1515 ekW Mobile Diesel Generator Set

This rental generator set extends the Caterpillar line of rental power options improving efficiency and reduced owning and operating costs. The XQC1600 is equipped with an enhanced control system, designed to reduce installation and startup time. It is configured to switch between 50 and 60 Hz ratings at the press of a button. The control system features plant control programming and simulation, allowing complete system testing prior to generator set startup. Advanced product autonomy and monitoring capabilities reduce on-site manpower support requirements, minimize operator exposure to hazards, and permit site performance and maintenance data to be viewed, archived, and analyzed conveniently. Ideal in a stand-alone environment, combined with dozens of units in a power plant solution, or supporting utility systems worldwide.
