New Cummins Onan Genset Offers Auxiliary Power for CNG Trucks


Cummins Power Generation, a subsidiary of Cummins Inc., has introduced a new compressed natural gas (CNG)-powered Onan 5.5 kW generator set designed to provide auxiliary electric and optional hydraulic power for commercial truck fleets that run on CNG.

The company says service fleets could use the CNG genset's 120/240 V of auxiliary power to run power drills, fans, pumps and other equipment. As an option, the unit is also available with a hydraulic power takeoff to operate small cranes, splicing equipment and bucket hoists, while simultaneously providing electric power.

The new Cummins Onan generator has an enclosed muffler and exhaust catalysts that help it meet all applicable U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board air quality standards, the company adds.

The generator set is backed by a two-year limited warranty and a five-year drive warranty and is supported by the Cummins dealer network.
