Caterpillar Inc. announces the introduction of a family of remanufactured generator ends for standby, prime and continuous power applications using C32 and 3500 series Caterpillar engines. The first wave of remanufactured generator ends include 34 part numbers, which are available world-wide in 60Hz and 50Hz packages with ratings up to 2.5MW.

The Cat Reman generator end was designed with the customers' needs in mind. An affordable product support option, the remanufactured generator ends come with a factory warranty and same-as-new quality. All critical engineering updates get incorporated in a controlled manufacturing environment. This allows customers to reduce overall operating costs by taking advantage of the multiple lifecycles built into every Caterpillar product. In addition, Cat Reman generator ends are priced lower than the price of new because like all Cat Reman products and components, affordability and serviceability are two main drivers for every new product launch.

The C32 and 3500 series engines have been used for applications ranging from distributed generation to prime power for remote communities, industrial processing plants and rock crushing applications. The advantage of investing in a remanufactured generator end will allow for the most diversity in product coverage while at the same time offering reliable power at the right time and the right place.

"Our customers wanted an economical solution for their prime power application needs," said Doug Hampton, Commercial Manager for Cat Reman. "In today's economy, customers expect Caterpillar to deliver products that offer improved performance, low fuel consumption, uncompromised serviceability and systems integration that not only meets their unique set of priorities, but also comes with a price tag that doesn't pinch their pocketbook. We listened to these customer demands and this is our solution."

Caterpillar is the world's largest manufacturer of high-speed diesel generator sets and engines, offering the largest range of specifications available.
