Power Plants


People depend on power plants for electricity to power their daily lives. They need it for work and play, and it’s essential for running countless critical systems that protect people and keep them alive.

At Thompson Power Systems, we are the region’s authorized Cat power systems dealer — and your home for an entire line of power solutions. Our team will help you create a customized configuration built around your facility and specifications.

Total Power Solutions You Can Depend On

You can find Cat® power plant generators serving countless power companies worldwide. These rugged systems ensure your facility can deliver steady and uninterrupted power while meeting your unique customer demand.

You have several different systems to choose from, each offering unique features, advantages and benefits.

Power Plant Diesel Generators

Cat diesel generators come in a wide range of factory-designed models that will meet virtually any requirements. These systems are energy-efficient and excellent for continuous or standby use. They are developed according to strict engineering standards and meet stringent global emissions guidelines, producing a cleaner output compliant with most international requirements.

Power Plant Gas Generators

Gas generators are versatile systems appropriate for serving base or peak electrical loads. This quality makes them an ideal option for managing spikes in demand without the risk of faulting out. Depending on local economics, a natural gas generator may also be a more cost-effective option.

Reliable System Accessories

  • Paralleling switchgear: This equipment can run multiple generators in parallel sequence.
  • Automatic transfer switches: These devices are switches that detect outages and engage standby generators.
