Cummins Expands IMO Tier II Product Line

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

In anticipation of customer requests for mechanical engines meeting stringent next-level global emissions regulations, Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) has received a statement of compliance from the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) certifying the KTA19-D(M1) to IMO Tier II emissions standards. The 19-liter, in-line six cylinder auxiliary engine features the proven Cummins PT fuel system making it one of the few high horsepower Tier II certified engines with a mechanically controlled fuel system.

The KTA19-D(M1) fills a gap in the market for durable, reliable power without complex electronic controls. While major hardware remains unchanged from the current 19-liter mechanical product, timing adjustments allow for emissions reductions without significantly impacting fuel consumption.

Two ratings will initially be available for auxiliary applications: 425 kW (570 HP) @ 1800 RPM and 485 kW (650 HP) @ 1800 RPM. The K19-CP genset featuring this engine will also be available with the following ratings: 400, 450 and 460 kWe. In addition, marine society approvals are available from major classification societies worldwide. Production will begin in early 2010 at the Cummins Industrial Center in Seymour, Indiana.

The engine and genset package are covered by a comprehensive global one year warranty valid at authorized Cummins service outlets worldwide. It is also backed by Cummins industry-leading Mobile QuickServe program. Cummins QuickServe offers factory-certified technicians, the most sophisticated diagnostic and repair tools in the industry and the largest international parts and service network of any engine manufacturer.
