Nuclear

Customized safety, security, reliability, and support 

The nuclear industry demands the highest levels of commitment and quality standards from its suppliers and machinery. There are few industries where safety is more important in the design, operation and maintenance of the constituent machinery and components. With exacting standards and specifications for standby and emergency power, Cat® generators meet this challenge.

With the most extensive product range in the industry and comprehensive nuclear knowledge, the Caterpillar team is equipped to provide precise solutions when:

  • Replacing aging generators 
  • Maintaining an existing system 
  • Designing and installing an entirely new fleet

Across the broad spectrum of nuclear power applications: 

  • Emergency diesel generators (EDGs) - An immediate back-up power source to any reactor 
  • Station Black Out units (SBOs) - Responding to complete power loss 
  • Mobile power containers on trailers – Offsite and crisis response units acting as the ultimate source of power 

 

Improving Nuclear Plant Safety

When deadlines, budgets and installation environment are constrained, our modular SBO installations offer product completed in a controlled factory environment and installed at site within a few days. This sets a new benchmark in terms of deployment velocity and simplicity of installation, minimizing site works and onsite disruption. 

One such installation was implemented at the Dukovany Nuclear Power Plant in the Czech Republic. See how Caterpillar manufactured, delivered and installed a modular, fully integrated, post-Fukushima SBO solution in less than 12 months.
