployments of more than 2,000 fuel cells globally for various applications including bus, truck, stationery power and railways, this next generation product provides improved power density, efficiency and durability and is available in single and dual module engines for both medium- and heavy-duty vehicles.
Drawing on deep duty cycle and application experience, Cummins has developed the new gen battery pack solutions. Cummins will showcase multiple batteries that help the customers to reach zero-emissions today. These batteries are with distinct chemistries, form factors for meeting the needs of variety of applications in the market. Cummins batteries are equipped with advance Battery Management System (BMS) for monitoring various critical battery parameters, diagnostics and improve the battery life & performance.
