The Cat® C175-16 marine propulsion engine is the latest in a line of high performance engines designed to meet IMO Tier II emissions requirements. It is rated at 2001 – 2168 bkW at 1600 rpm and 2239 bkW – 2550 bkW at 1800 rpm.
The C175 engine is already being offered in non-road applications to meet EPA Tier 4 requirements. Ideal for offshore support vessels, tugs, and workboat applications, the engine features technology advances and updates to ensure maximum productivity and minimal environmental impact.
The engine uses ACERT™ Technology. ACERT was developed by Caterpillar to control the combustion process within engines to reduce pollutant levels while maintaining engine performance and efficiency. These engines feature optimized turbocharging and after cooling for reliable maximum power output. Efficient combustion reduces engine wear and maximizes fuel, driving the C175-16 to pull the maximum amount of energy from each injection event. ACERT technology exceeds U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations and incorporates over 250 patents.
The engine also features the Cat common rail fuel system enabling low emissions at all levels and requires no after treatment to comply with regulations. In addition to a 1,000-hour oil change interval, thermo-laminated heat shields save time and money during service.
The engine has a bore of 175 mm (6.9 in) and a stroke of 220 mm (8.66 in).
