Drilling – generator sets for onshore or offshore use.

Extreme temperatures, 100% humidity: users facing extreme conditions on land- or sea-based drilling platforms worldwide count on Caterpillar power units. Because conditions can be quite different, Zeppelin Power Systems configures a generator set for you that is exactly customised to your requirements.

Our product range covers an output range between 86 and 17,460 ekW, at either 50 or 60 Hz. Their reliability, durability and ease of service makes our 3500 Series generator sets extremely popular. In particular the 3512B generator set with 'Dynamic Gas Blending' allows the use of both diesel and extracted gas as fuel, thus saving the operators substantial fuel costs. We also offer generator sets based on gas engines in the 86 to 9,760 ekW output range as package solutions.

Reliably providing power to platforms.

Offshore – that means rough seas, wetlands or other difficult terrain. In the offshore sector in particular, an engine must be able to cope with inclined positions – we offer solutions for these requirements, based on 172 to 14,400 kW engines.

Best-in-class generator sets.

A special highlight: our C280-16 offshore generator set is recognised as the best in its class in terms of its mass to power ratio. With 5,500 ekW at 900 rpm, IMO II- and EPA-compliant, ABS- and DNV-certified, and tilt tested, it offers maximum reliability for generating power on semi-submersible rigs or drill ships.
