The complete diesel generator set is notable for its ease of installation, reliable operation, ease of maintenance and good component accessibility. The basis is formed by the rigid base frame as a foundation of the engine and alternator with an integrated oil sump, large oil volume and universal equipment for both HFO and MDO operation. The M 25 C has a wide range of application providing power for the continuous generation of electricity where a high level of reliability is important. The power range of the M 25 C engine series as a generator unit varies from 2,140 to 3,560 kVA.

Intelligent simplicity

This MaK design principles is most clearly reflected in the reduction in the number of components. About 40 % of parts have been dispended. It has resulted in a marked gain in operational reliability and a reduction in operating costs.

Reliable energy supply

The complete diesel engine is notable for its ease of installation, reliable operation, ease of maintenance and good component accessibility.

Ready for installation

In addition to many outstanding technical features, the long-stroke M 25 C engine is also easy to install and provides good maintenance access to all components.

Complete propulsion system

The supply of complete propulsion systems is a market requirement which is becoming increasingly important.
