Cummins has always been the technology partner of choice for engine and this initiative is aimed at educating and upskilling our stakeholders with the latest engine and after treatment technologies and its benefits. Cummins will hold hands with its partners in the technology journey build a cleaner and prosperous India,” added the Cummins India boss. 

Installed inside each of these vans is an actual Cummins BS VI engine with cutaway sections of engine parts and SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system. It also houses the Cummins Single Module After-treatment system to give the audience a real touch and feel experience of the Cummins technology. The training van is equipped with LCD TVs to impart information and training videos for the Cummins BS VI engines.
