CAT engineCaterpillar Oil & Gas has announced open order board for the Cat® G3516J gas engine

Rated at 1029 bkW (1380 bhp) 1,400 rpm, the updated engine features water cooled exhaust manifolds, which significantly lower surface temperatures without sacrifice to horsepower or emissions.

Bill Mermoud, market development consultant with Caterpillar Oil & Gas, said, “The G3516J is built on the proven reliability and durability of the G3500 engine platform.

“This year we are celebrating the thirty-fifth anniversary of our 3500 engine line and the excellent customer value this product line has delivered.”

The Cat 3500 engine platform is a key part of Caterpillar’s successful line of gas compression engines and the market leader for power, performance, durability, versatility, sustainability and unrivaled support worldwide.

The G3516J has the ability to burn a wide spectrum of gaseous fuels and the robust diesel design prolongs life and lowers owning and operating costs.

“The Ultra Lean Burn Technology (ULB) of the G3516J uses an advanced control system, an optimal turbo match, and a sophisticated combustion recipe to provide excellent air and fuel control. This allows for the lowest possible engine-out emissions, the highest fuel efficiency and improved altitude capability,” stated Mermoud.

The G3516J gas engine is available now for order through the Cat® dealer network.
