Power Generation

Gas Generator Sets

Power range:
50 Hz: 250 – 2,535 kWe
60 Hz: 30 – 2,514 kWe

Industries and locations may vary, but the need for constant power never changes.

mtu gas-powered generator sets provide you with continuous, economical, reliable, and future-ready power. Utilizing natural gas, biogas or other gases, mtu generator sets feature cutting-edge technology for combined heat and power (CHP), as well as combined heat, power

and cooling (CHPC) solutions. All of our gas gensets feature high efficiency and low emissions in the 250 kWe - 2,535 kWe electrical power range. In addition, our mtu Series 500 and mtu Series 4000 gas gensets also offer hydrogen blending, for even more ecofriendly operarions.


Low lifecycle costs from extended maintenance intervals and reduced oil consumption.


Proven technology, with thousands of successful installations worldwide.

Clean Technology

Latest state of the art technologies including exhaust gas after treatment system.


Supply guarantee if local grids fail or are unreliable.

Hydrogen blending

mtu Series 500 gas generator sets
mtu Series 4000 gas generator sets
Renewable energy sources will play a pivotal role for the power supply of the future, particularly from sources like sun and wind. Hydrogen produced from renewables by means of electrolysis is referred to as “green” hydrogen. Hydrogen generated in this way can be used as a climate-neutral fuel by modern gas engines, which convert it into electricity in a highly efficient manner. The waste heat can be used for heating and cooling. Our mtu Series 500 and mtu Series 4000 engines are available for hydrogen blending.
