For Worldwide Release: October 11, 2017

Acquires intellectual property from Enercon Engineering, Inc.

PEORIA, IL – Caterpillar Inc. today announced that the company has expanded its capabilities to deliver factory-tested custom enclosures and containerized solutions for diesel and gas electric generator sets produced in North America for the global power generation market.

To do so, Caterpillar has purchased key intellectual property and leveraged additional operational assets from Enercon Engineering, Inc.  Caterpillar will operate manufacturing and testing centers of excellence near its production facilities for power solutions in East Peoria, Ill., and Griffin, Ga.

“This expansion of our capabilities in custom power solutions allows Caterpillar to quickly add proven designs and market expertise that meet demanding customer requirements and provide critical application support while maintaining business continuity,” said Brian Kruse, global solutions manager for Caterpillar. “By acquiring the technology and expertise to produce custom enclosures and containerized solutions, we can leverage the benefits of vertical integration to improve our ability to deliver best-in-class, customer-focused solutions.”

These added capabilities enable Caterpillar to engineer and manufacture enclosures and containerized solutions in North America with tailored components and performance options that meet specific application and regional standards.  Typically ranging from 200 kW to 4 MW, these solutions can accommodate diesel and natural gas fuel sources, mobile or skid-mounted configurations, sound attenuation requirements, and operation in a wide range of environmental conditions.

The new packaging facilities will join Caterpillar’s dedicated operations in Larne, Northern Ireland in delivering custom power solutions to customers around the world.

Caterpillar is a leader in the power generation marketplace with power systems engineered to deliver unmatched durability, reliability and value.
