The G16CM34 engine is rated with 8,180 horsepower and will be used to deliver natural gas from processing plants and interconnections in Northwest West Virginia, Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio as well as to multiple delivery points in Michigan and to the Union Gas Hub near Sarnia, Ontario. This is the first sale of a G16CM34 natural gas engine to a pipeline supplier and from a Caterpillar dealer.
“We are very excited about the partnership with SEC Energy Products & Services,” said Guy Chason, general manager of Production at Mustang Cat. “This is our first sale of the G16CM34 natural gas engine and we’re happy to provide SEC with the most efficient, durable engine that suits their gas compression applications.”
The engine achieves high efficiency and low emissions by utilizing solenoid operated gas admission valves that are designed to deliver a precise gas flow which lowers cost. The engine features a new cylinder head, a complete new fuel system and “state of the art” electronic engine monitoring and governing systems. Other major design advances include a spark ignited pre chamber, electronically controlled gas admission valve for each cylinder, independent fuel pressure control for pre chamber and main chamber lines and detonation control for each cylinder.
Transportation of the product will be delivered to SEC Energy Products & Services over the course of 2015 with all shipments to be taken by December.
