Northern Lights generators highlighted
Energy Solutions will be emphasising the performance and longevity of Northern Lights generators at this year’s Seawork.
The company first supplied 673L (6kW @ 1800rpm) generators, DC link boxes, AC distribution panels and power electric units to the 12 steel cutters built for the 2000/2001 BT Global Challenge race.
The yachts raced in both the 2000/1 and the 2004/5 races with four of them later bought by the Tall Ships Youth Trust.
Since then each yacht has completed around ten transatlantic crossings and delivered hundreds of voyages in the Solent and beyond.
Over the years the Northern Lights generators have had 6000 hours of use, powered each of the four yachts through more than 200,000 miles of worldwide racing, transatlantic and local journeys and are still going strong.
“The four generators are excellent examples of what we expect from a Northern Lights set - robust, reliable power,” said Energy Solutions’ Hugh Cunningham. “For vessels like these that perform such an important function these generators have really delivered the best performance possible.”
