Diesel and gas engine major Cummins has completed Bharat Stage IV (CEV) emission standard certification tests for its new 4.5-litre engine system, at the International Centre for Automotive technology (ICAT).
This the company says is much ahead of the new emission norms implementation deadline of April 1, 2021 for the wheeled equipment (wheel loader, backhoe loaders, compactor, harvester and paver among others). Cummins says the engine can easily be scaled up to BS-V emission norms and beyond.
Commenting on the certification, Ashwath Ram, MD, Cummins India said, “Cummins’ mission is to make people’s lives better by powering a more prosperous world. The prosperous world requires a vibrant, healthy planet. As India looks to boost its economy through infrastructure growth, we are all set to evolve from mechanical to new generation, fully electronic engine systems. These new engines systems will be powered by Cummins’ best-in-class, globally-proven technology and will ensure higher uptime, better TCO, easy installation and cleaner emissions and hence will deliver superior value to end-users.”
Anjali Pandey, VP – Engine Business and Components Business, Cummins India added “Tough jobs demand tougher equipment, and no one makes tougher construction engines systems than Cummins. Our construction engines are known for their durability and reliability, producing more responsive power delivery with minimal maintenance costs. Thus, translating to maximum uptime and best TCO for our customers. This new four cylinder, 4.5L CEV BSIV, compliant engine system will further help us enhance our presence in the Construction segment while meeting stringent emissions standards and providing value to our customers.”
