Leading construction and mining equipment manufacturer Caterpillar announced today an expansion of its hydrogen-powered solutions, including Car generator sets capable of operating on 100% hydrogen.

The new generator sets will be available on s designed-to-order basis later this year, while the company is also launching commercially available power generation solutions that can be configured to operate on natural gas blended with up to 25% hydrogen.

While sources of clean hydrogen are in the early stages of development, the element is viewed as one of the key building blocks of the transition to a cleaner energy future, given its ability to act both as a clean energy carrier and fuel, as well as a CO2-neutral feedstock for the production of green chemicals.

The new product introductions follow the launch earlier this year by Caterpillar of a series of 2030 ESG commitments, with goals to improve the sustainability profile for all new products targeting reduced waste, improved design for rebuild/remanufacturing, lower emissions or improved efficiency.

Joe Creed, Caterpillar Group President of Energy & Transportation, said:

“At Caterpillar, we are working alongside our customers to understand their needs, and they are looking for reliable power sources that support their climate-related goals. Our continued investment in new products, technologies, and services is one way we’re supporting them with the quality solutions they’ve come to count on from Caterpillar.”
