Doosan Portable Power Prepares for Tier 4 Emissions Compliance with Cummins Engines
MINNEAPOLIS, July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Cummins Power Generation Inc., a division of Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI), announced that Doosan Infracore Portable Power has selected Cummins to provide diesel engines for its portable generator line. The Cummins engines will enable Doosan to comply with the Tier 4 emission regulations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Tier 4 is the strictest EPA emissions requirement for off-highway diesel engines. The regulations set specific limits on the amount of pollutants, specifically oxides of nitrogen and particulate matter that can be released into the environment. The requirements are part of the federal Clean Air Act, whose purpose is to reduce air pollution because of its hazards to human health and the environment. In May 2004, as part of its Clean Diesel Program, the EPA finalized a comprehensive rule to reduce emissions from nonroad diesel engines. The rule consists of four tiers of emission standards; Tier 4, the final stage, is being implemented in two phases, Tier 4 Interim and Tier 4 Final.
Doosan Portable Power has successfully integrated Cummins’ 6.7- and 9-liter engines into its product array, and continues to work on the 4.5-liter integration. The depth and breadth of the Cummins product line was just one factor in Doosan’s choice of suppliers. According to George Iarca, Cummins’ North America Engine sales and marketing manager, “The technology and quality of our product were deciding factors in Doosan’s decision. Meeting stringent emission requirements and providing a seamless transition for customers have been challenging for both engine and equipment manufacturers. Yet, our engine technology allows us to meet the emission requirements, while still providing an efficient, robust and reliable solution.”
“The overall Cummins value package proved to be the best solution for Doosan Portable Power,” added Iarca. “Part of the package includes 24/7 access to high-quality product support, which is a compelling advantage. We are delighted Doosan chose Cummins to help them meet their interim and final Tier 4 needs.”
The local Cummins distributor, Cummins Atlantic, played an integral role in orchestrating the sale to Doosan. In characterizing the relationship, Vice President of Sales and Marketing Phillip Bush noted, “Doosan has been an excellent customer for us, and it’s a privilege to have the opportunity to work with their portable generator products. The quality of their people and their culture are a good match with Cummins and we appreciate the fact that they hold suppliers, like Cummins, to very high standards.”
