Cummins East Asia R&D Center’s New Base
On November 25, 2022, the new base of Cummins East Asia R&D Center was opened, with an investment of 250 million US dollars to build, involving both traditional and new energy power, and collaborating with global technological innovation resources to develop low carbon to zero-carbon diversified power products for customers. Cummins showcased a new high-efficiency diesel engine, China emission standard phase VI natural gas clean power, a multi-fuel engine platform compatible with cleaner fuels such as biodiesel and hydrogenated vegetable oil (HVO), a forward-looking high-power fuel cell HD240, a hydrogen internal combustion engine 15H and a zero-carbon concept heavy truck equipped with 15H, and a low-carbon and environmentally friendly Cummins integrated powerchain product (15N natural gas engine + DCEC Endurant HD™ AMT + Meritor axle).
Cummins has started business in China since 1975, Cummins has six engine joint ventures in China, four in the commercial vehicle field, Cummins implements FFM (Adapt to Market) and FFA (Adapt to Application) strategies, for different customers, different market applications and different working conditions for different customized development, to provide users with customized calibration and performance power solutions, can play the best performance in different working scenarios.
As a diversified power provider, Cummins has committed to reducing 25% life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions of new products since 2030, and make efforts with customers to reduce 55 million tons greenhouse gas emissions from in engines products, in meanwhile reducing carbon emissions by 50% across all of Cummins' own global operations and manufacturing sites. Achieve full carbon neutrality by 2050.
After more than 100 years of continuous iterative upgrading, Cummins diesel power classic products have emerged one after another, customizing and developing power solutions for different markets, different application models and working scenarios around the world. In recent years, in addition to striving for excellence in the field of traditional power, Cummins' layout in the field of new energy power has also attracted much attention from the outside world. At the end of 2019, Cummins established the New Energy Power Division (a merger of the previous electric power and hydrogen businesses). On the one hand, Cummins is deeply involved in the new energy field through acquisitions and mergers (for example, in 2019, through the acquisition of Hydrogenics, it has proton exchange membrane and alkaline water electrolysis hydrogen production technology, product and service capabilities; Another example is the recent acquisition of Siemens Commercial Vehicle Systems business through Meritor to enhance its electric drive system capabilities); On the other hand, Cummins is tireless in the research and development of new energy technology, always striving to achieve its own zero carbon emissions (it is understood that Cummins spends about $1 billion a year on technology research and development, of which a considerable part is invested in the field of new energy).
