Caterpillar Marine says it is due to unveil new power ratings for the Cat C175 propulsion engine for commercial vessels at the 2014 SMM Exhibition, currently underway in Hamburg, Germany. Designed specifically as a high speed power solution for commercial applications including ocean going and harbor tugs, the C175-16 propulsion engine is now available with ratings of 2239 bkW - 2550 bkW @ 1800 rpm. The new ratings extend Caterpillar Marine’s high-speed engine power range beyond the company’s already industry-leading 3516C HD engine. Cat C175 engine platforms with the new ratings are available to order now from the global Cat dealer network. “Designed to improve total vessel profitability by providing durability with unmatched power output, the C175 offers ample benefits to our tug and salvage customers as a durable, high performance performer,” Nathan Kelly, Caterpillar Marine product definition engineer noted. “Additionally, the platform also offers improved serviceability, providing more access to the cylinder heads and valve train components.” Ideal for large, high speed commercial vessels, the C175 engine utilizes proven ACERT technology to optimize turbocharging and aftercooling. Efficient combustion reduces engine wear and maximizes fuel, driving the C175-16 to pull the maximum amount of energy from each injection event
