For reliable power they can count on day and night, many of our customers choose our Cat® diesel generator sets. Designed for thousands of hours of trouble-free operation, a diesel generator is both economical and durable, offering many great benefits:

Cat Diesel Generator
  • Longer running times per fill-up
  • Greater fuel economy
  • Lower long-term operating costs
  • Reduced maintenance costs

When you add it up, a diesel generator can offer great value and big savings over other power generation sources. Here at Empire, we offer a wide range of Cat diesel generators to cover all of your needs. You may need a temporary power source for a remote job site, a backup power system for a critical installation or a permanent power source to run a variety of equipment.

In all of these cases, Empire has a Cat diesel generator set to meet your requirements.



How to Choose Your Diesel Generator Set

When you’re looking to buy a diesel generator set, you need to select a model with adequate power for the equipment you plan to run. Start by listing all of your equipment and checking the information plates for the load rating. Don’t forget to include equipment that might not get used every day, but will occasionally be powered by the generator set. Also, pay attention to equipment that has a high initial peak load (like electric motors) that might cause a spike during startup.

Once you know the output you’ll need, you can start looking at our various Cat diesel generator sets. Choose one of our models with power outputs ranging from 36 ekW to 17,460 ekW. For each model listed here on our site, you’ll find practical information such as:

  • Minimum rating (in ekW)
  • Maximum rating (in ekW)
  • Voltage (in volts)
  • Frequency (in Hz)
  • Speed (in RPM)
  • Emissions and fuel strategy information (for compliance concerns)

We also list the diesel engine details, such as displacement, compression ratio, governor type and fuel system type. With all of this information, you can be confident you’re choosing the Cat diesel generator set that’s adapted to your requirements and expectations and will reduce your downtime.

Choose the Options You Want

Once you’ve identified the size and model of diesel generator that suits your application, it’s time to choose the features and options you’d like. You can choose from factory-designed options that make your diesel generator even more practical and easy to use:

  • Different control panels
  • Industrial, residential or critical exhaust mufflers
  • UL-Listed or IEC-Compliant circuit breakers
  • Oversized batteries and jacket water heating systems
  • Integral or sub-base fuel tanks
  • Automatic transfer switches (ATS)

These are just a few of the options available on our range of Cat diesel generator sets. Choosing the features that suit your installation allows you to get more out of your generator. And because they’re factory-designed, you know they’ll work perfectly with your Cat generator.
