The Olympian Generator
Is there any generator out there that can really claim to do it all? From prime power at 100% load to reliable backup power when disaster strikes, the Olympian has you covered. No, the Olympian generator didn’t literally descend from Mount Olympus, but if you saw it in action, you’d be forgiven for thinking so. These generator sets can deliver reliable, economical power for a variety of applications. The versatility and raw power of these generator sets are what makes them so unique. Here’s why you should consider saving money with an Olympian generator.
Olympian generators are competitively priced when compared to other, similar generators. The reduction in cost does not come with a decrease in quality, however. Each generator is manufactured and tested at an ISO 9001 certified Caterpillar facility. You can rest assured that the same quality guarantee that comes with every CAT generator also applies to their more affordable Olympian line.
Suitable for Many Needs
The Olympian generator set is suitable for a wide range of needs. Whether you need prime continuous or standby power the Olympian can give it to you. They are suitable for:
- Data centers
- Healthcare Applications
- Oil & Gas
The Olympian is the true definition of a workhorse generator. You can find Olympian generators in use worldwide. Even as far as East Africa where global telecommunications company The Alan Dick Group is powering their facilities with Olympian generator sets.
Olympian diesel generator sets can deliver anywhere from 158 to 270 kW (197 to 338 kVA) of power. These generators are highly efficient with low fuel-consumption and are manufactured to comply with global emissions standards. Optional hybrid power packages — which we’ll discuss in detail later — add another layer of fuel economy to these already economical gen sets.
Reliability is Guaranteed
Caterpillar has a lengthy history of manufacturing reliable products, and the Olympian line is no exception. Each part of an Olympian generator is individually tested before it is assembled. Also, each Olympian generator is tested at above 100% of its rated load. That means there are no nasty surprises as you approach maximum load. The Olympian continues to deliver clean, reliable power in almost all conceivable situations. You also get the CAT quality guarantee and access to comprehensive support via your local authorized CAT dealer.
Hybrid Power Options
Diesel fuel prices continue to rise across the globe. That’s why, for those desiring hybrid power options, Olympian generator sets are available with Caterpillar’s hybrid power packages. The diesel-battery package, for example, includes the Olympian generator set and a long-life battery that work in tandem to provide power. The Olympian runs on diesel to charge the battery, then the battery kicks in and supplies power to the application. According to Caterpillar, this results in a 30-50% reduction in fuel usage. Hybrid packages are also available for renewable energy sources such as solar and wind and they achieve similar reductions in fuel usage.
A CAT is Never a Mistake
Each Olympian generator is manufactured to Caterpillar’s world-class standards. With a variety of options and a range of applications, there really is something for everyone here. Whether you need a reliable backup power source due to recently enacted laws or a prime generator for your construction site, there is an affordable Olympian generator for you. A CAT generator is never disappointing, but this is one you can get excited about.
