Caterpillar introduces new diesel generators

Caterpillar Inc. has launched two new 50 Hz extensions of diesel generator sets that will offer fuel-efficient power nodes, addressing the growing demand for backup power.

The Cat® 3516C-HD diesel generator set is rated at 2750-kVA for critical applications, while the Cat C32 diesel generator set is rated 1250-kVA. Caterpillar’s generator sets are optimized to minimize fuel costs and reduce lube oil consumption.

The Cat 3516C-HD diesel generator uses a four-stroke turbocharged-after cooled engine platform, ideal for data centers and other applications that require a significant amount of power; the Cat 3516C-HD uses a 25 percent smaller footprint than comparable engines.

The diesel generators also include ACERT technology, allowing maximum performance and efficiency through lower combustion temperatures, reducing emissions and prolonging the life of the generators.
