Fischer Panda signs equipment deal in Oregon

The marine division of Oregon Iron Works, a leading manufacturer of watercraft for the government and workboat markets, selected Fischer Panda Generators as an equipment supplier for its new series of fireboats.

The first two craft will delivered to the city of Portland, Ore., according to Oregon Iron Works.

The company chose Fischer Panda’s 12kw 240v generator, a compact yet robust generator driven by the reliable freshwater-cooled Kubota D722 three-cylinder diesel engine, capable of producing 46 amps at 240 volts, the company said in a statement.

Ideal for sailboats and consumer-packed powerboats, the 12 Mini DP weighs only 410 pounds and has a noise level rating of 52 dBa at 7 meters.

It also comes with Fischer Panda’s technically advanced Digital Panel, which is NMEA 2000 compatible, and the company’s digital Voltage Control System.

“We chose Fischer Panda based on several factors, including the generators’ compact size, its light weight, compared to the other generators in this power output range, and Fischer Panda’s excellent U.S.-based engineering support team, which provided the customization of configurations and controls,” Oregon Iron Works marine division president Josh Pruzek said in a statement.
