Cat energy storage, microgrid and Dynamic Gas Blending solutions on show at MINExpo – EQ Mag Pro
At MINExpo 2021 next week, Caterpillar Inc is highlighting the company’s wide range of industry expertise combined with power solutions that, it says, deliver the reliability, efficiency and sustainability for boosting the performance of mining operations.
MINExpo 2021 is set to run from September 13-15 in Las Vegas, USA.
These power solutions range from Cat® Energy Storage, Cat Hybrid Microgrid Systems and fuel-flexible Dynamic Gas Blending (DGB) solutions, which are all included in the company’s portfolio of renewable power solutions.
The wide variety of these solutions supports customers’ sustainability goals and can be configured to minimise their greenhouse gas footprints while also reducing total cost of ownership, according to Cat.
Jason Kaiser, Vice President, Caterpillar Electric Power Division, said: “Power needs vary widely from mine site to mine site, and they are becoming increasingly complex as mining companies address the sustainability requirements of their environmental, social and corporate governance initiatives.
With our decades of experience in the mining industry and full portfolio of technologies – including numerous solutions that readily incorporate renewable energy sources – Caterpillar can supply integrated power solutions designed, installed, and supported from a single source to ensure superior performance over the long haul.”
Caterpillar says it offers a complete technology suite of hybrid energy solutions designed to reduce fuel expenses, lower utility bills, decrease emissions and reduce the total cost of ownership while increasing energy resiliency in even the most challenging environments.
Key components include Cat Photovoltaic Solar Modules, the Cat Master Microgrid Controller, Cat Connect Remote Asset Monitoring, Cat Bi-Directional Power inverters, Cat Energy Storage System modules and Cat generator sets.
