Peterson Power Systems, Inc. is your authorized source for Cat distributed generation and standby power equipment. Distributed generation is power generated on-site.
Marine propulsion is the mechanism or system that is used to generate thrust to move a ship across water. Most modern ships are propelled by mechanical systems consisting of an electric motor or engine turning a propeller, or less frequently, in pump-jets, an impeller.
Peterson Power System offers Caterpillar's complete line of marine propulsion engines and marine generator sets that are suited for powering pleasure craft and commercial vessels. All our products offer maximum reliability with minimum operating costs for any application and vessel size.
Cogeneration is a cost-efficient means of generating both electricity and thermal energy from the same fuel source.
Peterson Power Systems supplies and fully supports complete power solution packages to meet diverse emergency electric power needs when and where they matter most.
Peterson Power Systems provides electric power generators for use in many applications, including prime power for remotely located commercial businesses where there is no access to electric power.
In 2009, the single largest piece of gear that Peterson Power Systems ever sold was delivered: a fully self contained electrical switchgear building measuring over fifty feet long, sixteen feet wide, and sixteen feet tall. The unit weighed nearly one hundred thousand pounds, and was the primary piece of equipment in a multimillion dollar electrical upgrade project for the City of San Francisco’s Water Department.
Assistant Chief Engineer, Nicholas Stoliar, explains how El Camino Hospital reacted to a major equipment failure. With help from Peterson Power, he had a 300 ton chiller delivered in nine hours.
