Caterpillar Marine is establishing a new marine centre in Singapore in the facility previously occupied by Caterpillar Remanufacturing.
The new centre will host nearly 200 people.
Facilities 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 centre will have the capability to produce the company’s full line of thrusters including additional capacity to produce the new MTA 9 with rated power exceeding 3.5MW, as well as Caterpillar's expanded series of thrusters dedicated to the tug market.
The centre will also house members of Caterpillar Marine’s propulsion systems solutions team, who work on the development of advanced and innovative marine propulsion system concept designs.
The marine centre is expected be fully operational by the fourth quarter of 2016.
