Posted on November 22, 2013

Caterpillar Marine's 3406C propulsion engine has entered production and is available for global customers to order.

Targeting commercial marine vessels, the mechanically governed 3406C is available in ratings of 272 bkW at 1800 r/min, and 298 bkW at 1800 r/min. Cat said the engine is ideal for small offshore, inland waterways and commercial fishing applications.

The mechanical engine features many shared components from the original engine design, Cat said. With the re-launch of the platform, the engine will be offered with either keel cooled or heat exchanger cooling systems.
