Critical power...for critical care

Designed to be trusted.

You power the machines that sustain lives. Install a generation system that not only promises continuous power but has the history to prove it. Cat® generator sets are powering some of the world’s largest hospitals, supported by Cat uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, automatic transfer switches (ATS) and switchgear.

We’ve engineered our generator sets to operate at peak efficiency and to meet the latest EU and U.S. EPA emissions standards.

It is essential that your hospital has a backup generator that you can trust when the power goes out. Our knowledge and experience enable us to configure a power system to match the ongoing demands of your healthcare facility, or additional temporary power in emergencies. And our global team of experts are available for installation and on-going maintenance — giving you confidence in the care you offer.


Reliable Power For Essential Life Support

Edward Hospital & Health Services is a full-service, regional healthcare provider that offers a wide variety of medical specialties and programming from 28 locations in 10 communities throughout the western suburbs of Chicago. Located in Naperville, Ill., the main campus supports 4,700 employees, including 1,200 nurses and a medical staff of over 1,000 physicians. 

“We’ve seen many disasters strike hospitals throughout the U.S., and it’s very important to have backup power and services available because when the power goes off for whatever reason, patients still need to receive their care,” said Patti Ludwig-Beymer, vice president and chief nursing officer at Edward Hospital. “Patients will die if they don’t have the backup power available to them.”


Caterpillar offers standard and customized power solutions for all your applications, where you need it, whenever you need it.

Power Profile - Global Relay

In designing its data center, the company sought to create an environmentally friendly facility with a low- to zero-carbon footprint supported by cutting-edge green technologies. For example, instead of cooling the data center with traditional, energy-intensive air conditioning systems, the facility is cooled using evaporative cooling technology. This step alone results in a 50 percent electricity savings when compared to traditional data centers. As with any data center, Global Relay also needed a robust, reliable backup power system, but one that was as ecologically friendly as possible.
