An auxiliary engine is available in a rating of 2,250 ekW at 1,800 rpm. Finally, the diesel electric propulsion solution is available in a 2,250 eKW rating at 1,800 rpm. Caterpillar  said its Cat 3516C Tier 4 certified marine power solutions are best suited for customers in the tug and salvage and offshore industries.
