Diesel generator sets receive certification

Cat diesel generator sets have met the IBC's seismic provisions.

04/10/2012


Cat diesel generator sets, ranging from 11 to 600 kW, have been certified to meet all published editions of the International Building Code’s (IBC) seismic provisions. In addition, enclosed models of these same generator sets have received certification for compliance with 90 mph wind-load provisions. The Cat generator sets rated from 180 to 600 kW received IBC seismic certification at SDS 2.2g, which corresponds with the spectral response acceleration threshold at New Madrid Fault, the highest value in the United States. The C1.5, C2.2, C4.4, and C6.6 gensets, rated 11 to 175 kW, have been certified to SDS 1.93g. These generator sets also received Special Seismic Certification Preapproval from the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD).
