Caterpillar launched the Cat offshore power generation module, a turnkey scalable, single lift, modular power plant product. The unit offers full integration into a floating, production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel or a fixed production platform’s structural design. It was designed specifically to meet the needs of FPSO and fixed production platform’s main power applications in cases where a gas turbine was not ideal. Available from 4 MW to 17.3 MW per module, the unit runs on liquid, diesel, crude, and heavy fuel oil or gas. It also runs in dual fuel mode and meets current and future emission regulations to maximize flexibility and reduce operating costs. The modular layout can be expanded to provide power for future upgrades. The integrated design is complemented with flexible manufacturing and the power module is equipped with remote monitoring.
