Northern Lights Commercial Marine: 20-550 kW 60 Hz / 1800 RPM

The heritage continues
For over 40 years, Northern Lights generators have been working for people who work on the water. From Bering Sea crabbers to bayou mud boats, push boats to high speed ferries; Northern Lights powers them all. The end result of this experience is the C3 Series powered by US EPA Tier III compliant, Lugger diesels. C3 sets combine high tech emission controls with the cast-iron reliability, simplicity, durability and product support you expect from a Northern Lights—all at a very affordable price

Selection without compromise
Underloaded and overloaded generators cause problems and waste money. With seven models, 20 to 250 kW, there is a Northern Lights commercial set that is right for your job. Mix and match these compatible sets for your best, single source, power solution.

Tough Lugger diesels
Built for continuous duty, many Lugger powered sets have logged over 30,000 hours without a rebuild. Check the features and you will see why. Replaceable wet cylinder liners, liquid cooled turbos, cast-iron exhaust manifolds, plate oil coolers, cupronickel heat exchangers, gear driven seawater pumps. Rugged components built from the finest materials.

Simple to operate and maintain
Hoses, gaskets and belts have been minimized. Control panels keep you in touch with your set’s performance while safety shutdowns protect it. DC relays are used instead of printed circuit boards. Most service points are on a single side to simplify maintenance.

Electronic system profiler
“ESP” is a window to your set’s real time operating condition. The engine control unit that controls the electronic fuel injection on M65C3, M99C3 and M150C13 produces a stream of engine performance and diagnostic information that can be shown on an optional monitor.

Superior generator ends
The sea is no place for a stand-by generator. All Northern Lights have low 95°/50° temperature rise ratings, Class H epoxy insulation and ±1.5% voltage regulation.

Complete options list
Each option is designed to integrate into a total power system custom built for your vessel. Consider a high power PTO that can supply up to 149 HP of hydraulic power at a touch of a button.

Total unit load testing
Complete load testing is done with all accessories installed. Testing is just one of the quality controls that supports your decision to choose the very best commercial generator set for your workboat.

High resale value
Northern Lights’ quality reputation is a big plus when you sell your vessel. Buyers will know you cared enough to install the very best equipment.

The C-3 Commercial Series
Premium commercial generator sets, at an affordable cost. Don’t risk your livelihood to anything less.
