Caterpillar Marine Announces Upgrades to Reman Models in Commercial and Yachting Applications

Miami, Florida – Caterpillar Marine is pleased to announce upgrades to the Cat® Reman Marine 3116 and 3126 model engines ranging from 300 to 420 bhp for use in both commercial and yachting applications. Beginning mid to late Q2 of this year, Cat 3116 and 3126 Reman mechanical engines will come standard with wiring harness, junction box and associated sensors, for ease of installation.

“We listened to our customers and dealers who gave us feedback that dressing out these models to make them more drop-in ready would save time and money on installations,” said Bo Cox, Marketing Consultant supporting Caterpillar’s Remanufacturing Division. “This upgrade will reduce installation and labor costs, ultimately saving our customers money. At Caterpillar, we succeed when our customers succeed. We are committed to listening to what our customers have to say and continuously improving our product offerings.”

Caterpillar offers Marine Reman products ranging from 300 to 700 bhp; Cat® Reman engines provide maximum value by providing improved productivity and efficiency at a fraction of the cost of new, while reducing impact on the environment.

As the world’s leading remanufacturer of diesel engines, Caterpillar employs state of the art techniques, advanced remanufacturing processes, and genuine Cat parts to return each engine to same as new specifications. “Remanufacturing is more than rebuilding,” said David Holt, marine industry specialist for Caterpillar’s Global Aftermarket Marketing and Brand Division. “It’s returning engines and components to their original performance specifications and latest engineering changes using salvage technologies, strict reuse guidelines, advanced manufacturing systems and unequaled quality control.” Restoring original performance is possible since new Cat engines and engine components are built to be remanufactured for a second life.

In addition to offering our customers a more cost-effective product, Cat Reman is also good for the environment. Caterpillar’s remanufacturing makes sustainable progress possible every day by reducing waste, lowering greenhouse gas emissions and minimizing the need for raw materials to produce new parts. Cat Reman products are backed by the applicable Cat parts or new engine warranty and by the highly trained team of experts in the worldwide Cat Dealer network.

To learn more and meet the Reman experts, contact your local Cat dealer today or stop by the Caterpillar exhibit #F407 at the Miami International Boats Show or at the Miami Yachts Show on Collins Avenue at exhibit C-13/CC35-37. Both shows will be held February 15 – 19 in Miami, Florida.
