Caterpillar Extends Lineup of Mobile Power Solutions Meeting EU Stage V Emission Standards with 310 KVA Cat® XQP310 Generator Set

For Worldwide Release: April 2022

DEERFIELD, IL – Caterpillar Inc. today announced the introduction of the 310 kVA Cat® XQP310 generator set, the company’s latest mobile power solution meeting European Union (EU) Stage V emission standards for engines used in non-road mobile machinery.

Available now through the global Cat dealer network, the Cat XQP310 follows the launch of the 200 kVA Cat XQP200 mobile generator set in 2021 and demonstrates Caterpillar’s ability to meet the 90% reduction in nitrogen oxides when compared with the Stage IIIA standard, as well as other changes specified by Stage V standards.

With 12% more power than its predecessor, the Cat XQP310 is engineered for flexibility by easily switching between 50 and 60 Hz and across a range of voltages. This allows one machine to satisfy varying load requirements in diverse regions and applications, such as mining, manufacturing, oil and gas, and construction.

Fully designed and tested by Caterpillar, the Cat XQP310 uses proven technology to enable simple, reliable operation. It is equipped with Cat Connect technology to remotely track and manage the generator set and improve operational efficiency. Through a subscription, the telematics send real-time information on fuel level, AdBlue/diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) level, battery voltage, and run status. Connected assets support peak operation with timely insights that help customers better control costs, improve performance and reduce risks.

“As construction and mining activities rebound worldwide, the Cat XQP310 demonstrates how we are expanding our portfolio of mobile power solutions to deliver the performance and reliability customers need while helping them support their sustainability initiatives and address evolving emission standards,” said Tom Caldwell, global general manager for electric power rental solutions at Caterpillar.

Rental-Ready Benefits

Cat mobile generator sets meeting EU Stage V emission standards offer numerous features that make them ideal for rental applications. They are equipped with the EMCP 4.2B digital control panel, which provides all generator set controls and system indicators in a single, easy-to-access interface. Programmable logic controller (PLC) functionality improves reliability and flexibility for accommodating changes in processes or application requirements.

They are designed with a dual-wall fuel tank with an open bund that helps to protect the environment by containing spills, while Costal Insulation Protection (CIP) enables operation in harsh conditions.

Their wide, impact-absorbing base frames, customer connections isolated from circuit breakers, and optional CEE sockets are designed to facilitate transportation, set-up and use. Forklift pockets, dragging points, and a lifting arch help to simplify loading, unloading, and placement around the worksite.

Cat mobile generator sets meeting EU Stage V emission standards can use up to 100% hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), a renewable diesel fuel that can further reduce the carbon footprint of the engine and the environmental footprint of users.

All Cat mobile generator sets are available through the worldwide Cat dealer network. Cat dealers work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist with emergency rental needs and provide a comprehensive range of maintenance and services.
