"This is the first diesel generator set producing more than 2MW that has been certified by the EPA," said Robert Koval, global product director of Caterpillar electric Power Division.  "Our emergency standby customers will also realize benefits with this gen-set, particularly in areas with especially stringent local standards."

Caterpillar offers the widest range of Tier 4 Interim certified generator sets in the industry.
