Caterpillar - Seguin, TX

Project Features:
Large Engines, End of Line Production Test

engine manufacturing test facility

ACS designed and constructed new diesel engine production test cells, for up to 1,200 hp. The test cell improves production thru-put by shortening engine test cycle time. The total engine test time is 12 minutes, floor to floor (in and out of test cell).

Key Performance Features:

  • Fully Automated Test Cells – Operator not required to enter the test cell under normal operation
  • All test cells are identical, allowing all engines to be tested in all cells
  • Automated in-floor TracVeyor System – Deliver test pallets/engines to and from the test cells and engine rig area
  • Assembly line style rig and de-rig area. Design team coordination to reduce project schedule time, and completed under budget

ACS Services:

ACS held a single-source contract for design and construction management; equipment specification, procurement and installation; integration of equipment and facility systems; and commissioning.
