March 4, 2021 Product of the Month March 2020 Corporate Product of the month March 2021 high performance – low noise level VETUS is proud to present our complete range of marine diesel generator sets. Reliable, easy to maintain and exceptionally quiet, the VETUS GX range includes six different models from 5 kVA up to 24 kVA. All generator sets are available with or without a compact sound-proof box, except the 5 kVA, which is supplied as standard with a sound-proof box. The GX generator set range The GX generator sets operate at fixed engine speeds. Low speed (1500 rpm) generator sets are an ideal solution for the commercial sector, for applications featuring prolonged usage and on live-aboard vessels, due to their reduced wear rates and lower noise levels. Meanwhile, high speed (3000 rpm) generator sets are more suited to leisure applications and for installation in confined spaces, due to their compact dimensions and lower weight. All base engines are carefully selected for power output and fuel economy, depending on the speed and output of the generator. Durability, reliability and performance Marinized in-house to exceed the latest standards, the VETUS marine diesel engines feature specific benefits that are unique to the market. One of the most notable new features of the VETUS M-Line engines is the cast aluminum top cover, fitted to sets from 6 kVA up to 14 kVA to provide two advantages – reduction of heat and sound. High ambient temperatures in the sound enclosure can negatively impact engine performance. The innovative and efficient water-cooled aluminum engine cover was developed by VETUS to reduce these detrimental effects. Located directly above the cylinder head, this huge cooling element absorbs radiant heat coming from the engine and results in a significant temperature reduction of up to 20% and improved generator performance.
