Caterpillar announces plans to meet EPA Tier 4 requirements

New standards to be met via integration of next-generation emission reduction technologies developed through direct work with Caterpillar's oil and gas customers.


Caterpillar has announced oil and gas specific product plans to meetupcoming U.S. EPA Tier 4 emissions regulations that take effect in 2011 forproducts with power ratings above 130 kW (175 bhp).

To develop a full product line of Tier 4 solutions, Caterpillar has beenworking directly with oil and gas customers to determine key requirements totailor solutions that reduce emissions, maintain or improve durability,minimize OEM equipment redesign costs, and lower owning and operating costs.Products in this line include Tier 4 interim solutions up to 1200 bhp acrosseight engine models.

In addition, and in response to the needs of petroleum customers,Caterpillar will offer Tier 4 final ratings of the Cat C18 ACERT (>751 bhp),C27 ACERT, and C32 ACERT products ranging in horsepower from 765 bhp - 1125bhp., including pressure pumping, cementing and well

fracturing.  These Tier 4 Final compliant engines will be

available in 2010, more than four years earlier than required.  According to Caterpillar, this

strategy will significantly lower engineering costs for customers and reduce

overall environmental impact and fleet complexity.
