Offshore Generator Sets

Oil and gas producers have relied on Caterpillar since the industry's earliest days. For 60 years, we've powered the petroleum business on land. Now we go with it onto the ocean, hundred of miles out, thousands of feet down.

6CM20C

The 6CM20C generator set brings to the offshore industry a legacy of proven reliability and durability in the marine industry. CM offshore generator sets feature standard modular designs, engine-mounted pumps and filters, and a full range of factory attachments that make their installation simple and efficient. Ideal applications for the 6CM20C offshore generator sets are main power on-board production vessels and platforms. Complete package offerings are MCS type-approved and compliant with IMO Tier II emissions standards, making their integration into vessels and platforms a simplified operation. Cat generator sets are backed by the worldwide network of Cat dealers ready to support your operation with technical support, service, parts, and warranty. Cat 6CM20C offshore generator set.
