Cummins and Tata Motors form joint venture for sustainable technology products in India:
Global power technology company, Cummins Inc, has entered into a definitive agreement with Tata Motors Ltd to manufacture a range of low-to-zero-emissions technology products in India. The two companies have established a new business entity, TCPL Green Energy Solutions Private Ltd (GES), a wholly-owned subsidiary under the existing joint venture, Tata Cummins Private Limited (TCPL) in India. The partnership aims to develop and manufacture sustainable technology products, including hydrogen-powered internal combustion engines, fuel delivery systems, battery electric powertrains, and fuel cell electric systems, through the Accelera by Cummins brand.
Strengthening a 30-year partnership:
The collaboration further strengthens the 30-year-old partnership between Cummins and Tata Motors, established in 1993 through their joint venture TCPL in India. The low-to-zero emissions technologies developed by TCPL GES will be integrated into both on-highway and off-highway applications for domestic and international markets. In November 2022, the two organisations signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate on the design and development of low- and zero-emissions propulsion technology solutions for commercial vehicles in India.
Advancing decarbonisation journey:
Cummins President and Chief Executive Officer, Jennifer Rumsey, stated that the company is embarking on a decarbonisation journey with its “trusted partner of 30 years – Tata Motors.”
