Caterpillar's Cat 3516C-HD and Cat C32 diesel generators offer power nodes
Caterpillar has introduced two 50 Hz extensions of the company’s line of diesel generator sets configured to offer fuel-efficient power nodes. The Cat 3516C-HD diesel generator set is rated at 2750 kVA (2200 ekW) for standby and mission critical applications, while the Cat C32 diesel generator set is now available in a 1250 kVA (1000 ekW) power rating for standby and mission critical needs.
The Cat 3516C-HD diesel generator set leverages a four-stroke turbocharged-aftercooled engine platform to offer a power density of 35 kVA/liter. The Cat 3516C-HD package features a 25 percent smaller footprint than comparable engines.
The Cat C32 diesel generator set employs a four-stroke engine built on the ACERT platform to offer a power density of 39 kVA/liter in a 8.9 square-meter (96 square-foot) footprint.
Both generator sets are configured with the Cat SR5 generator, which is matched to the performance and output characteristics of Cat engines. Offering single-point access to accessory connections, this generator package supplies motor starting capabilities.
Cat 3516C-HD and Cat C32 diesel generator sets have an air-to-air aftercooler (ATAAC) cooling system with a radiator core.
