14 February 2012 – Caterpillar and Energyst Cat Rental Power have signed a five-year agreement to globally develop temporary power solutions. By working with Caterpillar, Energyst will further strengthen its position in the international power projects (IPP) market.

Gary Smith, chief executive officer of Energyst says, “By putting our team together with Caterpillar, we are positioned to leverage the key Cat distribution network.”

“The experience we gain with Energyst will allow Caterpillar to continue our growth in the international power projects business,” Bill Rohner, Caterpillar vice president with responsibility for electric power, says.

Energyst successfully deployed 60 MW for a large energy company in Argentina, earlier this year, and an additional 50 MW is scheduled for placement over the next six weeks. It offers an extensive fleet comprised of Cat power solutions from 20 kVA up to multi-megawatt installations.
