Cummins receives U.S. EPA Tier 4i certification
Cummins stationary diesel generator set ranging from 680 to 2,750 kW has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Tier 4i certification for the North American market.

Cummins Power Generation, a division of Cummins Inc., announced its stationary diesel generator set ranging from 680 to 2,750 kW, including the Mission Critical 2,500 kW diesel generator set, has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Tier 4 interim (Tier 4i) certification for the North American market.

Generator sets are ready to meet final Tier 4 certification, mandatory in 2015.

“Cummins has been a leader in developing technologies that meet all emission regulations ahead of their implementation dates,” said Tony Satterthwaite, vice president, Cummins Inc. and president, Power Generation Business.

“I am delighted to announce that our Tier 4 interim certified generator sets are Tier 4 Final ready and fully capable of meeting the most exacting EPA requirements three years ahead of schedule. Our customers’ operational flexibility is further enhanced with a clear roadmap to meeting EPA Tier 4 Final requirements in 2015.”

The EPA requires that all non-emergency applications be Tier 4i certified. Cummins’ stationary diesel generator sets can be configured to meet requirements beyond Tier 4i if necessary, and generator sets are available to comply with the most stringent emissions regulations.
