Caterpillar Seguin Launches New Product Line
Wednesday, April 19, 2017
Josh Schneuker, executive director of the Seguin Economic Development Corporation, says Seguin's Caterpillar facility has installed an assembly line to build Cat branded gas and diesel powered generator sets which will be used in rental and retail markets around the world.
"Caterpillar is going to be -- with this new production line -- manufacturing generators and these can be used -- you can see them kind of anywhere you go, at hospitals, businesses, things like that as back up power, just in case. They are taking the engines that are manufactured in the facility already and then with this new production line, they're putting the housing component on top of that so that they're ready to go out onto the market as a full set power generator system," said Schneuker.
The gen sets are powered by an engine range of 2.2 Liter up to 18 Liter. CAT officials say from 27 to 500 eKW (Electrical Kilowatts) of power potential, Cat branded gas and diesel-fueled generator sets are built to world-class standards, for high efficiency, low fuel consumption and global emissions compliance.
