Volvo Powered Marine Generating Sets

Beta Marine

Beta Marine Limited has built its renowned reputation on over 30 years of customer centred focus, listening to their individual maritime diesel power or propulsion needs, then delivering long-lasting, robust and reliable value solutions. We specialise in supporting our customers at all points of a products voyage; Pre-purchase technical advice, CAD supported technical solutions, managing classification society specification if required, product installation support, then backing all up with a superb international after-sales service via our network of approved distributors/dealerships.

Volvo Penta (part of the Volvo Group of Sweden) is a leading producer of diesel engines for leisure boats and commercial boats. Penta has been a registered trademark for almost 100 years and Volvo Penta since 1935. Volvo became established as a major supplier of trucks and busses. Volvo Penta is the marine arm of the company who produce their marine engines in a state of the art factories to the highest standards of quality control and capable of being fully compliant with the latest emission requirements and fully certified to most of the major classification societies. Volvo is now a major player in manufacture and supply of diesel engines worldwide.

Our Volvo powered marine generating sets are offered in varying kVA that are heat exchanger cooled as standard, keel cooling is available as an alternative on some limited models radiator cooling is additionally offered. We offer a large menu of ancillary equipment and accessories that you may tailor to suit your individual bespoke needs. Once you have ordered your open framed or acoustically enclosed generating set it is individually built to order and to classification standard if it is required. The generators driven by the Volvo engines are as standard Mecc Alte but others options are available please refer to Generating Set Alternator Options.

Generating Set Overview

Marine generating set with a continuous rated “Prime” power output, 3 phase at 0.8p.f with the capability for a 10% overload in accordance with ISO standard 3046. Designed, built and tested by Beta Marine Limited each set comprising of;

  • Powered by a Volvo marine specification heat exchanger cooled auxiliary diesel engine and rated for continuous operation in accordance with ISO 3046. Fully classifiable specification suitable for survey including: duplex change over fuel filters and flexible fuel connections for inlet and return (fire retardant and ‘type’ approved). Double walled/sheathed fuel injection pipes on D5 and D7, not required on larger engines as they have unit injectors.
  • Heat exchanger cooling complete with cupro-nickel tube bundle, with fresh and sea water pumps, including lubricating oil cooler and sump drain pump.
  • Water cooled exhaust manifolds with exhaust elbow and flexible bellows section.
  • 24 Volt electric start system with battery charging alternator1 and stop solenoid valve. Marine type insulated return. (Note: 1 Battery charging alternator not available on D5, D7 and D16 radiator cooled builds).
  • Combined start, alarm and shutdown panel engine mounted and pre-wired to engine components.
    D5 and D7 Models: Keystart module with analogue gauges for lube oil pressure, coolant temperature and engine speed with hour meter and alarm indication and combined protection circuits.
  • D9, D13 and D16 Models: Marine approved modular engine controller to monitor engine parameters with start and stop pushbuttons. A screen enables direct readings of oil pressure and jacket water temperature and provides engine status information. The module provides auto shutdown on fault and gives possibility for signal outputs to ship system.
  • Speed governor to control engine speed to the requirements of ISO 3046 for diesel generating set.
  • Volvo standard combustion air filters.
  • Mecc Alte alternator marine rated to ISO standard, 4 pole, brushless, self ventilated with IP 22 protection, single bearing construction. The generator is self regulating and self excited and is complete with terminal box and automatic voltage regulator, fully suitable for use in engine room environments of 45°C. Frame sizes may alter to meet required voltage/frequency. Efficiencies may vary.
  • The engine and alternator are close coupled together and mounted on a combined welded steel base plate.
  • Marine failsafe anti-vibration mountings are installed as standard to isolate the generating set base plate from the ships seating.
  • Paint – These generating sets are finished in Volvo green as standard but can be finished in colour of choice.
  • Each generating set is “full load” tested in accordance with our quality document QA001. On turbocharged engines load acceptance is limited in accordance with ISO 3046.

Bespoke Acoustic Enclosures

Available for Heat Exchanger, Keel or Radiator Cooled Generating Sets.

