M30CW3 Northern Lights Marine Generator

Northern Lights Commercial Marine Generators

30 kW @ 60 Hz / 1800 rpm

Commercial operators have a specific and challenging set of expectations for their power systems. Generators should be able to run at full load for extended periods. If they can’t; that equates to time lost and livelihoods threatened.

No one understands this better than Northern Lights. Our product line began in the unforgiving Alaskan fishing grounds. We have made improvements over the years, but have never forgotten the commitment to making the most reliable, durable and simple to use machines on the market.

Case in point: the M30CW. Cranking out 30 kW at 60 Hz, the M30CW is a true low-maintenance workhorse. Single side service, minimal hoses and belts, and an industry-best warranty all add up to an excellent “plug and play” power solution for the commercial operator whose bottom line depends on reliable performance.

The M30CW is engineered to withstand the rigors of commercial seagoing. Built for long life at full load, the M30CW is driven by a powerful Lugger engine and features Northern Lights’ exclusive W-Series generator end. The auxiliary stator winding provides real 300% short circuit protection and cleaner AC output than comparable generator models.

Easily customizable, the M30CW even has the ability to deliver full engine power to a front PTO, enabling the user to run winches, thrusters or deck gear at the touch of a button.

No detail has been overlooked in engineering a superior marine product. The 3.3 liter displacement provides plentiful power without the need for a turbocharger. The M30CW’s freshwater cooled exhaust manifold is sturdy cast iron with two pass cooling for even temperature control with no dry runners.

For tugs, fishing boats or passenger vessels, the M30CW is a true turn-key workhorse. You can learn more about
