Spark–ignited generator sets from Cummins Power Generation comply with new EPA emissions standards

Cummins Power Generation has received EPA 2009 emissions certificates for five spark-ignited generator set models – GGMA, GGMB, GGMC, GGHE and GGHF ranging in size from 20 kW to 80 kW

MINNEAPOLIS — Cummins Power Generation, continuing its leadership in providing advanced emissions solutions, today announced that its spark-ignited gas generator sets are certified to the new exhaust emissions standards required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Cummins Power Generation has received EPA 2009 emissions certificates for five spark–ignited generator set models — GGMA, GGMB, GGMC, GGHE and GGHF — ranging in size from 20 kW to 80 kW.

The EPA emissions regulation — marking an industry first — requires that generator set engines not certified from the manufacturer must be brought into compliance with the regulation by the owner or operator.

“Emissions regulations are complex and can add to the cost of doing business as well as the worry of not being in compliance,” said Henry Zeng, product manager, Commercial Generator Set Business, Cummins Power Generation.

Zeng added that “today’s announcement reflects Cummins Power Generation’s continuous aim to meet regulatory standards and a strong commitment to the environment. The EPA emissions certification for our spark–ignited generator sets is a great enhancement to Cummins’ leadership in emissions compliance and technology.”

Strong history of emissions leadership
Cummins Power Generation was the first to market with Tier 3 diesel generator sets. To maintain its market leadership with compliant spark–ignited generator sets, the company developed an emissions solutions package that delivers reduced emissions, better performance and less complexity than before. Technical advances for the five EPA–certified generator sets include an electronic air–fuel–ratio (eAFR) control and an oxygen sensor to minimize exhaust emissions. The solution does not change the generator set’s installation or footprint, however, so customers can continue using the installation process or design to which they are accustomed.

As the emissions leader, Cummins Power Generation develops its own emissions technologies and tests the emissions of its products’ performance in accordance with the EPA regulations.

“This marks a major change in EPA regulations,” Zeng noted. “Cummins Power Generation delivers the benefit of simplicity to our customers. With a certified standby stationary generator set from Cummins Power Generation, the only responsibility of the customer is proper application and maintenance of the generator set. It’s an extremely cost–effective solution for owners and operators.”
