Caterpillar launches new natural gas genset

Caterpillar has launched a new natural gas generator set.

The Cat G3512 (pictured) is rated for standby power at 750 kW or 1000 kW at 60 Hz and the company

said it is aimed at the North American market.

Caterpillar said that the genset is ‘ideal for emergency, legally-required or optional standby systems

such as office buildings, data centres, retail complexes, schools, government buildings, universities and

research facilities’.

It added that with an updated package design, the G3512 is modelled after the standby diesel solution

to minimize installation costs and commissioning time on-site.

The engine is built on established 3500 technology and features a design with steel pistons and a

protection monitoring system.

Featuring Caterpillar’s new EMCP 4.3 generator set controller, the G3512 easily integrates with building

management systems. The expanded set of features also includes complete SR5 generators, gas train,

package-mounted radiators and simplified wiring connections.

Mike Yohe, product manager at Caterpillar Energy Solutions, said the genset ‘checks all the boxes for the

standby market segment’.

‘This is built upon a robust diesel 3500 platform with a proven track record, and dependability is critical

for customers who use these generators during utility outages.’
