Powertron Engineering S.R.L. pursues higher engine efficiency
Powertron Engineering S.R.L. is an independent power provider and service organisation based in the Umbria region of Italy. Looking to improve the running efficiency of the many power plants they work with, the company wanted to evaluate the effectiveness of Bowman Power Group’s ETC (Electric Turbo Compounding) system on a Cummins KTA50-G8 engine.
Key customer requirements:
- To increase genset efficiency
- To reduce fuel consumption by 5%
- To reduce CO2 emissions
Targeting these specific challenges, our ETC technology was integrated with the customer’s Cummins KTA50-G8 engine, and up and running within a couple of weeks.
The trial delivered significant benefits to the customer:
- 7% Fuel consumption reduction
- Reduced CO2
- To date, €230k operational cost savings
- Payback in less than 12 months
Bowman Power Group and Cummins Inc
Earlier this year, Bowman Power Group entered into a strategic partnership with Cummins Inc, a global power leader present in over 190 countries worldwide. Cummins have previously tested our technology, and reported fuel efficiency improvements between 5 and 8 percent.
