Cat Electric Power Solutions for the Food Processing Industry

Power Solutions for Food and Drink Processors

Finning is on hand to power the low cost, sustainable production of food and agriculture products.

In any production environment, quality is paramount, especially in the processing of food or crops, where product contamination or spoilage can lead to stock losses and the significant cost of rework. Our range of power solutions is therefore designed to deliver clean and efficient power to ensure maximum uptime of your facility.


For agriculture production, we offer a range of cost-efficient combined heat and power (CHP) solutions to provide electrical power and heat for essential processes.

In greenhouse cogeneration applications, our Cat® gas engines provide power for lighting while also generating heat, which can be reused to warm the atmosphere and assist with plant growth. The CO2 released in the engine exhaust gases can also be reclaimed and scrubbed to serve as a fertiliser for the plants or crops.


Batching, mixing, dispensing or packaging? The energy required to power food processing environments is considerable and operators need to know they can rely on the performance of their on-site power solutions at all times.

Whether it’s the provision of emergency power or the installation of a cost-efficient CHP system, Finning engineers work closely with production teams to help reduce energy consumption and improve cost of ownership.

We offer the full range Cat standby diesel and gas gensets, combining high-efficiency operation with peace of mind, all backed by Finning’s tailored maintenance and support packages to keep your process running to schedule.
