  • Cummins Inc. CMI received an award from the UK Government, provided through the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC), to play a significant role in de-carbonizing transport from 2025 onward.
  • The financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.
  • The Company’s hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engine (H2-ICE) program is beginning to develop a medium-duty 6.7-liter and a heavy-duty 15-liter engine.
  • The goal for the new hydrogen engines is to achieve zero carbon emissions, enhanced power density, and improved thermal efficiency.
  • The development of the 6.7-liter hydrogen engine will focus on medium-duty trucks, buses, and construction applications, such as excavators and wheel loaders. 
  • Cummins global technical centers will work together to achieve commercial viability for the H2-ICE project on a global basis. Part of the development work at the Cummins Darlington facility will be supported by a funding award recently received from the UK Government.
  • Cummins adds another vital resource in integrating the hydrogen engine with the high-pressure gas vessels and supply lines it makes through its JV, NPROXX, which are installed on the vehicle or the equipment. 
  • Price Action: CMI shares are trading higher by 2.85% at $227.93 on the last check Thursday.
