Hybrid E-Frac Solutions

Fully unfold your
E-Frac potential

Sharply lower oil prices, high operating costs, growing governmental oversight – today’s well stimulating companies struggle to make a profit. Hybrid E-frac solutions with mtu EnergyPacks effectively address these

challenges. By intelligently integrating power generation assets with modern battery energy storage systems (BESS), they offer numerous advantages.

Optimized operating efficiency

Hybrid E-frac solutions enable continuous genset operation at peak load and maximum productivity. That translates into lower fuel consumption, operating hours and costs.

Lower CO2 emissions

In their ability to greatly enhance genset operating efficiency and fuel savings, hybrid E-frac solutions significantly reduce harmful emissions.

Power supply stability

mtu EnergyPacks respond to frequency changes within milliseconds and continuously balance fluctuating power generation asset load demands to ensure power supply availability.

Modular fuel flexibility

Whether gas, diesel or dual fuel, hybrid E-frac solutions allow for seamless integration with a variety of frac spread setups.

Reduced maintenance

Designed for long life and high operating hours, hybrid E-frac solutions greatly prolong preventive maintenance and overhaul intervals, extending equipment lifespan.


Hybrid E-frac solutions are modular, scalable, flexible and mobile. All components are delivered in containers or on trailers for quick and easy redeployment.

Reliable, sustainable and economical energy solutions

Scalable solutions for every customer need.


How to cut OPEX by up to 70%

Hydraulic fracturing with a gas turbine generator is very energy and operationally cost intensive. Hybrid E-frac solutions intelligently manage and optimize mission critical power supply assets, thereby enabling significantly lower operating costs and emissions.  

Download this use case to learn how you can:

  • Substantially lower operating costs
  • Reduce  C02  emissions
  • Store surplus energy
  • Reduce maintenance costs

Optimized to fit your setup

Hybrid E-frac solutions are easily integrated with virtually all types of frac setups and applications. Here are three typical configurations.

Configuration 1 -
Replacement for a turbine E-Frac setup

Excellent solutions for microgrid and storage projects

mtu EnergyPacks

Highly compact and scalable, these battery energy storage systems (BESS) are the ideal solution for optimizing frequency and voltage stability, power supply availability and overall profitability of onshore oil and gas operations. Covering the full power storage range from 400 kW to 2 MW, they store surplus energy and supplement it where needed within 1.5 milliseconds.

mtu microgrid controller

Serving as the “brain,” the mtu microgrid controller seamlessly coordinates energy storage and demand between individual power generation assets. It precisely balances power supply and use for every specific demand, thus optimizing costs, carbon footprint and availability.

mtu Series 4000 gas genset

Superior low load operation capabilities and excellent load acceptance make our gas generator sets a perfect fit for wide-ranging frac applications. Delivering the best power density in their class, they also provide a high degree of safety in case backup power is called for.
