New CAT® CG132B Generator Set Now Available From Finning

The new Cat® CG132B generator is now available from Finning UK and Ireland (Finning), enabling industrial and commercial facilities to further increase electrical efficiency in combined heat and power (CHP) and continuous electric power applications.

The first natural gas generator in its class engineered to meet an electrical efficiency of 43.5 per cent, the Cat® CG132B is rated for continuous power at 400, 600 and 800 kW for both 50 and 60 Hz. It is ideally suited for public utility, agricultural biogas, landfill, sewage plant, public building, leisure complex and mining applications.

The latest in the B Series product line, the CG132B’s updated package design introduces state-of-the-art components to increase overall plant efficiency. This includes a flanged generator set concept that contains a vibration-decoupled base frame, delivering improved reliability and reduced installation costs. 

Further improvements include the introduction of a watercooled turbocharger with a wider combustion air temperature, and an enhanced oil management system. As a result, the generator can now operate for 80,000 hours until its first major overhaul – a marked improvement on previous B Series models, which required an overhaul after 64,000 operational hours.

Furthermore, the CG132B features Caterpillar’s fully digitised Total Plant and Energy Management (TPEM) system. An advanced hardware and software solution, the TPEM system controls all power plant data and eliminates the need for multiple controls. It presents a wide variety of power plant data metrics via the generator’s user-friendly 15-inch touchscreen. Owners and operators can use this data to carry out systematic planning, shortening maintenance times.

“Designed to meet the evolving challenges of the power plant industry, the new CG132B generator increases efficiency and reliability while reducing ongoing maintenance costs,” said Nigel Thompson, Sales Manager – Gas Power Solutions at Finning. “Thanks to its modified combustion chamber, the CG132B’s service requirements and pollutant emissions have all been markedly reduced.

“Finning is the sole supplier of Cat® engines in the UK and Ireland, offering robust power sources that are easy to install and commission. We are delighted to offer the CG132B generator, which delivers the highest efficiency in its output category.”
