Global technical centre for high-power engines

July 3rd, 2014, Published in Articles: Energize

 

Cummins has begun construction of a global technical centre for its high-power engine business co-located within the Seymour Engine Plant in close proximity to 22 test cells dedicated to engine research and development work for mining, rail, oil and gas, marine, power generation and industrial applications. The technical centre and the ongoing expansion of the manufacturing plant at the company’s facility represent a major investment of over $250-million. The technical centre will become the global focal point for Cummins engine development and low-emissions technology for 19- to 120-litre engine platforms. Close working connections will be maintained with the company’s worldwide engineering community at other high-power sites in the United States, the United Kingdom, China and India. A significant landmark will be achieved later this year with the production start-up of the QSK95, initially for locomotive and power generation applications. The QSK95, which produces 3281 kW, will be the most powerful engine ever built by Cummins.
