VETUS introduces a new Generator series
VETUS is proud to present their completely new range of marine diesel generator sets.
These new GX generator sets are both reliable and easy to maintain. They are also exceptionally quiet due to the use of the innovative VETUS M-Line engines. These GX generator sets operate at fixed engine speeds. Low speed (1500 rpm) generator sets are recommended for commercial applications, prolonged usage and live-aboard vessels, due to reduced wear rates and lower noise levels. High speed (3000 rpm) generator sets are more suited to leisure applications and make installation possible even in confined spaces, due to their compact dimensions and lower weight. All VETUS marine diesel engines are marinised in-house to meet and exceed the latest standards. They feature specific benefits that are unique to the market. One of the most notable new features of the VETUS M-line engines fitted to sets from 6.5 kVA upwards is the cast aluminium top cover. This cover provides two advantages: reduction of heat and sound. High ambient temperatures in the sound enclosure can have negative effects on engine performance. VETUS has developed an elegant yet efficient solution by fitting a water-cooled aluminium engine cover. Located directly above the cylinder head, this huge cooling element absorbs radiant heat coming from the engine. The innovative concept results in a significant temperature reduction of up to 20% and better performance of the generator.
The generators used in the GX generator range are specially designed for marine applications. The high quality standard of design, insulation, and finish guarantee a long and reliable life time in the harsh marine environment. These generators have a very clean sine wave ensuring minimal interference with sensitive electrical equipment on board, such as air conditioning and computers.

The RIMDRIVE, the silent thruster!
Do you want a thruster that you cannot hear?
The latest innovation from VETUS makes this possible!
There are two main reasons why the Rimdrive is silent. Firstly, the propeller forms the rotating part of the electric permanent magnet motor and therefore noisy gears are not used in this design.
Secondly, a ring mounted around the propeller, prevents the propeller tips from cutting through the water. In other words, it prevents cavitation and noise! The proportional speed control also helps to prevent cavitation.
In contrast with conventional thrusters, the electric motor does not take up much valuable space inside the boat. The propeller forms the rotating part of the electric motor (rotor) and the fixed winding (stator) is mounted in the tunnel. This results in a very compact and self-contained thruster.
The motor control circuitry is mounted on top of the thruster with the significant advantage of being cooled by water in the tunnel. Maintaining a constant temperature in this circuitry is vital for the proper operation of the motor.
The Rimdrive features proportional control as standard. This means that the correct amount of thrust is always available to the helmsman, in order to cope with different manoeuvres and wind conditions. Furthermore, the Rimdrive offers virtually unlimited runtime, with the only limitation being the capacity of the battery bank.
• No carbon brushes
• Silent operation due to a virtually cavitation free propeller and no use of gears
• Proportional control as standard
• Virtually unlimited runtime
• Easy to install
• Maintenance free
• Lock the thruster at any speed and hold the boat alongside the dock
• Can be used as a stern thruster
• Suitable for aluminum, steel and GRP boats
The RIMDRIVE is available with thrust outputs of 125 or 160 kgf and requires a supply voltage of 48 Volts DC. This 48VDC can either be delivered by a 110/230VAC to 48VDC charger or by converting the normal 12 or 24V battery supply voltage by a DC to DC converter solution.
Twin coil calorifiers - WHT series
Warmth on request
With the WHT calorifier series, VETUS adds a new meaning to ‘Double Dutch’: this twin coiled calorifier range will double your level on comfort on board when it comes to warm water. Another feature next to the double coil is the electric element. The WHT series uses this electric heating element to heat the water when the engine is not running, as alternative to the spiral tube which uses the surplus warmth of the running engine. Warm water at your disposal - anytime, anywhere.
Double coiled WHT calorifiers – your personal hot spring on board
The WHT twin coil calorifier series is unique in its (price) class with its additional electric element as standard: an option normally only found on far more expensive calorifiers. The calorifier is supplied with a complete connection kit: hose pillars, T-shaped connector, check valve and pressure relief valve. Available in four sizes.
