Wärtsilä generating sets - Tailored to optimize performance

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.

Wärtsilä genset 20

All generating sets are designed for operating on standard marine fuel oils. The generating sets are resiliently mounted and the generator voltage can be selected. Larger diesel generators are delivered for separate mounting of the diesel engine and generator.
