The Mk III decreases shield regeneration time to 50%.

Origin's Official Guide to Privateer 2

All ships regenerate shields at the same rate, regardless of how heavy or light these shields are. A shield regenerator speeds up this rate, so that once your shields are down, they'll come back on line faster.

When considering a shield generator enhancer, however, you may want to compare the price of the enhancer to the price of upgrading to a ship with better shields. If the shields are better, they can take more damage, so they won't go down as quickly in the first place. Also, with a ship upgrade you will probably get additional gun, missile and module mounts.
