Engine: Cat C175-16 3467hp

Caterpillar Marine unveiled new power ratings for the Cat C175 propulsion engine for commercial vessels at the 2014 SMM Exhibition, held September 9-12 in Hamburg, Germany. Designed specifically as a high speed power solution for commercial applications including ocean going and harbor tugs, the C175-16 propulsion engine is now available with ratings up to 3467hp at 1800 rpm. The new ratings extend Caterpillar Marine's high-speed engine power range beyond the company's already industry-leading 3516C HD engine. Cat C175 engine platforms with the new ratings are available to order now from the global Cat dealer network. Ideal for large, high speed commercial vessels, the C175 engine utilizes proven ACERT™ technology to optimize turbocharging and aftercooling. Efficient combustion reduces engine wear and maximizes fuel, driving the C175-16 to pull the maximum amount of energy from each injection event. The engine also features the Cat common rail fuel system enabling low emissions at all levels and requires no aftertreatment to comply with regulations. In addition to an 1,000-hour oil change interval, thermo-laminated heat shields save time and money during service. With a bore of 175 mm and a stroke of 220 mm, the C175-16 is highly efficient while providing increased propulsion output in a high speed engine platform. Additional features include: Turbocharged and aftercooled aspiration, MCS approved monitoring, alarm, and protection system, Cross-flow head design, and Simplified electrical system.
