SIGENTICS M generators boost your power yield


With SIGENTICS M (Modular), you can achieve the maximum energy yield even faster and with a higher degree of sustainability: Simplified planning, easy and fast configuration with high flexibility in electrical parameters, modular frame, compact design and a large variety of cooling options. Outstanding efficiencies of up to 98.5 % and a highest degree of reliability ensure maximum yield, even under extreme conditions. For more than 40 years, SIGENTICS M generators sustainably operate with very little maintenance, minimized vibration levels and extremely quietly. The SIGENTICS M is the generation of high performance synchronous alternators from Siemens. It is based on the proven design of Siemens generators, powering diverse application all around the world.

Benefits at a glance

SIGENTICS M is offering high flexibility in electrical parameters helping our customers to come up with innovative solutions. This comes not at the cost of standardization. The new modular frame, coming with a variety of cooling options, helps to keep a highly standardized and compact design which simplifies the customers engineering

With an efficiency of up to 98.5 %, SIGENTICS M has an extremely high efficiency for industrial generators in their power class. This results in a maximum energy yield and in turn outstanding ecological sustainability.

The fact that SIGENTICS M units reliably generate power over decades reflects that many attributes of this series interact harmoniously and in a coordinated fashion to achieve maximum performance. The generator itself is extremely rugged, built to a high quality standard and supremely masters even extreme ambient conditions such as those prevailing on ships and offshore platforms. The use of the well-proven Micalastic insulation system, the precise rotor alignment using the finite element method as well as 3D simulation ensure that stiffness and damping perfectly interact with one another to achieve optimized vibration behavior securing generator service lives of over 40 years. Extensive possibilities offered by condition monitoring allow predictive maintenance concepts to be applied, where non-scheduled downtimes are a thing of the past. And if service is recommended, then SIGENTICS M units are extremely service friendly, for example, the rectifier bridge is very accessible.

Through the global service network – with a hotline that can be reached around the clock – and presence in 190 countries, in an emergency you can depend on a fast and quick response. In 45 countries there are a total of 400 special workshops, which are also specialized in industrial generators. Based on our experience and knowledge gained from more than 150 years in the area of electrical engineering and power generation, we are a solid and reliable partner there at your side.
