Siemens Partners With Cummins
4,000 HP QSK95 Finds Another Home
Remember the Cummins QSK95 engine we showcased nearly two years ago?...
Well, now the 5,700 cubic inch, 4,000hp V-16 will find a home in Siemens Rail Systems' passenger rail, diesel electric locomotives for use in the U.S. marketplace. The QSK95 is built at Cummins' Seymour, Indiana plant, meets stringent EPA Tier 4 locomotive emissions standards without the use of EGR (SCR is utilized), is equipped with four turbos (single stage), and features a modular common-rail system (MCRS) capable of producing injection pressures as high as 31,000 psi. According to Cummins, the QSK95 is the most powerful diesel engine ever to be installed in a locomotive generating more than 4,000 hp.
The locomotives will be built at Siemens' transportation manufacturing facility in Sacramento, California.
