Northern Lights generators are so quiet, our owners say they can hardly hear them running. We’ve put a lot of effort into producing reliable power in the harshest conditions with very little excess vibrations or engine noise. Ideal for the recreational and commercial marine industry, our marine diesel engines are the industry leader for ruggedly reliable marine diesel power systems.

“Among our primary concerns throughout the engineering and design process is the comfort of the end-user”, said Colin Puckett, Northern Lights Manager of Sales and Marketing. “Chief among the design considerations is the sound signature of our generator sets”.

Northern Lights generator sets are designed to run at low RPM – a key factor in noise reduction.

Other contributors to Northern Lights’ quiet design are plateform mounts, which dramatically reduce noise resulting from the transmission of vibration, and single piece, cast iron expansion tank/exhaust manifolds which keep engine noise at a minimum.

“By using the best possible components, keeping revolutions low and keeping customer comfort at the forefront, we are able to build generator sets that are measurably quieter than comparable models”.

Sound signatures on Northern Lights can be further reduced with the use of one of our industry-leading sound enclosures. Featuring noise-dampening foam and trigger latches for easy access, Northern Lights sound enclosures are one of many options that further customize Northern Lights generator sets.
