Release Number: EEPR1620

DEERFIELD, IL –Caterpillar Inc. today announced that the WestCare Foundation has chosen Cat® standby power solutions for three of its health and human services centers in the southeast U.S. 

WestCare’s facility management team selected Cat GC diesel generator sets for the Judi Patton Women and Children Center in Elkhorn City, Ky.; The Village South residential and outpatient treatment center in Pembroke Pines, Fla., and; the WestCare Florida Gulf Coast facility in St. Petersburg, Fla. Local Cat dealers in Kentucky and Florida will provide maintenance, repairs and fuel treatment for these locations under a Customer Value Agreement. 

Previously, WestCare selected Cat generator sets for the Hal Rogers Appalachian Recovery Center in Ashcamp, Ky., as well as the WestCare Nevada Harris Springs Ranch near Las Vegas.  

“As a nonprofit, we look for systems that are bulletproof and take care of themselves so we don’t have to worry about them,” said Jeramy Salyers, deputy administrator for FitzHouse Enterprises, the arm of WestCare that manages its facilities and vehicle fleets nationwide. 

“We chose to go with Cat generator sets because of their reputation for quality and dependability. They are the premier engines in the market, and longevity is important to us.”

Cat GC diesel generator sets are configured with an optimized mix of common features that offer excellent customer value by delivering performance with a minimal footprint. 

The line includes eight new models with standby power ratings from 250 kW to 600 kW that are engineered to Caterpillar’s high standards for reliability and productivity, with best-in-class support from the Cat dealer network.  

Available now in North America for applications in 60 Hz operating environments, Cat GC generator sets include the customary two-year warranty for standby power solutions from Caterpillar, with a suite of additional extended service coverage options available. Caterpillar supplies matching enclosures for applications requiring noise attenuation or protection from the elements.  

The generator sets can be equipped with Cat Connect Remote Asset Monitoring, which provides data visualization, reporting, and alerts that are accessible from anywhere in the world through an easy-to-use web interface.