Bespoke enclosures are manufactured from ‘Zintec’ steel and finished in off white ‘powder coated’ paint to complement the generating set colour. The panel frame is bolted together for rigidity and strength. It is lined with high quality 38mm flame retardant acoustic foam material (including a 4mm polymeric barrier), held in place with high temperature silicon adhesive. Complete with full tray base frame, drain plug and lifting lugs.

Quick release “service” panels facilitate easy, simple and unobstructed access to the engine, AC alternator and ancillaries. Acoustic attenuating ducts provide air flow in and out of enclosure forced by an electric ventilation fan which is powered direct from the AC alternator terminals. Blank gland plates are provided for electrical connections.

Beta Marine specialise in bespoke customer specification, for support please contact one of our specialist generating set team on the Beta Marine Help Desk.

Cooling Options

Heat Exchanger – Complete with integral heat exchanger, fresh & sea water pumps and dry exhaust outlet.

Keel Cooling – Complete with fresh water pump ready for use with the vessels keel cooler and dry exhaust outlet.

Radiator Cooling – Self-contained and mounted on the generating set with engine driven fan* and dry exhaust outlet.

Classification

If a vessel is “classified” and the class notation calls for the marine generating set to be “in class” then unless there is an exception allowed for by the relevant class rules, the complete generating set will be subject to the relevant classification society rules.

Once built to the relevant classification society rules, the complete engine, alternator and all its ancillaries will need to be fully surveyed and witness tested at the factory by the classification society surveyor/s. Upon completion, full class certificates will be issued specific to each generating set.

The requirements vary between classification societies and the relevant society surveyor should be consulted prior to ordering to ensure the generating set customer/vessel specification is acceptable for the class.

The benefit of this process is the generating set has been proven and is compliant before being shipped and received on board.

Classification Society compliance and certification is a chargeable extra and will allowed for in your bespoke generating set quotation.

Note: Please note that not all engines are available with ‘type’ approval and some engine manufacturers do not offer or allow their engines to be surveyed and witness tested by class society surveyors in their factory.

Certification Options

IMO & EIAPP Certification

For IMO and EIAPP compliance please refer to 50Hz or 60Hz specification data tabs.

Output Options

The following illustration below depicts two main generating sets and one stand by generating set which can be arranged in multiple configurations to suit the vessels application requirements.

Simplified schematic is for illustrational purposes only and not necessarily representative and will vary by generating set and customer/vessels requirements.

Auto Stand By

In this application each generating set is sized to carry the full electrical load of the vessel. Each generating is arranged for automatic stand by to each other with their outputs controlled through a change over contactor. Failure of the selected running generator set would automatically initiate the starting of the second generating set which when running, would take over the electrical load.

The electrical load black out would be milliseconds should the change over be controlled by a pre-alarm on the running generating set or initiated by the operator.

In this application the use of a stand by emergency / essential services set may be obviated. However, if the machinery has to built to classification, the relevant classification society rules will dictate the final requirement that will need to be met.

In this application the arrangement is the same as Auto Stand By (above) but the change over contactor is replaced by independent contactors or motorised circuit breakers. In the event of sudden failure of the running generator set the operation procedure would also be the same as Auto Stand By. However, under controlled shutdown of the running generator the second generating set could be run up either manually or automatically and paralleled with the with the outgoing generating set enabling a smooth take over of the load before the outgoing set is shut down.

Full Parallel Operation

In this application both generating sets power the load either continuously or dependent upon demand, the arrangement can be manually or automatically operated. It is common for the vessels switchboard to incorporate a load shedding arrangement so that in the event of a failure of one of the main generating sets that all essential services loads would be maintained by the other generating set.

In this arrangement the installation of an emergency / essential services generating is set is recommended.

Bespoke Arrangements

The above options can be modified and adjusted for bespoke vessel operational needs. There may be more or less generating sets (than depicted above) to suit these needs with bespoke control, appropriate for the final arrangement.

Many requirements are dictated by any relevant classification society class rules which are set to ensure the safety of both the crew and the vessel. These rules will embody SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea) as issued by the IMO (International Maritime Organisation).
