For the first time, a new EPA rule requires that some existing diesel generators have emission control equipment installed. Generally, generators >200kW manufactured prior to June 12, 2006, and used for non-emergency applications (i.e. demand response, peak shaving, storm avoidance, etc.) will require new emission control equipment and procedures.
Ziegler's goal is to inform, educate, and assist our customers in addressing this new EPA rule as it applies to Caterpillar and non-Caterpillar brand generators.

NESHAP On-Site Evaluation
Ziegler Power Systems is offering generator owners a NESHAP on-site evaluation as a way to provide technical data required to better understand their specific generator and site. The resulting report will provide important information and recommendations for complying with the NESHAP rules. Site evaluations are offered for sites with Caterpillar, as well as other generator brands. For complete details, or to sign up for an on-site evaluation, click here.
