Cummins has signed a memorandum of understanding with Leclanché to create a range of hybrid, battery-only and fuel-cell-package projects for marine and rail applications. These products will utilize a variety of power sources, such as engines, hydrogen fuel cells, battery packs and racks.

The memorandum is part of Cummins’ broader Destination Zero strategy, a plan to reach net zero emissions across its products by 2050.

Recently, the company launched Accelera by Cummins, rebranding its New Power segment, to bring zero-emissions solutions to markets even faster.

“Combining efforts with Leclanché enables us to provide a broader range of solutions to reach our goals and help our customers accelerate their decarbonization journeys,” Gbile Adewunmi, executive director of industrial markets in power systems segment at Cummins, stated in a press release.

How will this partnership work? Cummins and Leclanché plan to work together on installation, training, commissioning, warranty and after-sales support.
