With outputs ranging from 400 kWe to 4300 kWe, the CG132, CG170 and CG260 gensets can run on gases of varying quality, including natural gas, biogases such as landfill, digester and sewage gas, coke gas and coal mine methane.

Richard Russett, general manager of Finning, said the new line will significantly expand his company’s ‘customer options for sustainable solutions’.

Available in both 50 Hz and 60 Hz models, the CG range is designed for maximum efficiency in extended-duty distributed generation and cogeneration applications including industrial and commercial facilities, utilities, wastewater treatment plants, landfill, mines, greenhouses and agriculture.

Caterpillar took on the CG range through its acquisition of MWM in November 2011.
