Caterpillar Marine announced the launch of the Cat C32B high performance 2000 HP (2025 MHP) marine engine with a rated engine speed of 2,300 rpm
The company said the engine is set to meet emerging market demands and expands the power capability of the C32 high-performance product line, delivering a 5% power increase over existing C32 ratings.
The C32B is capable of reducing noise levels by 25% under low-speed as a result of its unit injection fuel system. Additional benefits include power density improvement, updated electronics (ADEM 6 ECM) and an enhanced unit injector fuel system, enabling multiple injections to help improve noise and vibration characteristics from combustion.
Caterpillar Marine product strategy manager Allen Bowman said “We are very excited to offer our customers more power with the C32B engine, while also helping to reduce engine noise and continuing to provide excellent engine performance and reliability.
"The C32B will provide expanded opportunities for our customers for newbuilds and repower options, which is generating excitement about the future of the C32B and what it will bring to the market."
The C32B sports a similar look to the existing C32 engine. The engine has applications with recreational vessels such as yachts and will be available with the same emissions certifications as the current C32 high performance ratings, including EPA Tier 3 Recreational and IMO Tier II.
The Cat C32B marine engine will be available to order in Q3 2020.
