Caterpillar introduces new diesel power module to meet emission mandate

Caterpillar Inc. has introduced the Cat XQ375, used for mid-sized power needs throughout North America. This  represents the company’s first mobile diesel generator set to meet Tier 4 Final emissions standards.  
 
Rated for standby operation at 375 ekW, the module offers simpler, faster voltage changes, and is powered by the fuel-efficient Cat C13 ACERT™ engine equipped with the Cat NOx Reduction System. The NOx reduction system captures and cools a small quantity of exhaust gas, then routes it back into the combustion chamber where it drives down combustion temperatures and reduces NOx emissions, Caterpillar said.
 
Over the next two years, Caterpillar plans to launch a full range of mobile diesel power modules that meet Tier 4 Final emissions standards, with standby ratings from 20 ekW to 500 ekW.
