Cummins Engine is highly committed to the H2 industry – also in the commercial vehicle sector, starting with trucks and going all the way to ships. The company is also expanding its own electrolysis technologies. A project with Sinopec consists of an electrolysis capacity of 1 GW – 1,000 H2 fueling stations for the Greater Peking Area. Cummins Engine is vehemently driving its transformation from a diesel engine producer to a fuel cell company and in doing so majorly implementing and scaling the special knowhow of the purchased/integrated Canadian company Hydrogenics.
The Chinese parallel is Weichai Power, which maintains a joint venture with Canadian Ballard Power and holds a 15 percent stake in it. Both first-tier diesel engine manufacturers are maturing into top fuel cell companies and treat hydrogen as the fuel of the future – especially for commercial vehicles.
