Leading marine power generation and climate control products manufacturer Northern Lights, Inc. (NLI) is pleased to announce we have recently completed a 235kW Commercial Series generator set for the Fire Department of New York. The unit – M235C13.11NYFD – was built with a number of specifications unique to the requirements of metropolitan fire-fighting, including a nonstandard base pan, shutdown switches and USCG fuel lines plumbed to the base frame. The unit was completed to ABS and USCG standards and included a special “fire engine” red paint scheme. This unit will be used as an emergency back-up set to four Northern Lights generator sets currently in use on FDNY boats.

Built by Eastern Shipbuilding Group and designed by Robert Allan Ltd., the 140- foot long fireboats are able to pump up 50,000 gallons of water per minute, the greatest pumping capacity of any boat in the world at the time of their delivery.
