In a facility previously occupied by Caterpillar Remanufacturing in Singapore, Caterpillar Marine is establishing a new Marine Center. Facilities will feature new manufacturing capability for Caterpillar Marine’s Propulsion business to build the company’s range of MTA azimuth thrusters and MTT tunnel thrusters.
According to the company the new Marine Center will have the capability to produce the full line of thrusters including additional capacity to produce the new MTA 9 with rated power exceeding 3.5 MW, as well as Caterpillarâ€˜s expanded series of thrusters dedicated to the tug market. The center will also house members of Caterpillar Marine’s Propulsion Systems Solutions team, who work on the development of advanced and innovative marine propulsion system concept designs.
This location already functions as Caterpillar Marine’s sales and service hub covering MaK™, Caterpillar Marine and EMD branded medium speed diesel engines for the Marine, Power Generation and Oil and Gas markets throughout the Asia Pacific and Oceania region.
In addition, the Marine Center will enable an expansion in Cat Medium speed engine training services for customers in the region, and establish a new Caterpillar Propulsion Training center for customers and dealers on Caterpillar Propulsion thrusters and controls, Caterpillar said.
