Back To Diesel Products>Volkswagen, Cummins Pair Up to Develop Diesel Marine Engines

Two major proprietors of diesel power are pairing up to develop and produce a new generation of engines, but the future oil-burning powerplants won't be propelling any four-wheeled vehicles.

Instead, Volkswagen and Cummins MerCruiser Diesel, the boating division of the Cummins engine group (which can be found in our long-term 2010 Ram 2500), are joining forces to produce future marine products. The done deal will see both sides work towards meeting Tier 3 emissions standards in the United States, which go into effect in 2012. The equivalent European diesel standard follows in 2014 and all Volkswagen-manufactured marine engines from 2011 forward will be supplied, marketed, and branded under the Cummins name.

"We bring to the alliance our technological know-how in engine production and the high quality standard of Volkswagen products," said Dr. Werner Neubauer, Volkswagen board member. "CMD has expert knowledge of marine applications and is well known for its success in marine engine distribution and service. Today's agreement marks the beginning of a further field of expertise in an automotive-related area and therefore safeguards employment at Volkswagen on a sustainable basis."

The upcoming 346-horsepower engines will be assembled in Salzgitter, Germany.

While the partnership is merely slated for aquatic power, do you think it will eventually spill over to the automotive end?
