Engineered with compact dimensions, mtu power generation engines are easily integrated into generators. Covering a performance spectrum of between 249 to 3,490 kW, they are ideal for use in emergency, base load and peak load gensets (prime/standby power: 50/60 Hz). mtu gendrive engines feature high constant duty capabilities even under frequently changing loads, high starting reliability and availability as well as the high specific power outputs of our drive systems. Long maintenance intervals and efficient, fuel-optimized operation ensure low operating costs, while engine technologies fulfill emissions regulations as well. mtu genset engines are ideal for use in hospitals, data centers, airports, office complexes, shopping centers and industrial facilities. And they are also well suited for public utilities, hotels or casinos.
Even today, our mtu Series 4000 and Series 1600 engines for power generation are approved to run on synthetic paraffinic diesel fuels in accordance with EN 15940, which includes the biofuel HVO. In 2023, approval for Series 2000 and Series 4000 engines in key applications is expected as well. HVO is one of the first commercially available fuels that can be used to power internal combustion engines in a significantly more climate-friendly way.
