At next week’s Miami International Boat Show, Cummins Inc., will show its expanded line of EPA Tier 3 certified marine generators.
A new Onan Marine QD series generator will have a power range of 40 kWe to 65 kWe. The latest Tier 3 QD generators have reduced emissions and quieter operation, said Cummins.
The new generator can be paralleled to provide electrical power for vessels with a need up to 130 kWe. It will be available in a variety of configurations including two cooling system options, heat exchange or keel-cooled, with or without the Onan sound shield and with single- or three-phase power options.
The new Onan units will be sold under six different model names, MDDCS, MDDCT, MDDCU, MDDCW and MDDCY, depending on the output requirement.
Cummins also recently announced the unification of its brand strategy across its Power Systems business segment. It provides high-speed engines from 760 to 4,400 hp and power generation equipment from 2 to 3,500 kW, including standby and prime power gensets, alternators, switchgear and other components.
Previously, the portfolio had multiple names and moving forward, all the equipment will be under the Cummins brand. The Cummins Power Generation and Cummins Onan brands have been retired and the Onan name is going to be repositioned as a generator product line.
