04/27/2009


Four additional models of spark-ignited generator sets from Minneapolis-based Cummins Power Generation Inc. have received certification to the new exhaust emissions standards required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The newly certified models--GGHG, GGHH, GGLA, and GGLB--range in size from 85 kW to 150 kW.

These four models join a portfolio of five previously certified spark-ignited generator sets from Cummins Power Generation--GGMA, GGMB, GGMC, GGHE, and GGHF--ranging in size from 20 kW to 75 kW.

Under the new EPA regulations, all standby spark-ignited generator sets with engines manufactured after Dec. 31, 2008, are required to meet new emissions standards. Engines not certified by the manufacturer must be brought into compliance by the owner or operator.
