Cummins Gets Seismic Certification

19 February 2019

Cummins, Inc. said it has obtained the 2018 International Building Code (IBC) seismic certification for its generator sets. The IBC code is intended to provide minimum requirements to safeguard the public health, safety and general welfare of the occupants of new and existing buildings and structures.

Cummins said the IBC certification assures its gen-sets will remain intact and functional during and after seismic activity. The certification applies to Cummins products ranging from 706 kVA to 2750 kVA within the 50 Hz standby application product offering and products between 603 kW and 2.25 MW within its 60 Hz offering.

“The addition of this certification guarantees our continuous commitment to manufacture the most durable products in the world,” said Chris Reynard, Cummins senior product manager for High Horsepower Diesel Generator Sets. “It also provides our customers with assured confidence and flexibility when tough environmental conditions dictate.”

A range of generators are covered by the 2018 IBC code including models from the Q30, K50, Q50 and Q60 engine groups, produced by Cummins in the U.K., as well as the Q23, V28 and K38 models manufactured at Cummins’ India facilities. Acquiring the certification means Cummins customers now have the flexibility to order certified products from Cummins manufacturing plants in the U.K., India and its U.S. plant in Fridley, Minn.
