Cummins NPower CNG Engines

  1. 1. Cummins WestportThe Natural ChoiceNatural Gas and VehiclesJune 2012
  2. 2. Agenda Market Changes ISL-G, ISX12-G – Technology – Product features and benefits – Differences – (CNG vs Diesel) – Tech Specs / maintenance intervals / ratings – Value Spec – Availability 2
  3. 3. Heavy Duty Market – Primary DriversThe market is moving….Large oil and gas Truck OEMs and Fuel Fleetsproducers Providers oTesting NG vehicleso Investing in LNG oExpanding product oLooking to innovateproduction offering the business model oBuilding infrastructure Cummins Westport Confidential 3
  4. 4. Natural Gas is a Safe Fuel CNG LNG Liquid fuels Lighter than air  Heavier than air Rises  Descends Doesn’t accumulate in low places  Accumulates in low places Rich mixture burns off slowly  Rich mixture explodes Ignites at temperatures of approx.  Gas and diesel vapors ignite at 600 C approx. 200 C Non toxic  Toxic, especially gasoline Odorless-detection fragrance is  Strong inherent odor added  Evaporates slowly at room Evaporates quickly temperature

  8. 8. ISL G Product Features and Benefits 8.9L Stoichiometric Cooled EGR engine with spark ignition In production since mid-2007 Low emissions – 0.20 g/bhp-hr NOx – 0.01 g/bhp-hr PM Three Way Catalyst Aftertreatment Diesel like Performance, Reliability and Durability – Same rated speed – Similar torque curve – Over 30% more torque at idle vs. lean burn – Improved fuel economy of 5% vs. lean burn Over 80% parts commonality with ISL9 Compatible with CNG, LNG, or Biomethane (RNG) Renewable Natural Gas 8
  9. 9. What is the Same Between ISL9 & ISL G? Major Engine Components & Technology – Block, crankshaft, main bearing, piston rods – Over 80% parts commonality – Cooled EGR 500 hour Maintenance Interval Parts, Service, Training, Warranty – Cummins Distributor Network 320, 300, 280, 260 and 250 HP rating Compatible w/ Cummins Diagnostic Tools – Insite – QuickServe Online 9
  10. 10. What is Different Between ISL9 & ISL G? Cylinder Head 2 Valve 4 Valve Ignition Spark Ignition (spark plugs) Compression Ignition Fuel System Intake Manifold Common Rail Aftertreatment Three way catalyst Particulate Filter + SCR Compression 12:1 16.6:1 Ratio Cost of maintenance related to ignition and overhead valve adjustments adds incremental maintenance cost for the ISL G Maintenance Cost versus ISL9. This cost is typically more than offset by fuel cost savings with natural gas. Natural gas engines require a specific oil that meets Cummins Lubricating Oil specification CES 20074 Noise Natural gas engines are up to 10db quieter at idle 10
  11. 11. Aftertreatment Comparison SCR Catalyst Particulate Filter ISL9 (diesel) Heated DEF Tank DEF ECM Dosing Control Unit Three Way Catalyst ISL G Cummins TWC(natural gas) 11
  12. 12. ISL G Maintenance Free Aftertreatment Three Way Catalyst Packaged as a muffler-vertical or horizontal mount Weighs approx 100 pounds Minimizes vehicle impact No regeneration or DEF required.
  13. 13. Maintenance – ISL G Maintenance is a key factor in engine life ISL G maintenance intervals are established by Cummins Engineering and are based on engine family data. Key interval is oil drain, which is duty cycle dependant. The ISL G durability target for major engine components (crankshaft, etc.) is the same as ISL – B50 of 600K miles / 20,000 hours in typical on-highway applications (30 mph average speed). However, not all engine components have the same life expectation. In particular, the ISL G engine 2 valve cylinder head – Predicted B50 life of 325K miles (11,000 hours).
  14. 14. Intended Service Guidelines The ISL G operates in a variety of applications. Maintenance intervals as published by Cummins are established based on vehicle applications and average speed. Normal Duty is described as idle time less than 40%, the vehicle does not operate in dusty areas, and GVW is not more than 65,000 pounds. Vehicles exceeding the published weight values as described in Cummins AEB 140.21 require a Cummins application review.ISL G Severe Duty Application Review Severe Duty is described as more than 40% idle time, expected annual mileage in excess of 60,000 miles per year or weights in excess of 65,000 pounds Severe Duty requires special consideration on a case by case basis – Severe duty may increase maintenance costs and engine life Each case must be specifically approved by CWI.

Interval is whichever comes first – hours, miles or time. Refer to Owners Manual for complete details on Maintenance Intervals. ¹ If engine is equipped with an optional coolant filter, it will need to be replaced at the same intervals as the oil filter. Regardless if the engine is or is not equipped with a coolant filter, SCA/DCA additive levels must be checked according to the interval listed in the Owners Manual. *Assuming normal duty cycle/based on 30 mph average speed. **Do not change if SCA above 3 ***Initial Overhead Adjustment at 1,000 hours

  20. 20. ISL G: The Right Applications Medium Duty Market – Refuse / Dump / Mixer – Transit and School Bus – Pickup and Delivery Truck – Medium Duty Specialty Vehicles (street sweeper, yard spotter, etc…) Heavy Duty Market – Less Than Truck Load (LTL) applications – Regional / Bulk Haul applications 20
