Bi-Fuel Cummins Generator Disaster Relief


Bi-fuel Cummins Generators for Disaster Relief

Cummins Inc. is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of advanced diesel engines, which many disaster relief and emergency response agencies frequently use for reliable power supplies. Organizations like FEMA, DHS, and law enforcement may use these generators for natural disaster relief efforts, search and rescue missions, and other purposes.

Bi-fuel Cummins Diesel Generators Used in Natural Disaster Response and Relief

Ordinarily, Cummins diesel generators operate using strictly diesel fuel, but this can be problematic especially if natural disaster response and relief efforts require a long-lasting power source. To help extend the runtime and reliability of Cummins diesel engines, OptiBlend® offers solutions that facilitate bi-fuel power generation.

Using components such as a gas train, air gas mixer (AGM), and fuel control valve (FVC), it’s possible to introduce natural gas into the generator’s intake air stream. In turn, the generator requires less diesel to run at full power. Subsequently, bi-fuel Cummins diesel generators can run for longer periods of time if diesel supplies dwindle.

Cummins Diesel Power Generator Applications

There are many applications that rely on bi-fuel Cummins diesel power generators. The following are some of the key applications that can benefit from the use of bi-fuel power generation:

First Responders

Law enforcement, medical personnel, and other first responders may use Cummins diesel power generators to facilitate search and rescue and emergency medical response efforts. Specifically, these generators can supply power to temporary medical sites and shelters.


Many supply chain applications also use diesel power generators to supply power for all types of operations. For instance, water purification plants may use these generators for pumping and purifying systems. Food processing facilities and others could also use generators to power refrigerated storage units. Meanwhile, logistics operations could use diesel power generators to supply power to warehouses and other areas.


Communications facilities, water treatment, and sewage treatment facilities frequently use Cummins power generators.

Medical Care Facilities

Hospitals, emergency care facilities, and other medical facilities often use power generators to maintain their operations and keep patients safe. Potential applications in this industry include medication storage, communication and coordination, electronic records management, patient care and monitoring equipment, and facility systems such as HVAC systems and oxygen supplies.
