Cat unveils next-gen Olympian
Redesigned diesel generator set for global roll-out
Caterpillar has unveiled its redesigned Olympian generator for the global marketplace.
The new range Olympian generator sets are rated 26 to 200 kVA (at 50 Hz) and 27 to 175 kW (at 60 Hz).
One of the most popular generator set options – and a major focus of the redesign – was the enclosure.
Constructed of galvanized steel with durable powder-coated paint, Cat said it has built the generator to withstand harsh environments, resistance to rusting and other effects from weathering.
Caterpillar claims that improvements to the generators include ‘more robust material construction, increased accessibility, state-of-the-art controls, and greater performance in warmer climates and at higher altitudes”.
“We have conducted extensive global research to identify the enhancements most desirable to our generator set customers,” said Caterpillar Inc. electric power product manager Robert Koval.
“Over 100 key customer features were identified and evaluated to drive the re-design. Our product engineers are continually working to build value for our customers. This next-generation Olympian is evidence of that commitment.
"The new packaging allows for more streamlined installation and servicing. Customers can expect more features standard, in addition to a wide range of configuration options.”
