Cummins awarded major defense contract for Power Generation equipment
Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI) has been selected as one of two awardees that will develop, manufacture, test and produce generator sets in both the 500 kilowatt (kW) skid (MEPGS-10001) and Power Plants (PP) (MEPGS-35001) configurations to meet the electrical power needs for the Large Tactical Power System (LTPS) and the Department of Defense (DoD).
LTPS is a modernization program managed by the Product Lead, Large Power Systems (LPS), that will provide more mobile, reliable and logistically supportable tactical electric power sources for the DoD's 21st century digitized forces. The LTPS consists of dual 500 kilowatt (kW) generators, in a power plant configuration with distribution and switching to allow a single generator to be on while the other generator is off. Upon award of Phase I, two (2) contractors will deliver four (4) PP configurations for testing.
“We are excited and honored to be one of two contractors selected by the DoD for their LTPS programs. It is in direct reflection of our team’s persistence in innovation: to create the most reliable and logistically supportable power sources for the future of digitized forces” stated Doreen Swanson, Director of Government and Military Business for Cummins Power Generation.
Cummins has been developing and producing the 5kW - 60kW family of Advanced Medium Mobile Power Sources (AMMPS) for the DoD, as well as the 800kW Basic Expeditionary Airfield Resources, since 2013.
