Cummins: 37,000 EPA 2010-certified engines shipped

Posted on October 18, 2010

Cummins announced the shipment of nearly 37,000 EPA 2010-certified engines with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) aftertreatment since their introduction in January.

Engine shipment volumes and early customer experiences have further confirmed the company's confidence in SCR to not only meet today's near-zero Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) standards, but to also deliver significant fuel economy improvements and to serve as a foundation for future clean-diesel developments to meet greenhouse gas and fuel-efficiency regulations.

Cummins has manufactured and shipped nearly 37,000 EPA 2010-certified engines to customers across North America through the end of September. Cummins engine plants in Jamestown, N.Y.; Rocky Mount, N.C.; and Columbus, Ind., serve over 60 customers who deliver clean-diesel-powered vehicles to America.

Customer feedback also confirms the benefits of Cummins integrated engine and aftertreatment systems, including its ISX15, with reports validating that the engines are delivering up to 6 percent better fuel economy as compared with their EPA 2007 counterparts.
