Ahead of IMO Tier II implementation in January 2011, Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) announced their complete IMO Tier II product offering which will includes products with both mechanically and electronically controlled fuel systems to meet a variety of customer needs.
Quantum System MCRS engines are already certified to EPA Tier 2, EU Stage IIIa and IMO Tier
II emissions standards. In anticipation of customer requests for mechanical engines meeting next-level global emissions regulations, the company has also begun developing Tier II ratings for their K Series product line. The 19, 38 and 50 liter engines feature the proven Cummins PT fuel system, making them some of the few high horsepower Tier II certified engines with a mechanically controlled fuel system.
The Tier II certified K Series fills a gap in the market for durable, reliable power without complex electronic controls. While major hardware remains unchanged from the current mechanical product, timing adjustments allow for emissions reductions without significantly impacting fuel consumption. In addition, marine society approvals are available from major classification societies worldwide.
Prime Power ratings on the K19-DM and Continuous ratings K38-M are already available, with additional ratings scheduled for availability between June – October 2011 to include:
K19-M 447 kW (600 HP) @1800 RPM Continuous Duty
