New Cat® XQ1140 Power Module Leverages Twin-Pack Design to Maximize Mobile Performance and Flexibility

For Worldwide Release: March 3, 2021 
Release Number:  EEPR0521

DEERFIELD, IL – Caterpillar Inc.  today announced the introduction of the Cat® XQ1140 power module, a mobile power solution delivering application flexibility and improved efficiency through an innovative dual-generator set configuration.

Now available for 60-Hz applications in North America demanding up to 1000 kW of standby power or 910 kW of prime power, the Cat XQ1140 power module features a twin-pack design. Its two Cat C18 generator sets meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards and can be paralleled to share larger loads or operate independently to support different loads and voltages.

The Cat XQ1140 is ideal for any temporary power application, including healthcare facilities, municipal infrastructure, wastewater treatment plants and other utilities, mining and quarry sites, and agriculture. Its flexible design allows a single generator set to continue supplying power and optimize individual engine dispatch when demand is variable, N+1 redundancy is needed, or maintenance is required.

“Flexibility and fast mobility are absolutely essential for mobile power units,” said Tom Caldwell, general manager of Caterpillar Rental Power. “The innovative design of the Cat XQ1140 power module delivers reliability, redundancy, efficiency and convenience in a light and maneuverable package with low weight and a 40-foot length.” 

The Cat XQ1140 offers excellence in logistics mobility coupled with a new external user interface to answer the call for speed of delivery and safe operation. The interface allows a client operator or maintenance technician to remotely perform numerous functions such as start/stop, monitoring, breaker operation and alarm response. This capability reduces the need for an operator to enter the power module, improving safety and ease of operation.

Additionally, external fuel and diesel exhaust fuel (DEF) fill ports are positioned on the same side of the module for convenient single-side access.

All Cat mobile generator sets and power modules are available through the Cat dealer network. Cat dealers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist with emergency rental needs. Caterpillar’s service network ensures access to prompt, quality repairs by trained technicians at authorized locations.

Caterpillar has produced a video of a recent witness test that illustrates the key features and benefits of the new Cat XQ1140 power module. To view, visit For additional information about Caterpillar’s complete range of rental power solutions, visit or e-mail
