Onan Introduces Sea Aux® Gensets

Cummins Engine Company and Onan Corporation, Minneapolis, Minn., recently announced the completion of a joint venture development program. The result is a line of midsize auxiliary generator sets for the commercial marine industry. Rated for prime power duty in worldwide shipboard applications requiring 1,000 or more hours of operation per year, the new Sea Aux™ gensets provide electric power for tug and pushboats, commercial fishing vessels, passenger ferries, cruise boats, megayachts and others. Twelve models are available in the Sea Aux line and include 35 to 95 kw (60 Hz at 1,800 rpm) or 30 to 75 kw (50 Hz at 1,500 rpm) operation in various voltage configurations. The Onan® 12 lead reconnectable alternator is rated for 80 degree rise at 40 degree ambient with Class H insulation. The main alternator and exciter insulation systems are impregnated for operation in severe marine environments where salt air, sea spray, chemical corrosion and engine room conditions are installation factors.

"The Cummins and Onan joint venture development program enables the buyer to easily specify not only a generator set but also the production engines as a complete package," said Dennis Wagner, product manager for the Sea Aux development program.

Furthermore, the Cummins/Onan worldwide distribution network offers application expertise and factory trained service technicians with direct access to replacement parts. For free literature detailing the new Sea Aux gensets from Onan,
