Wärtsilä Introduces Auxpac Generating Sets
Wärtsilä Corporation has introduced a new range of its Auxpac medium- and high-speed standard marine generating sets. The generating sets are supplied as pre-commissioned standard packages designed to ensure availability of electrical power in sufficient quantity as and when needed. The Auxpac generating sets cover a total output range of 60 to 2850 kWe for either 50 or 60 Hz operation. The high-speed range covers an output range from 60 to 1630 kWe, while the medium-speed range covers an output range from 520 to 2850 kWe. The medium-speed generating set range running on heavy fuel is based on Wärtsilä 20 and 26 engines. The high-speed range running on MGO is based on the cooperation with Volvo Penta through which Wärtsilä will sell and service large Volvo Penta engines for commercial shipping applications.
