Columbus, Ind.–(business wire) – Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI) is showcasing its platform of zero-emissions technologies this week at the world’s largest mobility show, the IAA Transportation Show, in Hanover, Germany. A range of new Cummins technologies and the recently acquired Meritor ePowertrain technologies are publicly available together for the first time. With over a century of experience as a global power leader, Cummins is reinforcing its commitment to providing comprehensive zero-emissions technology globally.
“Cummins has deep application expertise, and we are uniquely positioned to deliver solutions that truly meet the needs of commercial applications,” said Amy Davis, New Power’s vice president and president at Cummins. “Realizing a near-zero future will require multiple technologies. Our comprehensive zero-emissions portfolio is how we will meet the demands of diverse customers in the toughest industries and make the energy transition possible.”
A major zero-emissions product revealed at Cummins IAA is its fourth generation hydrogen fuel cell engine. Designed to meet the duty-cycle, performance and packaging requirements of medium and heavy duty trucks and buses, fuel cell technology is available in 135 kW single and 270 kW dual modules.
Scania in Europe and Daimler Trucks in North America have each announced a collaboration with Cummins to develop and integrate these next generation fuel cell engines into demonstrator vehicles. The systems use fourth generation variable pressure technology to provide high power density, power nodes and operating temperatures for easy system integration into vehicles. They also have strong operational cycle efficiency and durability for a low total cost of ownership.
Amy Adams, Vice President of Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Technologies at Cummins, said, “We know that our customers have diverse needs and complex duty cycles to support, which is why we focus on continuous innovation and improvement. ” “We are developing hydrogen fuel cell technology that demonstrates the potential and flexibility to meet or exceed the power requirements for on-highway commercial vehicles – hydrogen as a viable solution to decarbonize economy proves it.”
IAA attendees will also get a first glimpse of the newly introduced Cummins Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) battery pack, Meritor’s 17xe ePowertrain and the drivetrain assembled with Meritor’s Power Control and Accessory System (PCAS). Cummins recently added e-Powertain and PCAS solutions to its portfolio through the acquisition of Meritor. ePowertrain leverages market-leading technologies in axle, motor and inverter, delivering performance, efficiency and packaging advantages at a competitive cost. Additionally, PCAS provides control and power where necessary of subsystems required while reducing packaging size and simplifying integration.
Cummins is adding an LFP battery to its line of lithium-ion battery products to expand support for electrified commercial vehicle applications. The LFP solution gives customers access to fast charging and long-lasting batteries, targeting the medium-duty truck and school bus markets. Using a multi-chemistry strategy, Cummins is positioned to further expand its manufacturing capacity and diversify its supply chain, providing customers with more cost-effective electrification solutions.
“We are giving customers the option to rapidly optimize for a zero-emissions future,” said Brian Wilson, general manager of electrified components at Cummins. “With the recent acquisition of Meritor and our new multi-chemistry approach, we will be able to design our solutions and offer a one-stop-shop for customers’ powertrain needs.”
Cummins’ portfolio includes four batteries, each targeting a different duty cycle and use case and complementing each other. In addition to the LFP option, it includes three nickel manganese cobalt (NMC) batteries – BP95E, BP74E and BP30E. The BP95E is Cummins’ next generation solution that prioritizes higher energy densities in applications for customers that require more weight-sensitive solutions or have longer ranges. The BP30E is ideal for meeting the demanding and rigorous demands of confined-space applications, and the BP74E is the foundation of Cummins’ BEV innovation and progress.
