Caterpillar Marine to operate new marine center in Singapore

Caterpillar Marine to operate new marine center in Singapore
Caterpillar Marine will establish a new dedicated marine center in Singapore in the facility previously occupied by Caterpillar Remanufacturing.

The new facility, scheduled to come on stream by the fourth quarter, will feature new manufacturing capability for Caterpillar Marine’s propulsion business to build the company’s range of MTA azimuth thrusters and MTT tunnel thrusters.

The new marine center will have the capability to produce the full line of thrusters including additional capacity to produce the new MTA 9 with rated power exceeding 3.5 megawatt, as well as Caterpillar's expanded series of thrusters dedicated to the tug market.

The marine center will also enable an expansion in Cat Medium speed engine training services for customers in the region, and establish a new Caterpillar propulsion training center for customers and dealers on Caterpillar propulsion thrusters and controls.

The location already functions as Caterpillar Marine’s sales and service hub covering Asia Pacific and Oceania region.

“As part of this latest commitment to Singapore’s maritime industry, the new center will allow Caterpillar Marine Asia Pacific dealership to expand its workshop space and capabilities, and consolidate its extensive offsite spare parts inventory to improve the efficiency of its parts operations,” the company stated.

The new center will bring together in one location almost 200 people employed by Caterpillar Marine in Singapore.
