Inland Waterway

Inland Waterway

Inland cargo vessels work long hours and have to adjust to a variety of conditions in a single voyage. They need engines that are powerful and flexible enough to meet every need, but efficient enough to maintain their cost-effectiveness.

Caterpillar offers the industry’s widest range of engines and generator sets, capable of meeting the power needs of inland vessels without sacrificing fuel efficiency. Our engines are backed by decades of experience and innovation, and they deliver the reliable performance you need. And they’re backed by the full support of the Cat dealer network, for full access to parts and service any time, anywhere.

We offer industry-leading power ranges and tested, application specific products to make sure you get the optimal power for your job. Our reserve power means unloaded vessels can travel faster, and the power curve of our engines compensates for hull fouling and propeller wear to deliver peak performance.
