Cummins India Limited - Power Generation Business Unit unveiled three new products for the domestic market at the opening of POWER-GEN India & Central Asia 2008 exhibition hosted at Pragati Maidan.  The three new products include; 30/35 kVA low horse power generator sets in the X series, and a 750 kVA high horse power generator set in the QSK23 series.  All three products are a major advancement to the Company's currently available product range. 

The introduction of the 30/35 kVA range brings Cummins technology and innovation to the rapidly increasing small businesses and mobile telecommunications sector.  Its unique features and benefits make it one of the best small generator options in the market today.  Advanced features like optimum power density, full authority electronic features and compliance to future emission norms of the QSK23, make this product the preferred option for the IT/ITES, manufacturing, commercial and realty sectors.   

"2008 marks a significant year for Cummins India's power generation business.  In the past four months alone, we have inaugurated two new manufacturing facilities and performed the ground breaking ceremony for a third site to increase our capacity in power generation.  The first of the two new facilities opened at Ranjangaon, close to Pune for manufacturing Stamford alternators.  The second unit built in Pirangut near Pune manufactures small generator sets from 15 -140 kVA for Original Equipment Manufacturers and global distributors.  Manufacturing of generator sets below 15 kVA will commence at this facility later this year.  We held the ground-breaking ceremony of a new world class turbocharger manufacturing facility in Pithampur in December 2007; production is due to start at the end of this calendar year.  These significant investments position Cummins to serve global customers over the next 3-5 years", said Anant Talaulicar, Chairman & Managing Director of Cummins India Limited at a media briefing organized on Day One of POWER-GEN 2008 at Pragati Maidan.

"Cummins Power Generation is excited about its market potential in India and in markets all around the world.  Cummins India is also the global sourcing hub for Cummins entities around the world.  The X Series commands a significant market in various regions including Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Africa and LAO.  Till date, the Company has exported approximately 10,000 units of these small gensets globally, with the demand growing rapidly.  A dedicated Export Oriented Unit at our new plant in Pirangut will help to significantly ramp up this export capacity further", Rampraveen Swaminathan, Vice President of Cummins India Limited – Power Generation Business Unit said.

"We entered the small genset market around six years ago and within a short period we have been able to consolidate a strong position with a premium product line and highly dependable products.  The product lines have broadened our power generation customer base globally, and have helped us to become the only Company in India which can truly offer a complete range of 15 to 2500 kVA",  he added.

Anant Talaulicar also spoke about the new Cummins. "Over the last six years Cummins has worked very hard to transform itself into a Company that is more diversified, less cyclical, more global and more results oriented.  This change has resulted in an increased focus on dependability - a critical factor in the power generation business.  Cummins Power Generation like all the other Cummins businesses in India has benefitted from this exercise and new mindset", he added.
