Caterpillar Introduces Complete Overhaul Repair Solution for Gas Compression Industry

Houston, TX – Flexibility and simplicity are built into Caterpillar’s new Gas Compression Bundled Repair Solutions, enabling customers to shorten engine overhaul time and reduce owning and operating costs

Available in foundational, advanced and optimal levels, Gas Compression Bundled Repair Solutions contain all the genuine Cat® parts customers need to complete top end and major overhauls while maintaining their gas engines’ function and fuel efficiency.  The foundational kits and related components also simplify the parts ordering and handling process —minimizing the chance of errors and reducing turnaround time.

“When it comes to engine maintenance, our customers need the best solution in the shortest time at the lowest possible cost,” said Brent Skold, Caterpillar Oil & Gas marketing consultant. “Sold at bundled repair prices, these foundational kits and related components make ordering parts easier so customers can get back to work faster. They’re engineered for a reliable overhaul that boosts productivity and minimizes downtime.”

Foundational kits include components replaced 100% of the time during an overhaul, while advanced and optimal kits allow customers to add parts specific to their engine needs, repair options or parts inventories. Customers also have the option to customize their own foundational kits, selecting from a variety of gasket kits and additional components.

“We want to make it easy for our customers to select and order Cat parts for their next overhaul,” said Skold. “Our bundled repair solutions are the only repair offering designed specifically for the gas compression industry that includes genuine Cat parts. Plus, they’re backed by Cat dealer expertise, no matter where our customers are in the world.”
