Taylor Machine, Cummins collaborate to integrate hydrogen engines

Cummins Inc. and Taylor Machine Works Inc., a American producer of heavy industrial lift equipment, have signed a letter of intent to incorporate Cummins 6.7-litre and 15-litre hydrogen engines into the Taylor product range.

This partnership aims to assist the industrial steel, wood products, concrete, oil and gas, and port operations industries achieve their decarbonisation ambitions.

Taylor has taken on the task of designing lift equipment that will not only service large material handling demands, but will also attempt to positively impact neighbouring communities.

Battery Electric trucks, hydrogen fuel cell trucks, and now Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engines (H2ICE) are all part of this endeavour.

Matt Hillyer, Director of Engineering at Taylor, stated: ”We are excited to announce our collaboration with Cummins to integrate hydrogen internal combustion engines into Taylor products.

“This partnership signifies our commitment to a sustainable future, enabling us to offer reliable, cost-effective, zero-carbon solutions for heavy industrial lift equipment, reducing carbon emissions without compromising productivity.”

Hydrogen combustion engines aims to create a zero-carbon fuelled solution that provides cost effective equipment for high load factor, high utilisation applications.

Key benefits of using this technology include enabling a more-timely solution to reduce carbon emissions without sacrificing productivity.

Adding Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine (H2ICE) to the mix of zero carbon solutions will also reduce the load required from already stressed utility grids.

Finally, commonalities with traditional internal combustion equipment will provide solutions that are dependable, as well as easy to service and maintain.

Antonio Leitao, Cummins Vice President Off-Highway Engine Business, stated: “Cummins is pleased to be working with Taylor Machine Works on hydrogen solutions for their equipment.

“We see hydrogen internal combustion engines as a solution to help drive sustainability improvements in our industry. Hydrogen power will help both OEMs and end-users looking to making carbon emissions reductions on their paths to zero.”
