Cummins Power Generation Delivers Emergency Energy Solutions in Brazil
Minneapolis, MN, June 24, 2004 -- Cummins Power Generation-Brazil has responded to an emergency electrical shortage in Brazil, created by water and hydroelectric generation shortfalls. Cummins has become a leading supplier to the Brazilian power initiative, not only providing efficient and clean state-of-the art diesel and natural gas engine generator systems, but also delivering project management and financing. To date, Cummins has financed and commissioned three power systems for Brazil totaling more than 113 MW - enough power to supply a city of 350,000 people. Two of them were part of the strategic emergency energy plan of the Brazilian government's emergency energy agency for power plants. The third is for a building complex in São Paulo that includes a luxury hotel, a mall and office tower, and headquarters of prominent Brazilian and international companies.

The Brazilian projects are an example of Cummins Power Generation's growing focus on delivering total energy solutions to customers, rather than only providing generating equipment. For more information, visit http://www.cumminspower.com.
