During a time when the world has gone digital, Cummins Marine wants to meet you in your new workplace: your home, office, shipyard or even boat.
On April 14, Cummins will host the Cummins Marine Virtual Showcase, an online event, to unveil the launch of three new products. But this digital showcase doesn’t even begin to scrape the surface of the innovation stirring within the hull. We’re making big waves, and here’s four reasons you won’t want to miss it.
Cummins is putting emissions standards first, for you and for the environment.
Cummins Marine is delivering its second Tier 4 solution – the QSK60 EPA Tier 4 / IMO III engine. Built on the proven performance of the QSK60, the new Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system provides innovation and dependability in a fuel- and cost-efficient package.
“In today’s world, and the marine industry, we are facing increasing demands to deliver products that not only get the job done, but do it in a sustainable manner. Cummins Marine can only flourish if we commit to innovative solutions that are friendly to the environment and also provide our customers with cost efficient options,” Rachel Bridges, Global Marine Director.
But don’t forget about the QSK38 Tier 4 / IMO III solution that we launched at the International Workboat Show in 2019. With a year of experience under its belt, this package has delivered 9,000+ hours to a towboat on the Ohio River.
How does a Cummins hydrogen-powered boat work?
This will now be possible thanks to Cummins hydrogen fuel cells that are being integrated into North America’s first commercial hydrogen fuel cell-powered, zero emissions ferry (ZEF).
Fuel cells are supplied with hydrogen from storage tanks creating electricity to run the electric motors and turn the vessels propellers, generating the ferry’s movement. With the ZEF only producing water and electricity as a by-product, it’s 100% emissions free.
Showcasing the latest hydrogen fuel cell technologies, the vessel, named “Sea Change,” marks another crucial milestone in the commercialization of zero emissions marine vessel power.
Real-time diagnostics for mariners powered by Cummins.
The expectations of consumers have changed. Simply delivering a quality product — whether that’s an engine, a part, a power system, or digital application — isn’t enough. Today, people demand experiences that are personalized, informative, and engaging.
In today’s digital world, most consumers are accustomed to having instant updates and access to data via their smartphone, tablet or laptop. On the road, you can get remote engine monitoring and reporting of potential performance issues using alerts.
Now, you can have that same access out on the water with Cummins designed solution, PrevenTech. This integrated digital solution will be available for marine applications throughout North America beginning in mid-2021.
A military boat that can rollover, but an engine manufacturer that never will.
When the US Coast Guard developed their 47-foot surf boat in the late 1990s, it set a new standard for lifeboats. The first engine-powered boats allowed decks and cabins that afforded a greater level of safety.
The indominable nature of the “rollover boat” is its ability to self-right itself if overturned. Not only will the boat turn right side up, but it will do so with both main engines running and ready to drive the boat ahead. This was a tall order for any engine that would hope to qualify, and two Cummins QSC8.3 engines met that challenge.
Cummins Marine heritage dates back to the Company’s beginnings in 1919. Our legacy of providing reliable, innovative products to meet the durability and performance needs of marine applications hasn’t changed.
Speakers will include Director of Marine Operations, Scott Malindzak; Director of New Initiatives, Ryan Sookhoo; Product Manager, Carlos Ortega; Product Manager, Michael LeNeave; President of Tucker Yacht Design, Micah Tucker; and President of Birdon Americas, Jim Ducker.
