Cummins expands range of ignition-protected marine generators

Miami, Florida

Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) will be unveiling a new range of ignition-protected marine gensets at the 2020 Miami Boat and Yacht shows. These three new models — the 9kW, 11.5kW and 13.5kW — expand upon the existing ignition-protected marine genset offerings of 4kW and 7.5kW. Cummins Onan models are designed for use in both diesel- and gasoline-powered boats, providing a safe and reliable way to increase power supply for amenities on vessels.

Cummins Marine Generator Set“Today’s boaters expect to be safer and more comfortable than ever before when they are on the water,” said Jennifer McQuilken, marine marketing communications leader for Cummins. “As more technology is added to a vessel, there is an immediate need for safe, dependable marine power — this is where Cummins Onan marine generators are up to the task.” 

Cummins offers a complete range of marine generators, with Onan models from 4kW to 65kW and auxiliary power supply for superyachts and commercial vessels up to 3132kW. The ignition-protected models supply safer auxiliary power to a vessel with gasoline propulsion engines while meeting U.S. Coast Guard 33 CFR 183 requirements. The entire Cummins Onan generator line uses sound shields and an optimized mounting system to lower sound and vibration, resulting in a more comfortable boating experience for those aboard. 

The 9kW model will be available to preview at the Miami Boat Show (booth F518) and the 13.5kW will be on display at the Miami Yacht Show (booth 222), both taking place February 13–17. The new generators will be in full production by fall 2020. Stop by our booth or visit our website to learn more about Cummins’ expanding range of Onan marine generators.
