Cummins secures key European turbocharger contracts

Cummins Turbo Technologies has announced it has secured four supply contracts for its Holset turbochargers, which combined are worth in excess of US$700 million.

The deals, which are with some of Europe’s major truck manufacturers – all of whom can’t yet be revealed due to client confidentiality, will see Euro 6 emissions compliant turbocharging solutions enter service with several world-renowned brands by the end of the year.

Charles Masters, Cummins Turbo Technologies exec director for global OEMs, said: “The necessity to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions levels means that manufacturers are increasingly looking towards turbocharging technology to help them achieve their goals.

“Advances in turbocharging technology continue to deliver these savings without compromising engine power, so we are delighted but not surprised that Cummins Turbo Technologies has been selected as a solution provider by some of the biggest names in trucking ahead of the introduction of Euro 6 regulations next year.”

Euro 6 legislation comes into force on 31 December 2013 and requires nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions to be reduced by 66% over Euro 5 levels (from 2.0 to 0.46 grams/kWh) and soot particle emissions cut by half (from 0.03 to just 0.01 gram/kWh) – sufficiently low levels to be described as ‘near-zero’.
