Low voltage generators for marine applications


ABB supplies an extensive range of electrical products for demanding marine applications. Proven and reliable product solutions combined with true global support ensure world-class service for ship owners, operators, shipyards, OEMs, panel builders and integrators.

Standard series


ABB low voltage (LV) standard marine generators
are specifically designed for marine diesel gen-sets
in main, auxiliary or emergency power generation.
ABB standard 4-pole generators have proven
themselves in demanding marine applications.
They enable short delivery times and high reliability.


  • Short delivery times

  • Robust design for harsh marine environment

  • Compatible to all marine classifications

Modular series


ABB low voltage (LV) modular marine generators are
tailor-made for diesel gen-sets or operation as shaft
generators on board ships or offshore platforms. ABB
has the experience to deliver tailor-made generators
for demanding marine applications on time and in budget.


  • Flexible design to meet project specific requirements

  • Reliable excitation system to ensure power supply in all conditions

  • Ample experience with different engines and vessel types
