The new land electric drilling module is available now to order from the global Cat dealer network.

“For Caterpillar, meeting emissions regulations without sacrificing powerful performance is a driving factor in our development process for Asia Pacific,” Alan Zhang, Caterpillar Oil & Gas Asia Pacific China regional sales manager noted. “We’re pleased to offer a proven platform that meets China Stage III Non-Road Mobile emissions levels for our loyal land drilling customers.”

Cat land electric drilling modules have become the preferred power solution for land drilling rigs in the Asia Pacific region as customers seek product reliability backed with the support of the extensive Cat dealer network. The Cat 3512C (HD) module offers several key features and benefits engineered specifically to meet the power and load profile of the region’s modern electric drilling rigs. Built upon the industry-leading 3500 platform, the Cat 3512C (HD) is equipped with a rugged base to handle harsh loading and unloading operations. Customers benefit from the module’s long overhaul life with core engine components designed for reconditioning and reuse at overhaul.

Additionally, the ease of installation has been enhanced due to design commonalities shared with the Cat 3512B drilling package. Customers will find the same three-point mount engine and generator base on the Cat  3512C HD module as previous Cat  3512B drilling packages in addition to similar attachment offerings. Beyond fleet flexibility, the new Cat  3512C HD solution also incorporates Cat Product Link to maximize well site efficiency and increase module productivity.
