Engines for Commercial Marine

We are one of the world’s leaders in large marine diesel and gas engines and complete propulsion systems for commercial marine vessels.

For decades, commercial marine operations have trusted MTU propulsion systems at sea, in rivers and lakes around the world. Depending on your individual requirements, we offer different solutions such as our marine diesel and gas engines and hybrid marine systems. They perform reliably and efficiently as main or ancillary drive systems and provide energy as on-board power supply systems. Their performance, power and reliability have been proven and their longevity is unmatched. Naturally, all MTU marine engines also comply with the requirements of all relevant classification societies.

As a system provider, we understand the responsibilities you have at sea and are determined to ensure you are able to perform these activities to the best of your ability, and for as long as you can.
