Siemens Mobility’s locomotive Success is good news for Cummins’ QSK95 engine system and the environment


2018 was a great year for Siemens Mobility’s popular Charger locomotives, which means Cummins Inc. employees will be keeping busy over the next few years. That’s because the locomotives will continue to use Cummins’ QSK95 Tier 4 engine systems to help deliver clean, efficient power for passenger trains.
As a fitting end to an already strong year of wins for the Charger, Amtrak announced Dec. 21 that it would be purchasing 75 Charger locomotives for delivery starting in 2021. All in all, the value of Siemens Mobility contracts for the year involving the Charger including the Amtrak purchase exceeded $1.5 billion.
The contracts will more than double the number of Charger locomotives in revenue service, and include multi-year parts, service and support agreements in addition to buy options for future purchases. The most recent contract will result in the single largest North American rail engine system purchase with aftermarket agreements in Cummins’ history.
“Cummins is proud to be a part of this tremendous locomotive, which is not just demonstrating every day it can move people dependably and efficiently, but also delivering significant reductions in particulate matter (PM), nitrogen oxide (NOx) and carbon dioxide (CO2),” said Regina Barringer, General Manager – Global Rail and Defense at Cummins.
“Siemens Mobility has built a tremendous product that is making a positive impact through all of North America and we’re glad to be part that,” she added.
