Caterpillar announced that the company has added two new mobile solutions to its lineup of mobile diesel generator sets meeting European Union (EU) Stage V emission standards.

Now available through the Cat dealer network, the Cat XQP20 and Cat XQP550 meet the requirements of Stage V standards, including a 90% reduction in nitrogen oxides when compared with the Stage IIIA standard.  Caterpillar now offers five mobile generator sets from 20 to 550 KVA of prime power that meet the current European standard.

Rated at 20 KVA for prime power, the Cat XQP20 is a suitable option for both owners and rental customers requiring reliable power for construction, industrial and commercial applications, as well as outdoor events. The Cat XQP550 is rated for up to 550 KVA of prime power and meets specification requirements for a broad range of environments and applications, including manufacturing, oil and gas, mining, and construction.

The addition of these mobile generator sets expands our ability to serve our European customers through a growing range of easy-to-operate power nodes that meet their rigorous application requirements while meeting EU Stage V emission standards,” said Tom Caldwell, global general manager for electric power rental solutions at Caterpillar.

Caterpillar mobile power solutions: ready for jobsites

Caterpillar’s new mobile power solutions offer numerous features ideal for rental applications. The Cat XQP20 is equipped with easy-to-use GCCP1.3 digital controls and optional CE sockets, allowing power to be easily distributed across a worksite.  

Meanwhile, the Cat XQP550 uses the XQCP digital control panel, which provides all generator set controls and system indicators in a single, easy-to-access interface. Additionally, programmable logic controller (PLC) functionality improves the reliability and flexibility of the Cat XQP550 for accommodating changes in processes or application requirements.

Both mobile solutions feature Cat Connect technology to remotely track and manage, improve operational efficiency, control costs and reduce risks. It supports optimal operation by offering timely insights into performance, such as fuel level, run status and battery voltage.

The Cat XQP20 and Cat XQP550 are designed with a dual-wall fuel tank with an open bund that helps to protect the environment by containing spills, while coastal insulation protection (CIP) enables operation in harsh conditions. 

Their wide, impact-absorbing base frames, customer connections isolated from circuit breakers, and optional CEE sockets are designed to facilitate transportation, set-up and use. Forklift pockets, dragging points, and a lifting arch help to simplify loading, unloading, and placement around the worksite.

Cat mobile generator sets meeting EU Stage V emission standards can use up to 100% hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), a renewable diesel fuel meeting EN15940.

All Cat mobile generator sets are available through the worldwide Cat dealer network. Cat dealers work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist with emergency rental needs and provide a comprehensive range of maintenance and services.


FPT Industrial: let’s go, XC13

The XC13 surely sounds agnostic in FPT Industrial’s unofficial nomenclature; it comes, indeed, with a tripartite certification: Euro 6E (winking an eye at the upcoming Euro 7), methane gas and also biofuel, with a link to hydrogen. Andrea Abbà, FPT’s product marketing manager, told us about dialogui...
