"We are excited to announce our collaboration with Cummins to integrate hydrogen internal combustion engines into Taylor products,” said Matt Hillyer, director of engineering, Taylor Machine Works. “This partnership signifies our commitment to a sustainable future, enabling us to offer reliable, cost-effective, zero-carbon solutions for heavy industrial lift equipment, reducing carbon emissions without compromising productivity."

Hydrogen combustion engines will create a zero-carbon fueled solution that provides cost effective equipment for high load factor, high utilization applications, Cummins stated in a press release. Adding H2ICE to the mix of zero-carbon solutions will also reduce the load required from already stressed utility grids, while commonalities with traditional internal combustion equipment will provide solutions that are dependable and easy to service and maintain.
