Cummins and Buhler Industries partner on hydrogen engines for agriculture

Cummins and tractor supplier Buhler Industries have signed a letter of intent to integrate Cummins’ 15-litre hydrogen engines in the Versatile brand’s equipment to lead the decarbonisation of the agriculture market.

Ann Schmelzer, General Manager Cummins Global Agriculture Business, said both companies share a commitment to technology, quality and dependability. Since 1967, Versatile has used Cummins engines exclusively in all four-wheel drive tractors.

Adam Reid, Versatile’s Vice-President of Sales and Marketing, said, “While diesel engines continue to be the flexible power of choice for the foreseeable future in agriculture, such a collaboration enables both companies to develop low and zero carbon solutions that are ideally suited to farming.”

Schmelzer added, “Cummins has recently announced its plan to leverage existing platforms and expertise in spark ignited technology to build hydrogen engines. The high commonality among engine components between diesel and hydrogen leverages scale advantages for OEMs, while delivering the reliability that farmers need.”
