Cat Power Solutions Certified to Meet Brazil's Standards

(Press Release)
Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Caterpillar announced that the RBNA Classification Society has certified the Cat 3500C diesel electric propulsion generator set packages to meet local content regulations in Brazil. RBNA, a division of ANP, certified that the 3500C products meet in excess of sixty percent local content.

 

As announced previously, Caterpillar expanded operations in Brazil in third quarter 2011 to package marine and oil and gas products in the Piracicaba, Sao Paulo, Brazil facility. “As we continue to expand our marine and petroleum operations in Brazil, a central strategic goal we have is to maximize our local content,” said Gregg Macdonald, Brazil 3500 Program Manager. “Improving our customers’ operations is our top priority, and we are pleased to offer high local content solutions, which enable our customers to take advantage of business incentives.”


Commonly utilized in Offshore, Inland Water Ways, Tug and Salvage and Cargo  applications, the 3500C diesel electric propulsion generator set packages have a stellar reputation as proven providers of consistent power and reliable performance. In many cases, the 3500 packages assembled in Piracicaba offer sufficient local content to meet BNDES special financing requirements. All engine ratings are IMO II certified.
 

All products sold in Brazil are backed by Caterpillar’s renowned customer support and the Cat dealer network, which offers round-the-clock service and support at more than 2,200 dealer locations in 200 countries. Three Cat dealers are conveniently located in Brazil - Sotreq, Marcosa and Pesa - to ensure that the company exceeds its customer’s expectations.
