Fischer Panda will demonstrate the quiet operation of its leading range of marine generators by displaying a selection of working models on its outside stand at this year’s Southampton Boat Show.
Allowing customers to experience the renowned Fischer Panda low sound levels for themselves, the marine generator specialist will install its new variable speed Panda 5000i Neo unit to start up and run as requested during the show.
Fischer Panda’s line of diesel gensets, which are suitable for vessels ranging from RIBs to superyachts, are the quietest marine generators available. The units run at a noise level of between just 52db(A) and 55db(A) at a distance of 7m, depending on the capacity and type of the model.
Units up to 25 kW feature a GRP sound insulation capsule with a 3-layer, 25mm thick ‘3D’ sound insulation material as standard, with a thicker 5-layer version also available. Generators from 25 kW and above are supplied with a stainless steel sound-insulation Metal Professional Line (MPL) capsule. The MPL capsules are offered at an extra cost for generators from 6 kW to 25 kW.
The new Neo generators use Fischer Panda’s in-house designed water-cooled FPE320 single cylinder diesel engine which features integrated oil filter and synchronous alternator for even lower running noise levels and reduced vibration.
Chris Fower, Marine Sales and Marketing Manager for Fischer Panda, said: “We are really pleased to be able to offer our customers the unique opportunity to listen to one of our latest generators up close and running at this year’s Southampton Boat Show. We will start up and demonstrate the Panda 5000i Neo to prove to boat owners that they can run a generator for a reliable, clean power supply without the operation negatively affecting life on-board. During 40 years of manufacturing experience, we have listened to our customers who say they want a generator with low operating sound levels and vibration, especially for night time, so it is a key factor in the design of our units.”
The fixed speed 3.4 kW Panda 4000s Neo and the 4.0 kW Panda 5000i Neo, part of Fischer Panda’s variable speed iSeries ‘Perfect Power’ range, are the latest additions to Fischer Panda’s range and will be available for the first time together at this year’s Southampton Boat Show on Stand E020.
