Cummins builds new marine partner network
In its latest marine partnership, Cummins has teamed up with Danfoss Power Solutions’ Editron division to bring hybrid marine solutions to the global maritime market.
The partners will develop a set of standard solutions for marine propulsion including both engines and fuel cells along with variable-speed diesel gensets and energy storage packages.
In December, Cummins signed a framework agreement with Energys, an Australia-based hydrogen and fuel cell company, to work together on fuel cell powerhouse packages for marine and power generation, and it has now also signed an MoU with energy storage solutions provider Leclanché. This MOU enables Cummins and Leclanché to offer customers a wide range of hybrid, battery-only and fuel cell package solutions in marine and rail applications using a variety of power sources such as engines, hydrogen fuel cells, battery packs and racks, as well as other components.
