The MTU EnergyPack is the ideal energy storage solution for whenever and wherever you need power the most. Similar to a big battery bank, it’s packed with all the latest technology built to withstand harsh environments and housed in a 40-foot steel container. MTU EnergyPack stores electricity from any source – grid power or local output from solar panels, wind turbines or generator sets – ready to deliver power at the flick of a switch.

Whether you need a fully autonomous off-grid facility or simply want to manage your power supplies more efficiently – such as engaging in peak shaving, load-shifting or grid stabilization – the MTU EnergyPack is a scalable, plug-and-play solution that provides reliable power, anytime and anywhere.

MTU Energypack 40FT: Reliable storage solution for microgrids

The new MTU EnergyPack is a key component for improving the reliability and profitability of your microgrid. It stores electricity from any distributed power system – such as gensets, wind turbines, or solar panels – and delivers it when needed. The MTU EnergyPack is a scalable all-in-one solution.

Grid stabilization

The MTU EnergyPack is able to provide grid support services and can autonomously form a grid, enabling customers to operate independently during grid outages.

Highest power density

Thanks to the extremely compact battery system design and the small footprint of the housing, the MTU EnergyPack is the ideal solution for projects with logistical restrictions and limited space.

Digitally connected

The MTU EnergyPack is equipped with a data logger providing access to our digital solutions, including remote monitoring, fast and reliable service support and – coming soon – further features such as predictive failure prevention and operational optimization.

Comprehensive safety features

A multilevel safety concept monitors the batteries, fire alarm and extinguishing system.

Black start capability

The storage container can be used as a black start unit due to its grid-mimicking capability.

Scalable in size

Storage capacity can be adapted easily to individual power storage requirements.

Ultra-fast response

By bringing power on-stream immediately, the MTU EnergyPack provides essential fast response capability for power quality, black starts, frequency response, and backup applications.

Flexible in use

The MTU EnergyPack answers a multitude of needs: storage of wind and solar power in microgrids, a UPS system, balancing peak loads, positive and negative control power, and many more.

Seamless integration with existing power plants

The system can be integrated with existing power plants, making it easy to expand capacity.

Plug-and-play design

The highly mobile, fully integrated plug-and-play design ensures fast, easy installation, reducing setup times and costs. Power is available more quickly and at lower cost.

Compact, flexible, autonomous.

Instant power wherever you need it.

Off-Grid Application
On-Grid Application
  • Off-Grid Application
  • On-Grid Application

Using battery storage in applications with little or no access to the public grid reduces your energy costs. Lower fuel consumption and minimal maintenance requirements reduce your overall operating costs, while cutting exhaust and noise emissions and ensuring the availability of reserve power.

By adding battery storage to applications with unlimited grid access, you can save costs and improve power management at the same time. Battery banks permit optimum load management (peak shaving and load shifting) and enable participation in the power balancing market (MTU equipment has all the necessary certifications).

Off-Grid Benefits

For stand-alone facilities (e.g. hotels and resorts)

Stored Energy allows for the integration of renewables (solar and wind) into a stand-alone grid. This cuts costs and ensures clean, reliable and quiet power all year.

For remote locations (e.g. mines)

Easy to install and maintain, the MTU EnergyPack ensures year-round frequency and voltage stability. It is also a guaranteed power supply, with the availability of backup power when it is needed.

For high-security installations

This easy-to-install energy storage solution is particularly suited to high-security installations that are not connected to the public grid and/or require independent power supplies for special needs.

On-Grid Benefits

For industrial & manufacturing use

Businesses with high energy demands benefit from an independent power supply, the elimination of grid charges, a greener image and emergency power supply.

For residential & utilities use

A cost-efficient, environmentally friendly and reliable source of power for residential buildings or entire districts.

For grid stabilization

Batteries respond to frequency changes within milliseconds, feeding power when frequency drops. It also absorbs power from the grid as soon as frequency rises.

For infrastructure use

A growing number of electric vehicles need charging quickly without straining the grid. Battery charging stations can use green electricity from local, renewable resources.

The MTU EnergyPack 40FT

MTU EnergyPack 40FT is a scalable all-in-one solution that stores electricity from any distributed power system – such as gensets, wind turbines, or solar panels – and delivers it when needed.
