Generator #1

This is the workhorse of our plant.  For simplicity, we call this unit the generator, however it is a Caterpillar 3516, 16-cylinder engine, coupled directly to a generator, which makes the electricity.  This particular generator typically burns natural gas or diesel fuel and is used for standby power at hospitals, large boats, and locomotive trains.  However, it is equally suited for our application and has been modified  to run on our landfill gas instead of natural gas.
