Terex Advance will integrate the Cummins X15H hydrogen internal combustion engine into its Commander Series front discharge mixer truck specifications as production of the diesel power alternative commences later this decade. “We are actively pursuing practical, cost-effective strategies to help customers decarbonize. The X15H is a feasible option for our trucks, and we are eagerly anticipating deployment of this technology,” notes Terex Advance General Manager David Grabner. 

Terex Advance is the first U.S. on-highway truck OEM to add the X15H.

“Hydrogen internal combustion engines provide a viable zero-carbon option for heavy-duty, high-performance applications like concrete mixer trucks, which are often subject to arduous duty cycles and tough terrain,” affirms Cummins Hydrogen Engine Business General Manager Jim Nebergall. “We believe [these] engines will play an essential part in decarbonizing both on- and off-highway applications. With diesel-like power and torque, the X15H gives our customers an option that delivers, no matter how hard their trucks work, or how tough the operating environment.”

The X15H is part of the company’s industry-first fuel agnostic platform, based on familiar internal combustion engine technology, he adds, and affords straightforward truck chassis integration, parts procurement advantages, plus continuation of established maintenance practices. Hydrogen internal combustion engines, moreover, enable vocational fleets to comply with the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed greenhouse gas Phase 3 standard, while still meeting critical performance requirements.
