Regarding this GEN SET, I wondering if you can help me to answer these questions:
Does this GEN SET meet Tier 3 requirements?
If this GEN SET does not meet Tier 3, Is it possible to make an upgrade to it in order to achieve Tier 3 requirements?
If an upgrade is possible to achieve for Tier 3, Do you have a budgetary estimate to do the Tier 3 upgrade? Can you give a time frame to do this Tier 3 upgrade?
Thank you for your help

The 3406C you have does not meet Tier 3 emissions standards.
It will be possible to retrofit the 3406C to achieve emissions levels equivalent to (or better than) the Tier 3 requirements. You will need to add an SCR (slective catalytic reduction) unit, along with a DPF (diesel particulate filter) to reduce the emissisions. Without knowing the details of your installation, it is difficult to comment about the costs and leadtimes. Your best solution will be to contact a local rep for aftertreatment. I am not sure of of the suppliers in your area, but your local Cat dealer can help you with the selection and supply of the correct aftertreatment equipment. Here is the link to locate a Cat dealer near you: http://www.cat.com/dealer-locator.
The aftertreatment should allow the engine to acheive Tier 3 emissions levels, but will not result in a Tier 3 certified product. The EPA Tier 3 is a factory certifications, which requires the engine to meet the emissions levels as it ships from the factory.
Hope this helps.
