Komatsu, a global provider of equipment and services for the construction and mining industries and Cummins, a global power leader, have signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on the development of zero-emissions haulage equipment. Building on a legacy of diesel engine partnership across a wide variety of mining and construction equipment, Cummins and Komatsu will initially focus on zero emissions power technologies including hydrogen fuel cell solutions for large mining haul truck applications.
“Cummins has been a long-term partner of Komatsu and has been investing in the key technologies required to support the energy transition in mining,” said Masayuki Moriyama, President of Komatsu’s Mining Business Division. “These are critical technologies for helping mining customers reduce carbon emissions and accelerate carbon neutrality. Building on our partnership with Cummins, we are working to accelerate sustainable solutions for our customers.”
The collaboration with Cummins is part of Komatsu’s efforts to provide zero emissions solutions for its global customers. Moving forward, Komatsu intends to explore further possibilities in zero emissions mining haul truck development.
