Cummins, three other companies agree to test hydrogen engines in real-world conditions

The project aims to develop a full hydrogen eco-system together with a hydrogen producer, vehicle manufacturer and end user.

Cummins Inc. and Terex Advance Mixer Inc. have signed an agreement by which Terex will produce and trial concrete mixer trucks powered by Cummins’ hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engines.

The project aims to develop a full hydrogen eco-system together with a hydrogen producer, vehicle manufacturer and end user. Four companies will be involved in the effort:

  • Cummins’ X15H hydrogen internal combustion engines will be integrated into the Terex Advance Commander Series of front-discharge concrete mixer trucks.
  • Edge Materials, LLC, a ready-mix concrete provider and Terex Advance customer, will operate the hydrogen-powered trucks in real-world environments, including on construction sites and infrastructure projects.
  • PCC Hydrogen, an ultra-low carbon intensity hydrogen producer based in Louisville, KY, will supply the hydrogen fuel as well as stationary storage and dispensing services.

“While Cummins is investing in a range of power options to support decarbonization, hydrogen internal combustion engines are emerging as a key technology to eliminate carbon emissions from heavy-duty sectors, while retaining the power density and operational range typical of diesel engines,” Jim Nebergall, general manager of hydrogen engines at Cummins, said. “This collaboration represents an end-to-end demonstration of how hydrogen internal combustion engines work practically in tough applications using real trucks, real infrastructure and real end-users.”
