Cummins Announces Support for EPA Final Marine Engine Rule

Tuesday, March 18, 2008

 

Cummins Inc., on behalf of the Engine Manufacturers Association (EMA) affirmed the industry’s support of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Final Marine Engine Rule. Geoff Conrad, Cummins General Manager  Marine, made the announcement at a press conference hosted by the EPA.
The Final Marine Engine Rule is intended to reduce emissions from diesel-fuelled engines installed in marine vessels and locomotives. The legislation completes a series of national emissions standards that apply to diesel engines used for a range of major applications.
Due to the unique installation requirements of both marine and locomotive applications, as well as the resources and infrastructure in place to service these markets, Cummins and the EMA worked closely with the EPA on the development of the legislation and its implementation schedule.
Industry experts and marine designers were enlisted to perform a thorough analysis of the ruling’s impact on both the design and operation of a vessel to ensure the industry could continue to operate while achieving a meaningful reduction of emissions.
With the implementation of this rule, clean diesel is no longer an oxymoron, but a proven, efficient, cost-effective and clean technology that powers our nation’s economy, Conrad said. This rule establishes difficult stretch goals for the industry, but we are prepared to meet the challenge.
