Cummins Inc., a manufacturer of diesel engines and generator sets for the marine industry, has launched a new Onan marine U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 3-certified generator, the 55-kW MDDCM.
“The expansion of our EPA Tier 3 marine product lineup to 55 kW with the MDDCM provides our customers a higher power option in a more environmentally-friendly product than previously available from Cummins Onan,” explained Brian Barnes, Marketing Leader, Onan Marine.
The MDDCM joins the company's Tier 3-certified marine product line, which includes engines from 6.7 to 50 liters and generators from 17 to 55 kW. Cummins Tier 3-certified engines 19 liters and below and Onan marine generators also meet future U.S. emissions requirements, and will be available for the foreseeable future.
The 55-kW Onan marine generator was engineered for lower emissions and some of the best sound and vibration mitigation in the industry while still delivering the renowned reliability and durability that marine operators have come to expect from Cummins. All Onan marine generators, including the MDDCM, feature advanced sound shields for lower sound and an optimized mounting system for reduced vibration. Plus, all are available with a Cummins Onan digital display for user-friendly diagnostics, including extensive engine and alternator information, self-diagnostic features and text display.
The MDDCM is fully integrated and factory-assembled at the Cummins Power Generation facility in Fridley, Minn., and will be available for order in late March 2016. It is backed by a five-year limited warranty, available with extended warranty options, and is supported by Cummins global distributor and dealer network.
