TCPL GES, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Cummins Private Limited (TCPL), a 50:50 joint venture of Tata Motors Limited and Cummins Inc. USA, today inaugurated a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility to produce hydrogen-based Internal Combustion Engines for Medium and Heavy Commercial Vehicles and other low to zero emission technology products in India. The inauguration of this facility reaffirms its commitment to power a cleaner and sustainable future for India.

Situated in Jamshedpur and spanning almost seven acres, this facility is equipped with cutting-edge technology and infrastructure, reflecting the commitment of both Tata Motors and Cummins to innovation, manufacturing excellence, and environmental sustainability. The opening of this plant within a year of signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the State of Jharkhand reaffirms the commitment and steady progress that the two organizations have made in advancing their decarbonization strategy.

Speaking on the occasion, Girish Wagh, Executive Director of Tata Motors said “Tata Motors’ established legacy of nation-building, innovations, and industry firsts gains further momentum with the opening of this new-age manufacturing facility. The hydrogen-based powertrain aggregates and systems produced here will shape the future of mobility in India, making it smarter and greener. We remain committed to partner our customers to build a better tomorrow by enabling them to progressively adopt emission free and commercially viable solutions for cargo and people mobility.”

Speaking on the occasion, Ashwath Ram, Managing Director, Cummins Group in India said, “Cummins has always believed in bringing the right technology that powers the success of our customers at the right time. Our commitment to manufacturing advanced low to zero-emissions technology products that advance decarbonization isn't just a promise; it's a responsibility we embrace and is backed by concrete action. Powered by our global expertise, strategic partnership, and technological capabilities, we are making steady progress on our Destination Zero strategy."

Tata Motors and Cummins have a 30-year strong partnership in India through their joint venture Tata Cummins Private Limited (TCPL). TCPL GES, a subsidiary of TCPL, was formed in March 2023 to collaborate on the design and development of low and zero-emission propulsion technology solutions for commercial vehicles in India. These technologies and solutions will be deployed in a variety of applications and will play a pivotal role in developing sustainable powertrain solutions that will help to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, and support India's net-zero ambitions.

In alignment with PLANET 2050, which is a long-range business strategy with an environmental lens to address climate change, natural resource use, and improving communities, Cummins’ dedication to sustainability is evident not only in the products it creates but also in the operations of its manufacturing plants. During the construction of the new facility, sustainable practices were prioritized, including the use of eco-friendly materials, energy-efficient systems, and waste reduction measures.
