Panda Fisher with PTO?

I am looking at getting at 12 KW Panda Fisher to replace my older, loud 15KW Isuzu. The boat is now in the Virgin Islands and needs A/C for charter so I am looking at adding two 16,000 BTU systems and need a quite gen set. My Isuzu run another pulley system that runs my 2nd refrig system compressor and my emergency Jacbsco bildge pump. Does anyone know if I can run a PTO off the Panda Fisher gen set?

DS...I don't think you can do a PTO from the Panda as:
1. They must only be operated with the cover on
2. The manual says nothing but the battery may be run off the alternator which to me says that a PTO would draw too much HP off the unit.
Obviously...FP can confirm this : service@fischerpanda.com
