SCHIEDAM _ VETUS’ GX generator sets are very quiet. Used on the VETUS M-Line engines, they operate at fixed engine speeds. Low speed (1500 rpm) generator sets are recommended for commercial applications, prolonged usage and live-aboard vessels, due to reduced wear rates and lower noise levels.
High speed (3000 rpm) generator sets are more suited to leisure applications and make installation possible even in confined spaces, due to their compact dimensions and lower weight.
All VETUS marine diesel engines are ‘marinized’ in-house to meet and exceed the latest standards. They feature benefits unique to the market. A notable new feature of the VETUS M-line engines fitted to sets from 6.5 kVA and up is the cast aluminum top cover. It cuts heat and noise.
Also, VETUS found an efficient solution by fitting a water-cooled aluminum engine cover, directly above the cylinder head. This huge cooling element absorbs radiant engine heat, resulting in a temperature reduction of up to 20% and better performance of the generator.
