Cat power systems for Suriname refinery

9 February 2010 - Caterpillar Power Generation Systems (Caterpillar PGS) has been selected to provide two medium-speed diesel generator sets for a cogeneration power plant that will produce over 25 MW of power in Paramaribo, Suriname.
Currently, the plant is operating two similar Cat generator sets, providing 14.3 MW to the Tout Lui Faut crude oil refinery owned by the Staatsolie Maatschappij Suriname State Oil Company. 
The new 16CM32 generator sets are scheduled to arrive in Suriname this month and are expected to be fully operational during the second quarter. The new equipment will bolster the plant’s steam output that the refinery relies on for its crude oil treatment, and will also provide more electricity to the local power company.
