Solar Turbines provides best-in-class energy solutions with turbomachinery for power generation. In the marine industry, our wide range of solutions will maximize availability, reliability and value throughout the life of your vessel's propulsion system.
Key benefits include:
For over 50 years, as a wholly owned subsidiary, Solar Turbines has taken pride in continuing Caterpillar’s marine power tradition. Solar has more than 3 billion operating hours and over 16,000 units sold into a wide range of demanding applications using our combined cycle gas turbine packages.
With environmentally friendly liquified natural gas (LNG) as our fuel, Solar’s marine power solutions can provide safe, clean, and quiet power for main and auxiliary essential or non-essential services, along with all required certification. Available for all commercial or military vessels and sizes, our turbines work for ferries, cruise or utility and supply ships. While accepting a wide range of fuels, our gas turbines will exceed IMO NOx Tier III requirements and eliminate typical scrubber or urea costs. Your passengers and crew will always experience safe and quiet power for their journey.
Tons of power – in very little space. As an alternative to reciprocating engines, gas turbines offer extremely low weight and energy dense propulsion options. Solar’s wide-ranging sizes of gas turbines provide efficient combined cycle/cogeneration systems that will work for your entire fleet of vessels. With 30,000 hours between overhaul, and minimal maintenance, our gas turbines provide continuous service with minimal downtime.
