Caterpillar Introduces New High-speed GenSet

Press Release

Caterpillar claim their C175-20 genset offers greatest power output of any high-speed diesel

The 20-cylinder C175 produces the greatest power output of any single high-speed diesel generator set available on the market, producing up to 4 MW of power, requiring less maintenance and provides the highest power density of any current high-speed generator set.

“The C175-20 represents a true breakthrough in generator set technology,” said Robert Koval, Investors Projects general manager of Caterpillar Electric Power Division. “Others have made promises about similar offerings, but the C175 is the largest high-speed generator on the market, period. And better yet, it’s available today.”

The C175-20 package is built on the proven C175 platform, which has demonstrated its reliability in Cat® machines and other power generation applications. The C175-20 is built with the same core engine parts as the C175-16, which has been in use across the globe in a variety of applications since 2008.

Because they’re built with the same basic engine design and to the same engineering targets, the C175-20 is as reliable and durable as the current C175-16 generator set. The high power density of the C175-20 generator set provides more power from a smaller footprint.

A single 4 MW C175-20 represents a 55 percent reduction in footprint when compared with two 2 MW 3516B generator sets and a 28 percent reduction when compared with a 4MW 3612.
