PEORIA, Ill. — Caterpillar recently introduced a new track-type off-road construction tractor powered by a Cat C15 engine with ACERT Technology.
First introduced in March 2003 as a long-term emissions solution for North American on-highway engines, ACERT Technology also will be used in the Caterpillar line of construction and mining equipment. ACERT Technology provides a technology path for meeting Tier 4 standards, which will begin to take effect in 2011.
“With more than 140,000 on-road engines featuring ACERT Technology already in service, this proven technology puts Caterpillar in the driver’s seat when it comes to addressing emissions regulations for both on-highway and off-highway applications,” said Jim Owens, Caterpillar chairman and CEO. “This technology is as good for customers as it is for the environment.”
More than 140 pre-production off-road machines in the field powered by engines with ACERT Technology are receiving positive customer feedback, according to Gary Stroup, vice president, Caterpillar Large Power Systems Division.
ACERT Technology is a differentiated, breakthrough systems approach that reduces emissions at the point of combustion. It capitalizes on Caterpillar’s proven leadership in engine electronics, fuel injection systems, combustion and aftertreatment technologies. All Caterpillar on-highway truck and bus engines now in production feature ACERT Technology.
