Cummins India announces its Power Generation product line, compliant with new CPCB II norms

 Subsequent to the recent amendment of the Environment (Protection) Rules, 1986 by the Central Government published in the Gazette of India vide number G.S.R. 771 (E), Cummins India Ltd., the Country's leading manufacturer of diesel and natural gas engines for power generation, industrial and automotive applications, unveils a series of generator sets that are compliant with the new environmental norms (CPCB II), to be implemented by the Central Pollution Control Board in India. Working ahead of the lowered emissions implementation dates, the Company is at the forefront of releasing fuel-efficient and smartly-designed auxiliary power solutions.

The amended rules mandate all manufacturers, importers or assemblers of diesel generator sets in India to comply with the cleaner emission standards, for products up to 800 kilowatt.

Recognizing the importance of adhering to cleaner standards and the necessity of upgrading the emission norms for the betterment of the environment, the Company has already commenced production of the new series of generator sets at its plant in Pirangut in Maharashtra. So far, nearly 50 units have been field tested, successfully operating for more than 6,000 hours at customer sites across India. The new series of generator sets are equipped with after-treatment systems that feature the most advanced exhaust emission-reduction technologies available today, not only exceeding the mandated emission standards, but also offering improved energy efficiencies. In addition, technological innovation has eliminated the need for diesel particulate filters by deploying a high-pressure fuel injection system that significantly optimizes fuel efficiency.

Anant J. Talaulicar, Managing Director, Cummins Group in India, said, “Cummins welcomes and endorses the positive measures taken by the Ministry of Environment and Forests in its commitment to improving air quality. Cummins’ advanced research and development and leadership positions in the wide spectrum of markets that we serve in the United States, Europe and other parts of the world, along with our over fifty-year legacy in India allow us to bring market competitive products that comply with regulations and norms in India.”

According to Mahesh Narang, Chief Operating Officer, Cummins Group in India, “A dedicated team of over 100 engineers from around the world have collaborated in designing the emission-compliant products. The newly designed products are a result of the Company’s continuous focus on product and technology innovation, reiterating Cummins’ commitment to providing its customers the most superior and dependable solutions, alongside a strong after-market support. Innovations that bring economic benefit to customers while adhering to environmental regulations have been the hallmark of Cummins Power Generation product line.”

Amit Kumar, Vice President, Power Generation Business, Cummins India Limited, further added, “Against the backdrop of rising power deficit in India, Cummins continues to endeavor to manufacture advanced and fuel-efficient power solutions keeping in mind the demands of the domestic market. Cummins Power Generation is amongst the frontrunners in the industry, with its CPCB II emission-ready generator sets, which have been successfully operating in challenging environments, as proven by the field tests conducted across 50 customer locations in India.”
