Tata Cummins Green Energy unveils Jamshedpur plant for Hydrogen-ICE engines for M&HCV, low-emission tech

Tata Cummins Green Energy Solutions (TCPL GES), a subsidiary of the Tata Motors-Cummins Inc. joint venture Tata Cummins Private Limited (TCPL), inaugurated a new manufacturing plant on Wednesday. 

The facility, located in Jamshedpur and spanning nearly seven acres, will produce hydrogen-powered internal combustion engines for medium and heavy commercial vehicles, alongside other low-to-zero emission technologies.

Girish Wagh, Executive Director of Tata Motors, said, “Tata Motors’ established legacy of nation-building, innovations, and industry firsts gains further momentum with the opening of this new-age manufacturing facility. The hydrogen-based powertrain aggregates and systems produced here will shape the future of mobility in India, making it smarter and greener. We remain committed to partnering with our customers to build a better tomorrow by enabling them to progressively adopt emission free and commercially viable solutions for cargo and people mobility.”

Ashwath Ram, Managing Director, Cummins Group in India, said, “Cummins has always believed in bringing the right technology that powers the success of our customers at the right time. Our commitment to manufacturing advanced low- to zero-emissions technology products that advance decarbonization isn't just a promise; it's a responsibility we embrace and is backed by concrete action. Powered by our global expertise, strategic partnership, and technological capabilities, we are making steady progress on our Destination Zero strategy."

Tata Motors and Cummins have a 30-year strong partnership in India through their joint venture, Tata Cummins Private Limited (TCPL). TCPL GES, a subsidiary of TCPL, was formed in March 2023 to collaborate on the design and development of low- and zero-emission propulsion technology solutions for commercial vehicles in India. These technologies and solutions will be deployed in a variety of applications and will play a pivotal role in developing sustainable powertrain solutions that will help to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, and support India's net-zero ambitions.

The development comes even as Tata Motors had in October last year  unveiled two state-of-the-art & new-age R&D facilities in October last year towards the development of  sustainable mobility solutions. The unveilings comprise an engine test cell for the development of a hydrogen internal combustion engine and the necessary infrastructure for the storage and dispensing of hydrogen fuel for the fuel cell and H2ICE vehicles.
