Courtesy: CaterpillarCaterpillar Inc. has made several enhancements to its C15 ACERT and C18 ACERT generator sets, improving their overall performance and enclosure options. Rated 410 to 700 kVA (365 to 600 kW), these enhancements to the Cat C15 and C18 diesel generator sets are suitable for prime or standby power, and are available in a wide range of configurations with optional equipment. A number of improvements were made to the enclosures, which are available in either sound-attenuated or high ambient temperature configurations. The enclosed models feature rear-mounted, side-by-side power and control panels and a standard, integral fuel tank base with drip tray, allowing for 8 hours of run time at 100% prime rating. The top tank plate is now sloped to contain any accidental oil, coolant, or fuel spills. An optional integral dual-wall fuel tank base for total fluid containment is also available.
