Caterpillar's New Line of Gas-Fuel Generator Sets

Press Release
Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Caterpillar Inc. introduce CG132, CG170 and CG260 gas gensets with electrical outputs ranging from 400 to 4,300 kWe

Available in both 50 Hz- and 60 Hz-rated models, CG generator sets are designed for maximum efficiency in extended-duty distributed generation and cogeneration (combined heat-and-power) applications.

 Built for flexibility, CG generator sets can operate on gases of varying quality, including natural gas; biogases such as landfill, digester and sewage gas; coke gas; and coal mine methane.

The new generator sets can be used in a variety applications, including industrial and commercial facilities, utilities, wastewater treatment plants, landfills, mines, greenhouses and farms.

“At a time when energy efficiency and sustainability are on everyone’s minds, the release of the CG product line provides customers superior value by using the very latest in gas engine technology,” said Willy Schumacher, general manager of the Caterpillar electric power gas business.

The CG product line is designed to be operated with complete cogeneration/tri-generation systems and can achieve total plant efficiencies of up to 90%. These low-emission generator sets can be fitted with exhaust aftertreatment systems to further reduce emission levels.

High-efficiency performance is achieved by establishing precise control of combustion in individual cylinders, a technology that also increases generator set reliability by balancing the load of each cylinder across the engine.
