Cummins launched a new Onan marine U.S. EPA Tier 3-certi? ed generator, the 55-kW MDDCM. “The expansion of our EPA Tier 3 marine product lineup to 55 kW with the MDDCM provides our customers a higher power option in a more environmentally-friendly product than previously available from Cummins Onan,” said Brian Barnes, Marketing Leader, Onan Marine. The MDDCM joins the company’s Tier 3-certi? ed marine product line, which includes engines from 6.7 to 50 liters and gen- erators from 17 to 55 kW. Cummins Tier 3-certi? ed engines 19 liters and below and Onan marine gen- erators also meet future U.S. emissions requirements, and will be available for the foreseeable future.
The 55-kW Onan marine generator was engineered for lower emissions and some of the best sound and vibration mitigation in the industry. All Onan marine gen- erators, including the MDDCM, feature advanced sound shields for lower sound and an optimized mounting system for reduced vibration. Plus, all are available with a Cummins Onan digital display for user-friendly diag- nostics, including extensive en- gine and alternator information, self-diagnostic features and text display.
