Wärtsilä Generating Sets

A wide range of generating sets, comprising generator and diesel engine mounted on a common baseframe, are available for both service power generation and for diesel-electric propulsion.

All generating sets listed are based on medium-speed diesel engines designed for operating on heavy fuel oil.

The generating sets are resiliently mounted and the generator voltage can be selected in all cases except for the Auxpac generating sets, which are Low Voltage only.

Larger diesel generators are delivered for separate mounting of the diesel engine and generator.
