Project Name: Louisiana CAT Microgrid System
Location: New Iberia, Louisiana
Project Scope: The solar array consists of 1550 Caterpillar PVT115 thin film photovoltaic (PV) panels with a nameplate rating of 178kWp. The Cat solar panels are mounted on the roof of the high service bay area of the facility, and in turn feed five 30 kW SMA string inverters. The string inverters change the direct current (DC) produced by the PV panels to alternating current (AC), providing for a maximum output of 150 kW AC on a cloudless sunny day. The PV array is connected to the grid, and sells power back to the utility when the facility’s electrical load is less than the power from the PV array generated. The Cat Hybrid Microgrid Solution provides: increased energy efficiency with no reliance on the grid and optimal total cost of ownership, efficient power that can be produced where and when it is needed without transmission lines and transformer losses and high performance, scalable system designed and built using standardized building blocks that are easy and quick to install even in challenging environments.

Project Name: Genesis Pronghorn Terminal Unloading Station
Location: Douglas, Wyoming
Project Scope: Natural Gas Prime Power Application to Support Petroleum Rail Loading and Storage Facility in Central Wyoming. Fully Automated Controls for Rail Loading Operations. The project features four (4) Cat® G3412C LE rated @ 362ekW Continuous rated @ 480 VAC 60 HZ Generators, four (4) Sound attenuated enclosures rated at 80 dba at 7M with NFPA37 Gas Train, four (4) Unit mounted load banks with automated controls to ensure 50% load is continuously maintained on each individual generator set, CAT-ISO Generator LV Paralleling Switchgear in a NEMA 3R enclosure and a custom engineered elevated Cat-Walk for entire structure.
Project Name: Permanent Canal Closures & Pumps (PCCP)
Location: New Orleans, Louisiana
Project Scope: Composed of three stations, the Permanent Canal Closures & Pumps (PCCP) project was designed to block hurricane storm surges of the mouth of Lake Pontchartrain. PCCP is the final major post-Katrina improvement to the New Orleans area levee system, and replaces interim control structures that were put in place in the year following the storm. The 17th Street station consists of fifteen (15) Cat® C175-16 generator sets capable of producing 29 MW of electric power. The generator sets will supply power to six 5,000 horsepower (hp) and two 2,500 hp pump motors. A Cat C27 generator set will power the basic life safety operations in the event of a power outage. The Orleans Avenue Canal is powered by four (4) Cat® C175 2600kW generators and one C18 480V generator. The London Avenue Canal is powered by eleven (11) C175-16 2600kW generators and one (1) Cat® C27 480V generator. Cat Medium Voltage (4160VAC) Switchgear, Low Voltage (480V Utility Switch board and Automatic Transfer Switches (ATS) were installed at each station. Louisiana Cat also provided the remote radiators, mufflers, and silencers for the drain and recirculation systems at each station.
