MTU's compact, reliable, high-performance diesel engines and generator sets are specially designed to meet the high demands and extreme conditions found on offshore platforms in the oil and gas industry, particularly in areas where safety is the top priority.

Extreme conditions at sea call for reliable power solutions. Our generator sets' consistent high start and operational reliability minimizes the risk of harm to people as well as equipment. Also, it reduces downtime and standstill costs. MTU engines have proven their reliability driving power generators (backup, standby and continuous power) as well as offshore drilling equipment and pumps for decades. They drive emergency power supply engines, fire-extinguishing pumps on platforms or operate mud pumps and frac drives. In areas that are at risk of explosion, our offshore services are available with various safety designs and certifications, such as NFPA 20. 

MTU offshore solutions are also very cost-effective. While low fuel consumption and minimal maintenance expenditure ensures low operating costs, our engines' high power-to-weight ratio and compact size encourages integration in complete offshore solutions, reducing the high costs of supporting structures on offshore platforms.
