Cummins partners with Battery Innovation Center for testing, validation and training

Cummins, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of commercial vehicle engines, has been steadily expanding its offerings to include hybrid and electric powertrains. Now the Indiana company has partnered with the nearby Battery Innovation Center (BIC) for support in testing of its battery systems and training for its workforce.

The BIC has been helping Cummins over the last 18 months with testing and validating battery management systems, as well as battery pack development, product testing and safety testing. BIC also supports Cummins’s talent development and acquisition strategy. BIC has customized its multi-day Energy Storage Short Course to fit the needs of Cummins employees. Currently,  more than 1,000 Cummins team members are in the process of completing BIC courses.

“Building and supporting our full range of electric storage capability globally would not have been possible without BIC’s dedication to helping train our employees, as well as validate and test our battery systems,” said Julie Furber, Executive Director – Electrified Power. By partnering with BIC, we have tapped into its deep expertise and battery testing infrastructure. Our partnership has not only accelerated the launch of Cummins’s new electrified power portfolio but is also nurturing Indiana’s electrification ecosystem.”
