Global Hydrogen Review,


Cummins Inc and Terex Advance have announced the signing of a letter of intent (LOI) to integrate Cummins’ X15H hydrogen internal combustion engines into the Terex Advance Commander Series.

David Grabner, General Manager at Terex Advance, said: “As the global need to reduce emissions becomes stronger, we are actively pursuing practical, cost-effective strategies to help our ready-mix customers decarbonise. Cummins’ X15H is a feasible zero-carbon option for our renowned front-discharge mixer trucks, and we are eagerly anticipating the future deployment of this technology.”

Currently powered by Cummins diesel engines, the Terex Advance Commander Series will include a zero-carbon hydrogen fuel option when series production of Cummins’ X15H engines begins later this decade.

Jim Nebergall, General Manager, Cummins Hydrogen Engine Business, said: “Hydrogen internal combustion engines provide a viable zero-carbon fuel option for heavy-duty, high-performance applications like concrete mixer trucks, which are often subject to arduous duty-cycles and tough terrain. It is exciting to see OEMs like Terex Advance leading the way in zero-carbon technologies, particularly in complex sectors like vocational trucking.”

Part of Cummins’ industry-first fuel agnostic platform, the X15H is based on familiar internal combustion engine technology. Integration into the truck chassis is straightforward and does not require major overhaul of vehicle designs or business operations. Significant commonality between the X15H and Cummins’ existing diesel platforms facilitates scale advantages in parts procurement and supports existing maintenance practices.

Hydrogen internal combustion engines enable vocational applications to comply with the EPA’s proposed greenhouse gas (GHG) Phase 3 standard, while still meeting critical performance requirements.
