GLOBAL EMISSIONS CAPABILITY FROM CUMMINS
18 October 2007
Kortrijk, Belgium (October 18, 2007) - Cummins displays a range of engines and technologies at Busworld (stand PAV4-8), capable of meeting global emissions requirements.
On show will be a range of ultra low emissions technologies, all available from Cummins Inc. These include Cummins Variable Geometry Turbocharging, Diesel Particulate Filtration, Exhaust Gas Re-circulation, Selective Catalytic Reduction and Engine Filtration alongside the latest high specification gas product, the ISL-G engines.
Neil Pattison, Automotive Sales Director for EMEA says, "Cummins portfolio of products is unique in the industry, and enables OEMs to source complete air intake to exhaust pipe packages, tailored to their needs. Each package is developed to provide the best levels of fuel economy, reliability, durability with lowest operating costs."
At Busworld, Cummins ISBe will be exhibited as a Euro 5 unit for the first time. Using SCR technology, Euro 5 has been achieved with minimal impact from Euro 4. The integrated engine and aftertreatment system, all managed by the engine control module, is driving major benefits to the vehicle operator. Fuel economy is significantly improved and service intervals are dramatically increased along with vehicle availability/up-time.
Cummins B Series platform, of which the ISBe is the latest edition, has built a reputation in the bus industry for reliability and durability with low running costs. The engine has now been developed to give flexibility to meet emissions from Euro 2 to Euro 5.
It can be produced in a number of locations around the world, where Euro emissions are applicable, to meet local market and environmental requirements. It will also be the base engine on which the Euro 6 specification is developed, once the requirements are finalised.
"Our global technical and manufacturing presence puts us in an ideal position to support both the developed and emerging markets, providing the optimum balance between value and emissions. Bus manufacturers and operators can specify the ISBe with confidence, wherever they operate," adds Pattison.
Cummins Inc. is the world's largest independent manufacturer of diesel engines and related components. With over 30,000 employees, Cummins reported sales of $11.4 billion in 2006 and produced over 833,000 engines. Headquartered in Columbus, Indiana, (USA) Cummins serves customers in more than 160 countries through its network of 550 company-owned and independent distributor facilities and more than 5,000 dealer locations.
