Caterpillar Selected by CNPC Bohai Drilling Engineering Co. Ltd. to provide the First China Non-Road Stage III Compliant Land Electric Drive Modules

Beijing, China - Caterpillar Oil & Gas announced today that eight Cat® 3512C HD 50Hz rated at 1245 eKW at 1500rpm land electric drive drilling modules have been selected by CNPC Bohai Drilling Engineering Co. Ltd.  These are Caterpillar’s very first fleet of land electric drive drilling modules in China that meet China Stage III Non Road emission and arrived in China in January 2016. 

“We are very honored to be the first engine manufacturer to receive the China Stage III Non Road emission certification.” Alan Zhang, Caterpillar Oil & Gas Asia Pacific – China region sales manager, noted. “As the premier CNPC land drilling opportunity for generator sets in 2015, we are pleased CNPC selected Cat® power to deliver the trusted, uncompromised power our solutions are known for.”

Developed specifically to meet the application demands of power and load profile for modern electric drilling rigs, the Cat® 3512C HD is built upon the industry leading Cat® 3500 platform that has established a reputation as a proven, reliable power solution after logging countless hours in rugged oilfield applications. The modules deliver market-leading power density, feature a robust base design to withstand shock loads during loading and unloading operations as well as an oversized cooling system for 50C ambient capability at rated power. Furthermore, the Cat® land electric drilling modules are able to meet the lowered emissions standards without sacrificing performance or increased owning and operating costs.  They are also equipped with EMCP 4.3 control panel that meets industry standard protocols and simplifies daily engine condition monitoring. Manufactured in Lafayette, Indiana, packaged in Griffin, Cat® 3500 drilling modules provide customers with enhanced safety, performance and overall ease of use.   These Cat® 3500 drilling modules will also be manufactured and packaged with the same quality standards at the new Caterpillar Tianjin facility in China.
