Auxiliary engine

Depending on the size of a ship, one or more auxiliary engines may be needed. West Diesel's customized generator sets are perfect to use as a auxiliary engine. An example of this is the recent project we had at the Port of Esbjerg in Denmark on the fishing boat Maria Bork L-66 (read more here). Here we replaced both auxiliary engines with West Diesel's own generator plant built on Mitsubishi engine and Stamford generator. This results in very many reliable operating hours and is a perfect combination for many ships.

Emergency generator

Need a generator set that is completely independent and can run even if everything else fails? A generator set from West Diesel is perfectly suited for this purpose. Especially because many emergency generators need to be able to do something different, and often it is not always easy to find exactly what you need. Also you dont want to pay for extra feature you won't need. However, with a genset from West Diesel, there is great possiblity for adjustments that make the majority of things possible for you who are in need of an emergency generator system. With a generator set from West Diesel you only pay for what you need.

John Deere marine genset

West Diesel is also building marine generator sets based on John Deere. John Deere is, as many people know, started in agriculture and industry, however, John Deere is a really popular brand in the marine sector as John Deere has marinated their Diesel engines with great success. West Diesel is thus an authorized dealer and service center for John Deere marine. So there are both industrial and marine solutions within generator systems with John Deere. John Deere has some unique qualifications that make it a good idea to choose John Deere for any applications. You can always contact us to hear which generator set will best suit your project and application.

Mitsubishi marine genset

West Diesel builds marine generator sets based on Mitsubishi engines. Mitsubishi does not need much introduction in the maritime world as they are probably the most recognized and reliable brand within Marine. This is also one of the reasons why West Diesel chooses to use Mitsubishi, as only the best is good enough. Mitsubishi engines can deliver a wide range of different effects and revolutions. In addition, Mitsubishi is known for being able to drive many reliable operating hours without problems, as well as low fuel consumption, easy maintenance and reliability that makes many sailors choose Mitsubishi without thinking twice.

MAN marine genset

As something completely new from 2020, we are now building generator systems from MAN. MAN has become a major brand in the marine sector and they only leave satisfied customers. MAN has many benefits and if you choose MAN it is not something you will regret. MAN is generally known for their compactness and high power in less space. In addition, MAN delivers super quality in terms of durability and performance. The fuel consumption of a MAN is actually lower than that of the competitors and can therefore easily pay off to choose a MAN engine.

The perfect combination

We recommend combining a generator from Stamford with one of the engine brands above. This combination gives you high reliability, serviceability and high efficiency. The Stamford generator excels in marine, oil, gas assist design and other continuous or standby power applications. Note that we can also develop gene sets with other generators if desired.
