Finning UK & Ireland (Finning), the UK and Ireland’s sole dealer of Cat® engines, will be exhibiting at this year’s SPE Offshore Europe Conference and Exhibition, showcasing its complete suite of Cat Connect services for the oil and gas industry.

Taking place on stand 1M48 between 3 – 6 September at the new P&J Live venue in Aberdeen, Finning will be demonstrating a full range of equipment management technologies to help customers control costs, improve performance and reduce risk – including a demonstration of the new Cat Remote Fleet Vision (Cat RFV), which has been recently launched in the region.

Cat Connect now with Cat remote fleet vision

Cat RFV provides a comprehensive view of asset health, and in conjunction with Cat’s advanced analytics, can help improve future performance. This helps operators to make informed operational decisions about equipment performance, to increase utilisation rates and schedule maintenance at a convenient and appropriate time.

Operators can choose which reports to receive automatically, selecting from a range of standard options, such as mechanical availability, runtime or alert history, or customising the reporting based on specific operational needs.

Cat RFV is part of Cat Connect; a suite of Cat equipment management technologies designed to help reduce the owning and operating costs of engines and driven equipment, which will improve uptime and productivity. With a wide range of remote and automated data collection, reporting and troubleshooting options, Cat Connect helps operators to find and eliminate unproductive idle time to help reduce fuel costs and limit total running hours for increased service intervals.

Range of aftercare solutions

Finning will be showcasing its aftercare solutions to attendees at Offshore Europe, enabling Cat technologies to be repaired and rebuilt to their original condition. Rather than having to invest in a new piece of equipment, as would be the case with most competitive models, Finning can offer a reliable and high-quality overhaul of Cat products, so they can continue to deliver the highest levels of performance.

Cat emissions solutions

For those seeking a solution that can help can reduce emissions for existing equipment, Finning is also able to offer Cat Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), which can be customised for specific applications and retrofitted to engines.

David Perry, Sales Manager at Finning, explains: “As the sole dealer in the UK and Ireland for Cat equipment, including parts and service, Finning is able to supply new equipment solutions, repower existing machines, and help maintain the full range of Cat engines and generator sets. This covers both our standard and customised solutions of trusted engines and electric power technologies for land, semi-subs, FPSOs and offshore rigs. And with more Cat engines installed in petroleum applications worldwide than any other manufacturer, there is a reason we’re a leader in power solutions for this industry.

“We are looking forward to showcasing our Cat Connect asset health management solutions to help operators in the oil and gas sector get the most out of their equipment. As well as being able to provide a new or used engine to repower a machine, we can offer our Aftercare Solutions for those that might be considering replacing an engine or generator set, and in some cases an opportunity to rebuild Cat equipment, so it’s as good as new. This essentially provides a ‘second life’ for the equipment, where it can be technically challenging and costly to re-engineer a machine with an electronic engine against a mechanical engine.

“And with oil and gas applications around the world required to meet local and international emissions regulations, and in some cases operate in hazardous areas, our technology solutions for this sector are engineered to meet, and in many cases exceed, all of these requirements. We offer optional testing of engines and generator sets to prove their performance. We look forward to welcoming attendees to this year’s Offshore Europe event to stand 1M48, to discuss the latest Cat solutions that can help meet the demands of even the most hostile environments in this sector.”
