Caterpillar helps electric utilities with gas power solutions.

The Cat G3516H Generator Set

Caterpillar is pleased to introduce the G3516H natural gas generator set, the first model included in the new high-efficiency H Series of products. Enabling technologies deliver electrical power up to 2027 kWe at 44.7% electrical efficiency (ISO, 1.0pf) while achieving the lowest total owning and operating costs in its class.

Developed based on customer demands for improved return on investment for combined heat and power (CHP) and continuous electric power applications, the new generator sets can be used in industrial and commercial facilities such as hospitals, data centers, manufacturing plants, and greenhouses as well as in distributed generation power plants by electric utilities. The new H Series is built on the legacy of the proven G3500 generator set platform, now with over 8,000 units and 9,200 MWe of power installed worldwide. With over 35,000 test hours accumulated across several global locations, the G3516H has demonstrated itself to be a robust power plant that is also very easy to install and commission.
