Gas engine reduces maintenance costs by up to 20 per cent

Paul Boughton

Finning Power Systems is now offering the efficient Cat G3516H gas engine as part of its power solutions for combined heat and power and continuous electric power applications.

Designed to deliver the lowest owning and operating costs in its class, the Cat G3516H is available for operation on natural gas fuel, with a power output of 2027 kWe at 50Hz.

The G3516H has been developed in response to customer demand for improved return on investment, and can be used in industrial and commercial facilities such as hospitals, data centres and manufacturing plants.

Increased electrical efficiencies are achieved with a new long-stroke engine design featuring high compression ratio steel pistons, and a high efficiency turbocharger and electrical generator. For applications isolated from a primary electric utility, the G3516H offers industry-leading load acceptance capability.

The G3516H features easy integration with a customer’s building management system, using non-proprietary communication infrastructure from Caterpillar’s new EMCP 4.3 genset controller.
