Cummins sees electrification as growth area

Cummins envisages that emerging technology developments will lead to growth in its business, company executives have asserted.

Electrification, alternative fuels and power solutions, as well as digital capabilities, data and analytics, will all be areas that will only continue to increase in significance.

"As a global power leader for the commercial and industrial markets we serve, we are better positioned than any other company to win in new and emerging technologies," said Tom Linebarger, Cummins chairman and CEO.

"Over the past 100 years, our ability to innovate and adapt has fueled our success and we are confident we are on the right path to do it again at this critical juncture. We are prepared to provide a range of power technologies to our customers from diesel and natural gas to fully electric and hybrid powertrains to ensure they always have the best solution for their application."

The company is to start delivery of electrified powertrains by 2019, including battery electric and plug-in hybrids. It is also exploring opportunities to partner with other firms to ensure developments in energy storage, power electronics, traction motor systems and component control for commercial applications.
