Building in competitive edge

Engine and genset original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are at the heart of the power generation sector.

In a highly competitive market, and with an increasing focus on energy efficiency, OEMs need to find ways to differentiate products in order to become the preferred supplier of generators to power rental companies, independent power producers, genset end-users with high levels of utilisation and renewable energy producers.

The benefit of ETC technology for OEMs

Competitive advantage and increased market share: OEMs that integrate ETC technology with their engines and gensets offer customers a more technically advanced product compared to other products in the market:

  • Improved fuel efficiency, delivering the same power output with a lower fuel consumption, or generating additional power – enhanced competitive advantage
  • Improved products to drive new markets, and either take share from established players, or defend market position from competition

Clean energy benefits: For OEMs serving the renewable energy sector, ETC-equipped engines or generators enables end-users to generate more clean power from the same intake of finite renewable fuel sources. Read our case study on a customer using a Cummins KTA50 running on bio-fuel.

Benefit to diesel engine customers: The ETC system delivers between 4-7% fuel consumption savings, which, even at today’s low fuel prices, delivers significant cost savings to end-users operating a fleet. See the value of fuel saved by our customers worldwide.
