Cummins expands offering with QSK50 Tier 4 dual fuel for the oil and gas market
Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) is expanding their offering to the oil and gas market with the addition of dual fuel capabilities to their QSK50 Tier 4 product.
“Our QSK50 Tier 4 dual fuel engine offers our well servicing customers the ability to save on their fuel costs and improve emissions while maintaining performance,” said Jenny Bush, Vice President, Cummins Sales & Service North America. “Expanding on the QSK50 product line, a staple in the oil and gas industry supports our commitment to deliver the products our customers need to be successful.”
Cummins’ dual fuel solution will feature integrated controls, permitting a seamless transition from diesel fuel to dual fuel operation. When the engine is operating in dual fuel mode, natural gas is introduced into the intake system, reducing diesel consumption while maintaining power density, torque, and transient response as the base diesel engine. This EPA Tier 4 offering also demonstrates a reduction in diesel exhaust emissions and overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions over its EPA Tier 2 predecessor.
The Cummins dual fuel solution is achieved via a kit of dual fuel components integrated with the QSK50 Tier 4 final engine. The kit will be available for first fit solutions and as a retrofittable solution to existing QSK50 Tier 4 final engines. Either solution will provide the customer flexibility in their operations, and deliver an improved total cost of ownership that customers have come to expect with a Cummins solution.
