“This partnership is another step in Cummins’ Destination Zero strategy — our plan to achieve net-zero emissions for all of our products by 2050,” said Rachel Bridges, Global Marine Director, Cummins Inc. Cummins’ respective products and Danfoss are an ideal fit because both companies are focused on energy optimization, efficiency and clean solutions. By providing a common solution, we can multiply our impact by bringing products and solutions to market that are fully optimized for the marine industry. Our customers are looking for optimized ways to meet complex regulations and decarbonization targets and together with Danfoss Editron division we can help the marine industry.”
The agreement between Danfoss’ Editron division and Cummins will facilitate the decarbonization of the marine industry. The goal of the International Maritime Organization is to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions across the shipping industry by 40% by 2030 compared to 2008 levels. New local and regional regulations and certifications are being enacted to encourage shipping companies to switch to hybrid and all-electric solutions. To meet these evolving goals, organizations are challenged to transform their entire operational profile.
Cummins and Danfoss Editron division will develop a range of standard marine propulsion solutions, focusing on a new generation of variable speed diesel gensets, fuel cells and energy storage packages. The new standard hybrid-electric solution could reduce CO2 emissions by up to 100% compared to traditional diesel alternatives, depending on the operational profile and selected energy sources.
Erno Tenhunen, Marine Director of Danfoss Editron Division, said: “We are delighted to officially partner with Cummins following the successful implementation of our joint prototype projects. We were inspired by customers who demanded joint solutions from our companies and expected further standardization of products and solutions. Through this partnership, we are making it easier for all marine stakeholders to decarbonize their operations. We will deliver a complex, tailor-made system and use the integration work in a more organized and systematized way by offering our customers a single point of contact.”
