Caterpillar introduces new standby power solutions

Caterpillar has announced the launch of 31 new models of Cat GC diesel generator sets, the company’s new range of value-engineered standby power solutions specifically targeted for the global electrical contractor market.

Now available for 50Hz and 60Hz applications worldwide, Cat GC generator sets simplify the specification process and substantially reduce quotation and delivery times while helping to meet the tight budget requirements of the vast majority of stationary standby power applications in this power range. Select models with commonly specified power outputs and configurations are stocked at larger Cat dealer locations for immediate pickup and delivery.

The 31 new models now available include:

  • Eleven with power ratings from 33 to 400kVA for 50Hz applications globally
  • Eleven from 40 to 200kW for 60Hz applications in North America
  • Nine from 30 to 175kW for 60Hz applications outside North America

“The electrical contractor market is responsible for commissioning the largest share of standby power solutions for small- to medium-sized standby applications,” says Jason Kaiser, vice president for Caterpillar Electric Power. “We have specifically configured Cat GC generator sets with electrical contractors in mind, and we have now designed a product that offers Caterpillar’s renowned performance at an exceptional value.”

Designed and manufactured to Caterpillar’s exacting standards for efficiency, reliability and productivity, Cat GC generator sets are configured with an optimised mix of common features that deliver Caterpillar’s renowned performance and excellent customer value with a minimal footprint.

Powered by field-proven Cat engines and offering best-in-class support from the Cat dealer network, Cat GC generator sets are ideal for most typical small- to medium-sized standby applications, such as health clinics, manufacturing, agriculture facilities, municipal infrastructure, wastewater treatment plants and other utilities, commercial enterprises and office buildings.

The new models join the current range of eight Cat GC generator set models from 250kW to 600kW introduced in 2020 for 60Hz applications in North America, as well as the 1100kVA model launched in October 2020 for 50Hz applications in Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and the Middle East.

They can be equipped with Cat Connect Remote Asset Monitoring, which provides data visualisation, reporting and alerts that are globally accessible through an easy-to-use web interface.
