Tata Cummins Open New Hydrogen Engine (H2ICE) Manufacturing Facility In Jamshedpur

Tata Cummins Green Energy Solutions (TCPL GES), a subsidiary of Tata Motors and Cummins Inc., today inaugurated a new manufacturing plant in Jamshedpur, India.

This facility is dedicated to producing hydrogen-powered internal combustion engines (H2ICE) for medium and heavy commercial vehicles. The plant spans nearly 7 acres and is part of the companies' commitment to developing low-to-zero emission technologies. 

The cost for setting up this state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is reported to be around 35.4 billion rupees, which is approximately $425 million. 

This initiative aligns with Tata Motors' and Cummins' long-standing partnership and their joint venture, Tata Cummins Private Limited (TCPL). The new subsidiary, TCPL GES, was formed in March 2023 to focus on the design and development of sustainable propulsion technology solutions. These technologies are expected to play a significant role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving air quality, and supporting India's net-zero ambitions.

The collaboration between Tata and Cummins also includes a significant investment to build a factory that will produce thousands of hydrogen ICEs per year, marking a substantial move towards cleaner energy in the automotive sector.

H2ICE technology is a significant step towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions and aligns with the global shift towards sustainable and eco-friendly transportation solutions.

The new plant spans almost 7 acres and is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and infrastructure. It was established within a year of signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the State of Jharkhand. This initiative is part of a broader commitment by Tata Motors and Cummins to advance decarbonization and support India's net-zero ambitions by developing sustainable powertrain solutions.

The production of Cummins’ hydrogen-powered internal combustion engines (H2ICE) in collaboration with Tata is slated to begin in 2027.

India is expected to be among the first markets to receive these vehicles once production commences. This aligns with the companies' commitment to advancing low-to-zero emission technologies and supporting India's net-zero ambitions.
