New | VM 43 C Marine Generator Set

The VM 43 C has been specially designed to meet the high requirements of the marine engine markets for cruise ships and ferries but also for other specialized ship types. To ensure that passengers enjoy a luxurious life-style on board, these ships require generator sets that are powerful on the one hand, but imperceptible on the other hand. The top priority is thus a generator set with low noise, vibration and emission levels. The source of this power is the calm strength of the VM 43 C working quietly in the background. Benefit from our expertise and experience: the VM 43 C has already fully demonstrated its excellence powering, for example, on the “Pont-Aven” deployed by Brittany Ferries.
