Caterpillar Inc. recently launched the first blog within the company’s new Power Generation Online Community. This community is an interactive forum where consulting specifying engineers, operators and other power generation professionals can exchange ideas and best practices. Past experience purchasing or working with Cat power generation equipment is not required to participate and there are no registration fees.
“The primary goal of the online community is to help people in our industry connect with each other around the clock and around the world,” said Dave Lucas, manager of marketing communications, Caterpillar Electric Power Division. “By expanding the community to feature blogs written by Caterpillar subject matter experts, we hope to provide an avenue for the exploration of new technology and trends. We want to launch a platform to discuss not only best practices, but also address real challenges in the field by encouraging peer-generated solutions.”
Launched June 8, the first blog discusses landfill-gas-to-energy, where Richard Crump of Caterpillar outlines the economic benefits and offers advice on how to get started.
The online community can be accessed at www.catelectricpowerinfo.com/connect. To date, users from 184 countries have generated more than 800,000 page views.
