The C27 diesel generator sets have been developed for your mission critical, standby and prime applications. Producing reliable power from 680 to 800 ekW at 60 Hz, each generator set has been designed to meet ISO 8528-5 transient response requirements and to take on 100 % rated load in one step. The C27 is certified as a low fuel consumption system as well as having a certificate for EPA Stationary Emergency (Tier 2). Seismic certification is also available for selected models, ensuring your generator sets are equipped for that unexpected disturbance. The integrated control system, including ATS and switchgear, ensures a consistent power supply and connection to your fleet through on-site and remote monitoring options. Our EMCP 4 control panel features a user-friendly interface and puts your management and diagnostics tools in one location. The EMCP 4.4 controller provides multi generator set paralleling capability, allowing you to use multiple generator sets for increased power output and improved reliability. It’s not just quality that matters but customization, choose from a broad range of accessories and bolt-on system expansion attachments. Discover our upgradeable packaging options to work with your spatial restrictions and environmental conditions. Our C27 generator sets are developed for such prerequisites, so that you can meet your specific power needs. Build in additional safety features with the UL 2200 and CSA certified package options.

I purchased a used C-15 from a customer of Greg Pool was a running take out. I picked up the engine from the Greg Pool Cat near Nags Head NC. They started they had done all service on this engine stated the hours and all items replaced during the life of engine under their care. I just recently put the engine in my boat after 2 years of building the vessel I find that everything they said about the engine was a LIE!!! Turbo was Bad, After cooler was not updated to the newer version for the C-15 it was missing a terminal Resistor that was clearly stolen off the engine which created a major issue with start up upon installation. Greg Pool Caterpillar stated the hours at 3300 we find out there were 5700 hours. I didn’t do a start up or test run which I regret because i was dealing with a Caterpillar dealer i thought i could trust them. Clearly not Buyers Be Ware if your dealing with Greg Pool Caterpillar in NC. I have 3 of the C-15 engines in my Work boats here in Tampa Fl and my Cat dealership here is Ring power who have done an amazing job to get me going with this Engine. I am very Disappointed in The Caterpillar company for allowing such A dealership to exist.
