Cummins African Growth
By Ian Cameron18 February 2019
Cummins Africa Middle East and OCP Group have announced the signing of a partnership related to the implementation of a Master Rebuild Centre (MRC) for Cummins High Horse Power engines in Khouribga, Morocco. The new facility will serve both North and West Africa and the scope of the agreement includes the on-site maintenance of the Cummins engines.
The building of the new MRC is a result of a feasibility study conducted by Cummins in several countries in Africa. The facility will be based in the OCP Group’s Industrial Ecosystem located at Complex Oued Zem Fertiparc in Khouribga. The MRC is expected to be operational by 2021 and will have an area of 14000 m2 and the capacity to complete 100 engine rebuilds per annum.
The centre receives Cummins High Horse Power engines at the end of their lives and brought in from 20 countries in the North and West Africa regions. These engines will be completely disassembled and inspected for defective components. They will then be re-assembled using Cummins genuine new or reconditioned parts and tested.The rebuilt engines will be finally returned to customers in the 20 countries in North and West Africa and are guaranteed as new.
