Northern Lights Unveils Generator Design

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Northern Lights, a manufacturer of marine diesel generator sets, introduced the M944T.

Producing 38kW at 60Hz, or 32kW at 50Hz, the M944T is based on a heavy-duty industrial engine block and is custom marinized for high performance.

This new model is the first Northern Lights generator to utilize a new frame design in which the sound enclosure shares a base frame with the generator set, creating a compact power and sound attenuation package that reduces noise and vibration while maximizing engine room space. The design also allows for the easy installation of an additional set of vibration mounts for a smoother, quieter package with only minimal increase in height. Fuel and oil drains are located outside of the sound enclosure for easy connection and forward and rear exhaust exit options are also important design features. While the M944T is the first Northern Lights model to showcase this design, the entire range of 5-38kW Northern Lights generator sets will receive this design treatment in the near future.

The M944T will be available for delivery in spring 2009.
