Cummins to open power train test facility in Darlington

Go Ahead Ireland to rollout Stratio across entire fleet


Cummins is investing £14m in a new powertrain test facility at its Darlington campus. The facility is focussed on developing ‘cleaner, next generation power technologies’ focussed on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality.

Ground preparation work for the new facility is underway with the first phase expected to open for operations by May 2023.

The facility is designed to be ‘fuelagnostic’ and will test a range of power technologies, including the ‘latest universal engine platforms’ with variants able to operate on green hydrogen, renewable natural gas, or sustainable diesel.

Installation and testing capability will also extend to hydrogen fuel cell and battery electric powertrains.

The facility will also test chassis-installed powertrains and vehicles, ranging in size from compact SUVs to double-decker buses.
