Could Cummins Engine develop into a one-stop shop for hydrogen matters? The company is working on a series of products and applications that should lead to zero emissions, so for example on engines for e-fuels or hydrogen, in the area of electrolysis as well as stack production for trucks/commercial vehicles, and on rail vehicles and ships.

With electrolysis, Cummins was able to triple the order volume in 2022 to 300 million USD. Cummins is supplying a PEM electrolyzer for a 35-MW project for Linde in the USA at Niagara Falls. The company is well positioned. It counts on a variety of technological developments, which can be seen from the fact that Cummins offers all electrolysis variants – so from PEM to SOFC to alkaline – according to customer and project requirements.
The 26.2 billion USD turnover and 2.2 billion USD net earnings (15.12 USD per share) for 2022 speaks for itself. The projected annual growth is 10 to 15 percent on average. The business of the unit New Power is still small, but will substantially gain in size in the future, was a takeaway from the latest earnings press conference. Very probably Cummins is also making strategic acquisitions in this area, as it’s already doing in other segments of the company. The over 2 billion USD annual profit provides a basis for many fantastic developments.
