Aug 18, 2023 | Leading Companies in China | 0 comments

Recently, Cummins signed a letter of intent with Taylor Machine Works Inc., a leading manufacturer of heavy-duty forklifts in the United States, to include Cummins 6.7-liter and 15-liter hydrogen internal combustion engines in Taylor’s product plan. The collaboration will help relevant industries meet their decarbonization targets, including industrial steel, wood products, concrete, oil and gas, and ports.

For ninety-six years, Taylor has been committed to meeting the material handling needs of industrial customers around the world, with a focus on community development. As a valued partner, Cummins powers more than 100 different models of Taylor heavy-duty forklifts.

Working with partners, Taylor tackles the challenges posed by the production of lift equipment that not only meets the needs of heavy material handling, but also contributes to the improvement of neighboring communities. “Beyond Clean Lifting” is Taylor Machinery’s commitment to a sustainable future and demonstrates its relentless efforts to develop low- and zero-carbon solutions across its entire product line, including all-electric trucks, hydrogen Fuel Cell Trucks and Hydrogen Combustion Engines

Matt Hillyer, Director of Engineering at Taylor said:

It is a pleasure to work with Cummins to incorporate hydrogen combustion engines into Taylor equipment integration. Our partnership demonstrates our commitment to a sustainable future by delivering reliable, cost-effective, zero-carbon solutions for heavy lift equipment that reduce carbon emissions while maintaining productivity.

 A zero-carbon fuel solution will be created, providing cost-effective equipment for high-load, high-use applications. Key benefits of using this technology include providing more timely solutions that reduce carbon emissions without sacrificing productivity. Adding a hydrogen combustion engine to the portfolio of zero-carbon solutions also helps to ease the strain on the public grid and reduce the required load. In addition, the hydrogen internal combustion engine has commonality with traditional internal combustion equipment, providing users with a reliable and easy-to-maintain solution.

Antonio Leitao, vice president of Cummins off-highway engine business, said:

Cummins is pleased to be working with Taylor Machinery on the development of hydrogen powered solutions. We see the hydrogen combustion engine as a solution for the sustainable development of the industry. Hydrogen energy will help OEMs and users continue to forge ahead on the road to zero carbon.
