The newly-rated Cat C175-20 from Finning Power Systems offers the greatest power output in the smallest footprint of any single high-speed diesel generator set available on the market.

Finning Power Systems, the UK & Ireland’s sole distributor of Caterpillar engines is now offering the C175-20, a high-speed diesel generator set producing up to 4 MW of power from a smaller footprint.

A single 4 MW C175-20 represents a 55 percent reduction in footprint when compared with two 2 MW Cat 3516B generator sets and, a 28 percent reduction when compared with a 4MW Cat 3612.


This increased power density is a key benefit for standby power for mission-critical power installations requiring larger safety loads.  It can reduce the ancillary equipment required, particularly when integrated into a Finning turnkey solution containing Cat switchgear, uninterruptible power supply (UPS), control systems and noise limiting acoustics, resulting in a more cost-effective installation.

The C175-20 can also be used to generate prime power for remote work sites and in peak shaving applications.

The new generator reduces operating costs by extending maintenance intervals. For prime and continuous power applications, oil change intervals are every 600 hours. For standby generator sets, a three-year oil change interval option is available. Equipment overhaul periods are also extended to 22,000 for 60 Hz units and 27,000 hours for 50 Hz units.
