Cummins aims to become the world’s leading provider of decarbonised powertrains for heavy-duty applications by 2030.
Trident program enables and accelerates the development of zero-carbon systems (e.g. fuel cells) and high efficiency ICE powertrains in medium term.
This is achieved by achieving class leading efficiencies and world class analysis techniques that can be applied across ICE, alternative fuels and fuel-cell platforms.
The consortium partners enable achieving the goals in medium term ICE and fuel cell platforms.
Aeristech will develop a 45kW e-machine platform utilising oil-free bearings integrated with the optimised turbomachinery.
Aeristech will validate operation on a gas stand whilst supporting validation on platform and vehicle. This involves developing a high-speed electric motor, power electronics, oil-free bearings and control software.
