Caterpillar still believes in Diesel technology, as evidenced by the addition of 12 new models to the company’s rapidly growing series of Cat GC diesel generator sets for stationary standby applications and primarily targeted at the global electrical contractor market.

Cat added 12 models of GC diesel generator sets

Available to order today, the new Cat GC diesel generator sets targeted for Europe, Africa, the Middle East, CIS, South America and Asia Pacific include an additional six models with power ratings from 450 to 715 kVA for 50 Hz applications, as well as six from 350 to 600 kW for 60 Hz applications. Cat GC generator sets are value-engineered standby power solutions that simplify the specification process and substantially reduce quotation and delivery times while helping to meet the tight budget requirements of applications in this power range. Select models with commonly specified power outputs and configurations are stocked at larger Cat dealer locations for immediate delivery.

Jaime Mineart says

Since Cat GC generator sets were first introduced last year customers — especially electrical contractors — have quickly embraced their performance, value and convenience,” said Jaime Mineart, general manager for Caterpillar Electric Power. “The addition of these 12 models better positions Caterpillar to address medium-sized standby power applications with dependable, competitive solutions.”
