Caterpillar has added 12 new models to its growing series of Cat GC diesel generator sets for stationary standby applications, and primarily targeted at the global electrical contractor market.

The new gensets, aimed at markets in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, CIS, South America and Asia Pacific include six models with power ratings from 450 to 715 kVA for 50 Hz applications, and six from 350 to 600 kW for 60 Hz applications.

The Cat GC range is aimed at small- to medium-sized standby applications, such as health clinics, manufacturing, agriculture facilities, municipal infrastructure, wastewater treatment plants and other utilities, commercial enterprises, and office buildings.

The full range now includes 18 models with power ratings from 33 to 1100 kVA for 50 Hz applications and 15 models with power ratings from 30 to 600 kW for 60 Hz applications. 19 models from 40 to 600 kW are also available for 60 Hz applications in North America. All can be equipped with Cat Connect Remote Asset Monitoring, which provides data visualisation, reporting and alerts that are globally accessible through a web interface.
