Successful Caterpillar Generator Installation in ABFC THAIYAK

Recently the AST Oceanics technical team successfully project managed the change out of the THAIYAK’s C9 Caterpillar Genset series with new Caterpillar 7.1 series gensets. The new gensets have improved automation,  fuel economy, increased reliability, and noise and vibration reduction. This was a demanding technical task that had to be completed during a 28 day maintenance activity including meeting stringent and class society requirements.
