Cummins Power Generation’s entire line of marine generators recently received a renewed and expanded Lloyd’s Register certification, making the products eligible for sale to businesses requiring the high standards of quality, design and construction denoted by a Lloyd’s certification. The marine product line has held this distinction since 2007.
Lloyd’s Register is an internationally recognized standard in business processes and products. Obtaining Type Approval with Lloyd’s Register means a company’s manufacturing processes and products consistently demonstrate high levels of quality, design and construction. Many Cummins Power Generation customers will accept nothing less than Lloyd’s Register certification as demonstrative proof of product performance.
The recertification process started on January 27, 2011, when Lloyd’s Register conducted a quality assurance audit of the marine production areas located at the Fridley plant. Noah Cotton, Marine Application Engineer, led the effort for Cummins Onan, with support from several members of the Operations staff. As expected, the auditor was satisfied with Cummins Power Generation’s processes and the corresponding product demonstrations. Two days later, the marine product line, which includes the recently released MDKBV 23KW model, received the formal Type Approval Certificate.
“Renewing and expanding this certificate as our product portfolio has changed are very important to our success in the marine industry,” said Ming Han, Global Marine Marketing Manager for Cummins Onan.
