A new compact-sized marine genset designed as a total electrical power and propulsion solution for workboats, small ferries and other vessels up to approximately 24m length.
The new Yanmar generator set is rated for 400V three-phase output, delivering 17kW at 1500 rpm, and is designed around a compact four-cylinder four stroke diesel Yanmar marine prime mover, water-cooled for quiet operation, coupled to a Stamford alternator. The design offers the legendary Yanmar reliability and low cost of ownership in a small-sized, lightweight package. The skid-mounted unit is 1545mm long, 876.5mm wide and 799mm overall height.
Eric Tigelaar, Manager Commercial Marine Department at Yanmar Europe, explains: “Listening to current customers we recognised a need for a generator that would be compact and affordable, while delivering the world-renowned reliability and quality of the Yanmar brand. We expect an attractive market to open up for fully solar-driven vessels of which the batteries will need to be charged by such a generator.“
Yanmar works proactively with ship designers, ship owners and shipbuilders as well as with other equipment manufacturers and suppliers to ensure the optimum solution to each electrical and hybrid marine propulsion project. Our strategy is to focus, to be accurate, to show initiative and to provide the right solution for each project.
