Next Generation Power Engineering Diesel Generators

Next Generation Power Engineering Inc., a Florida based company, builds ultra-compact 3.5 KW and 5.5 KW gensets using Kubota fresh-water cooled diesel engines. The 3.5 KW unit measures 28" long, 15.5" wide, and 15" tall, and weighs 160 pounds. It's small enough to fit most anywhere on your boat, and is very quiet in operation. It has sufficient output to power a 16,000 btu air conditioner, refrigerator, and battery charger.

Next Generation 5.5KW GensetThe 5.5 KW unit, shown to the right, is 23" long, 17" wide, and 20" high, and weighs 230 pounds. It can power two air conditioners, totaling 20,000 btus, and some small appliances.

Both units are very stingy with fuel, as the average consumption rate is just ONE FIFTH gallon per hour!

An optional fiberglass enclosure is available to further quiet the generator. If the genset is placed in the engine compartment this option is usually not needed, as our generators are designed to operate quietly without it.

Ignition protection is also available. This allows the generator to operate aboard a gasoline powered boat, as it cannot normally ignite gasoline fumes. One very large advantage of a diesel-powered generator is that carbon monoxide fumes are nearly eliminated, in contrast to a gasoline-powered generator. This makes sleeping aboard much safer for the crew.
