The C175-20 generator set by Caterpillar. Courtesy: CaterpillarCaterpillar Inc. has introduced the C175-20 generator set. The 20-cylinder C175 produces the greatest power output of any single high-speed diesel genset available on the market, producing up to 4 MW of power. It requires less maintenance and provides the highest power density of any current high-speed generator set. The C175-20 package is built on the C175 platform, which has demonstrated its reliability in Cat machines and other power generation applications. The C175-20 is built with the same core engine parts as the C175-16, which has been in use across the globe in a variety of applications since 2008. The high power density of the C175-20 generator set provides more power from a smaller footprint. A single 4 MW C175-20 represents a 55% reduction in footprint when compared with two 2 MW 3516B generator sets and a 28% reduction when compared with a 4MW 3612.
