Cat Electric Power Solutions for the Chemicals Industry

Power Solutions for the Chemical Industry

Modern chemical processing plants are some of the largest energy users in industry and the cost of generating the power needed to keep production running 24/7 can become a serious drain on profitability.

At Finning, we work with production and operations managers to provide dependable, reliable on-site power solutions that offer low lifetime cost of ownership and fast payback periods, to help reduce energy consumption and improve operational efficiencies.

We offer a wide range of fuel-efficient Cat®  diesel and gas gensets, together with both rotary and static uninterruptible power systems (UPS), combining high-efficiency operation with peace of mind.

Combined heat and power (CHP) in particular is now the preferred choice of many chemical plants.  It provides a low-cost, dependable source of power from an on-site generator package, which not only reduces the reliance on grid electricity but can be tailored to meet exact production demand.  At the same time, it enables the by-product heat that would otherwise be wasted to be reclaimed and transferred to manufacturing processes across the site, providing further cost reductions.  

Finning has been designing, packaging and commissioning CHP packages for the chemical industry for more than a decade.  By combining highly efficient Cat gas engines with our own engineering expertise, we can develop an integrated system that will deliver the savings necessary for improved bottom-line performance.

We also offer a range of tailored maintenance and support packages to keep your process running to schedule, day or night.
