Werner Enterprises Adds Natural Gas and Hydrogen Engines to Fleet

Werner Enterprises announced Jan. 28 that it will soon be adding natural gas and hydrogen internal combustion engines to its vehicles as early as the second half of 2022.

The logistics and transportation company will be receiving 15-liter natural gas and 15-liter hydrogen engines from Cummins, which can be paired with the power system company’s Eaton Automated Transmission Technologies Endurant HD Transmission and Fuel Delivery System. When paired with renewable natural gas, Werner Enterprises would potentially be able to achieve carbon negative functioning. 

The engines will offer up to 500 horsepower, while not requiring selective catalytic reduction (SCR) in order to meet 2024 California or EPA emissions standards. The hydrogen engine will also have the ability to use zero-carbon green hydrogen fuel, a capability that will grow with the continued global investment in renewable hydrogen production.

“The options Cummins is providing align with our longstanding focus on sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint,” Derek Leathers, chairman, president and CEO at Werner Enterprises, said in a statement. “They understand the priority we place on using technology to minimize our impact on the environment. By being proactive now, we are ensuring a better future for everyone, and I look forward to this collaborative effort.”
