Pune, India — Cummins has recently successfully completed the Bharat Stage-VI (BS-VI) emission standard compliance certification tests with the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI).
India will move to BS-VI emission regulations from April 1, 2020 and true to its brand promise of Innovation and Dependability, Cummins India showcased its BS-VI emission compliant engines, turbocharger technologies, and exhaust after-treatment technologies and solutions for BS-VI compliant engines ahead of time at the AutoExpo 2018.
Mr. Ashwath Ram, Managing Director, Cummins India, said, “It is our constant endeavor to power our customers through innovation & dependability along with an appropriate strategy that addresses market requirements. Cummins has always been the front-runner with the BS-VI engine technology and it gives us immense pleasure to complete the BS-VI Certification tests with Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) ahead of time”.
He further added, “Cummins Engines with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) aftertreatment system have been pioneering clean air technologies in the country since their launch in the BS-IV era in April 2017. The vast experience Cummins has in the Indian market clubbed with proven engine and emissions technologies, gives us an edge in the BS-VI regime where the entire diesel industry will be adopting that technology. Cummins is a leading technology partner and we are confident that we will be the enabler for the technological shift from BS-IV to BS-VI in a short span of time.”
Globally more than 1 million Euro6/BS-VI equivalent and higher emission vehicles are running with Cummins engine and aftertreatment system. All the major commercial vehicle OEMs across the world have selected SCR technology to meet new and upcoming BS-VI emission standards.
Cummins is a preferred engine and after-treatment solution provider for leading Indian CV OEMs has adopted the globally proven SCR technology, since 2014 Cummins has provided solutions for medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicles ranging from 130 HP to 400 HP. Cummins SCR technology allows engines to operate at a more optimal combustion temperature providing better fuel efficiency with lower NOx and particulate matter generation. At the BS-VI stage, Cummins added DPF and DOC aftertreatment technologies to achieve additional robustness and margins on particulate matter, hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen.
A number of patents have been filed during the development of our BS-VI technologies, giving us a proven advantage over the competition.
Cummins offers integrated engine and aftertreatment systems to its customers, ensuring optimal system performance and reliability. Cummins is also vertically integrated with the capability to design and manufacture critical engine and aftertreatment components and sub-systems. Cummins’ engines and engine-systems are enabled with connected solutions for optimized performance at all times and easy prognostics and diagnostics.
