Caterpillar to Offer Complete Hazardous Location Solutions
Caterpillar Inc. announced the availability of comprehensive, complete hazardous location solutions for the oil and gas industry. Offerings range from components to complete power solutions and generator sets for a broad spectrum of applications. Varied explosion proof solutions are available today for most of the petroleum product line.
"We’re pleased to provide our global customers with a broad set of hazardous location solutions for their onshore and offshore applications," said Mark Helgren, Caterpillar integration manager. "We understand our customers needs for integrated safety solutions and are glad we can support their efforts to increase the safety of their operations."
Cat hazardous location solutions are fully customizable and designed to integrate with complex equipment. The power packs have all required protective equipment installed and are fully tested for conformity before they are delivered to the customer. Having a completely designed, tested and certified package from Caterpillar allows the customer to reduce project complexity and decrease certification-related risks. ATEX, NEC and IEC certifications are available.
"The hazardous location solutions are ideal for customers who build equipment for complex locations and would like to focus their resources on the driven machinery while we handle the design and certification work for the engine and ancillary components. We can save them considerable time and effort by doing that work for them," said Isaac Fox, Caterpillar application engineer. "Another benefit of selecting a Cat power pack is that it is supported in its entirety by our global dealer network, so the customer knows who to turn to when in need for service and parts."
