M1306 Series: 355-400/ 300-400 kW

The state-of-the art in marine equipment

The growing demands of the marine marketplace demand a big, robust power producer. As the world’s yachts grow more sophisticated, their power generation system must keep pace.

Northern Lights generator sets are based on world-class components – including industrial strength base engines and generator ends. Our exclusive marinization process ensures reliable, clean power no matter what your vessel requires.

Low profile for maximum engine room flexibility

Northern Lights’ revolutionary base frame design creates the most compact, best looking power generation set on the market. Our optional sound enclosures and compound mounts save even more space and virtually eliminate vibration noise. Northern Lights provides maximize power efficiency while using minimal engine room space.

Electronic control system

For the ultimate in system management and monitoring, the M1306 series generator sets are equipped with an Electronic Control Unit (ECU). The ECU controls the electronic engine functions and provides a SAE J1939 data stream of engine information that can be displayed on an optional system monitor panel.

Superior PMG generator ends

Northern Lights generator ends achieve ±0.5% voltage regulation. All have low temperature rise ratings to meet or exceed marine requirements. All M1306’s have Permanent Magnet Generators for 300% short circuit capability required for classed vessels.

Complete unit testing

Northern Lights generator sets are thoroughly factory tested and go through a complete quality control program to ensure your satisfaction with the best built marine generator on the market today.

 

Component Specific Features
