Cummins expands natural gas supplies with a 15-liter engine

Cummins Inc. is importing 15 liters of natural gas engine sold in China to North America, and is expanding its supply of diesel for low-emission options.

Ships that require a larger displacement natural gas engine than the current 12-liter supply of Cummis could opt for a larger generator that could provide negative net zero carbon emissions if burned by renewable gas (RNG).

Cummins (NYSE: CMI) introduced a 15-liter natural gas engine in China last year. North American airline demand has enough food to sell here. The X15N will be built in Jemstown, New York, Cummins’ general manager and global natural gas business manager une Net Jahar told FreightWaves.

“In our discussions, many ships were interested in NG power, but they refused to accept the current 12L production,” said Steve Tam, vice president of AT Research. Expanding displacement options will provide these ships with what they need.

The 15-liter natural gas engine offers up to 500 horsepower and 1,850 pounds of steering. Compared to diesel-powered engines, it is expected to weigh up to 500 500 and does not require a selective stimulus reduction by 2024 after being ordered by California and Environmental Protection Agency regulators.

The road to low emissions

“Early adopters often include customers who use natural gas technology, which requires a large borehole engine to meet their operational goals and achieve their goals near zero or zero emissions,” Jawar said. Long-distance ships may be the first adoption of a 15-liter natural gas engine to reduce their carbon footprint and achieve sustainability goals.

For the Commissions, the largest displacement power plant is the latest move to zero emissions, including low-carbon fuels, renewable energy and hydrogen-powered diesel, natural gas, hydrogen engines, hybrids, battery power and fuel cells.

“This is one of the many ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions when it comes to renewable energy and battery and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles moving to zero emissions,” said Mike Roth, executive director of the North American Frescitives Council. FreightWaves.

‘Competitive Power Options’

Columbus, Indiana-based Cummins aims to target carbon emissions by 2030 by 2030 and 2050.

This is a big job for a company that produces more diesel engines than any other company. And he is choosing to do more work in the area by holding a mid-duty engine assembly for the Demerler truck, as well as for the Toyota sub-Hino trucks and the Isuzu motors for Japan.

According to the diesel technology forum, there were 11 million Class 3-8 diesel engines on the road in 2019.

“All is well,” said Allan Siefer, executive director of the forum, when asked about his ability to steal a 15-liter diesel engine. One thing he shows is the continued investment in diesel technology.

Although natural gas has very few emissions, it is a fossil fuel. The use of RNG instead of natural gas makes the carbon footprint invisible. When methane, which burns waste into the atmosphere, is trapped in a natural gas fuel system, the result is negative carbon dioxide.

“We believe this natural gas alternative for existing diesel power plants in heavy trucks is a competitive alternative to the game,” said Cummins Motor Business President.

Cummins is also the basis for the hydrogen-powered internal combustion engine 15 liters of natural gas.

In terms of marketing, the new supply will comply with Cummins’ plan, which is 50% of Russian oil technologies from Russian enterprises. The joint venture between Cummins and Russian Enterprises (NASDAQ: RUSHA) will produce Cummins-identified natural gas fuel supply systems for the North American commercial vehicle market.

Cummins’ 10-year partnership with Westport Petroleum Systems will be completed by the end of 2021.
