Caterpillar announces open order board for the 3512E Tier 4 Final Land Electric Drilling Engine
Caterpillar Oil & Gas is pleased to announce open order board for the Cat® 3512E Tier 4 Final Land Electric Drilling engine, the company said in its press release. For over 35 years the Cat 3500 engine platform has been the industry gold standard for heavy-duty diesel and gas engines worldwide. With more than 190,000 engines in the field and more than 3 billion operating hours in mining, rail, electric power, oil & gas, and marine applications, the 3500 exemplifies Caterpillar’s long-standing commitment to technical innovation and the success of our customers.
Manufactured in Caterpillar’s flagship Lafayette, IN facility — the 3512E engine meets EPA T4 final emission standards with the proven NOx reduction system (NRS) which is commonly referred to as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) technology. NRS technology doesn’t require a secondary fluid like diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to meet emissions regulation. Caterpillar has been using NRS technology since 1977 to meet emission regulations. “Caterpillar has deep expertise in using both NRS and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology to meet T4 final emission regulations. For land drilling applications, NRS technology is better suited due to the highly demanding and remote nature of the applications”, said Diana Hopkins, land drilling and production marketing manager for Caterpillar Oil & Gas.
Built standard with Cat Product Link™, its easy-to-use interface, called Product Link Web, allows insight into the operation, health, and productivity of your fleet. The 3512E also comes with Smart Engine Management System option, which automatically starts and stops engines on rigs to efficiently manage the power available on a rig. “Smart Engine Management System helps reduce the operating cost by operating the engines at its optimal load point and reducing the hours accumulated on engines,” said Hopkins.
The 3512E is now available to purchase through the global Cat Dealer Network. With more than 2,100 dealer locations world-wide, our dealer network is dedicated to more than your operation — we're committed to your reputation.
