Partnership Produces Results for Customers and the Environment

Engineers at Cummins’ Darlington Engine Plant in the U.K. and their counterparts at the Hyster-Yale Group (HYG), a leading manufacturer of materials handling equipment, have produced some pretty impressive gains in fuel efficiency over the past six years.

Working together on nearly 20 projects, the partnership has delivered annual fuel savings in excess of 2 million gallons since the initiative started in 2010, with plans to top 4 million by the end of 2016.

Cummins-led Team to Develop Plug-in Hybrid that Reduces Fuel Use by 50 Percent

COLUMBUS, Ind., April 2016 - Cummins announced the company was awarded a $4.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop a Class 6 commercial plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that can reduce fuel consumption by at least 50 percent over conventional Class 6 vehicles.

When fully loaded, Class 6 vehicles weigh between approximately 19,000 and 26,000 pounds and typical examples include school buses or single axle work trucks.

A Whole Lot of Shaking Going On

Testing any generator to see if it will stand up to an earthquake is never easy...

...but if that generator weighs some 80,000 pounds and has an engine that’s 8 feet tall and 14 feet long, it’s especially challenging.

No wonder Cummins Power Generation employees were pleased to learn late last year that after months of planning, logistics and testing, the QSK95 generator set had passed the “shaker table test” for seismic certification.

Cummins Improves Fuel Efficiency In 2017 Engine Lineup

Cummins has received certification for its complete lineup of on-highway diesel and natural gas engines ahead of schedule from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), meeting both the current EPA regulations and the second step in greenhouse gas (GHG) and fuel-efficiency standards which take effect in January 2017.

Fuel efficiency is improved across the commercial vehicle engine lineup from 5.0 liters to 15 liters.

Redefining Tour Demonstrates How Cummins Delivers on its Mission

After driving most of the more than 76,000 miles covered during Cummins Redefining Tour, Mike Carlson said he’ll never think about fuel economy in quite the same way.

Hauling just over 60,000 pounds as part of the 36-city tour across North America to demonstrate some of the company’s latest technology, Carlson said he frequently got better than 9 miles per gallon in the tractor-trailer he drove for most of the tour while averaging better than 8 miles-per-gallon over the entire trip.
