Solutions to secure continuous power

MTU continous, peak and prime power solutions are designed to operate for long periods

Continuous + CHP

Continuous power gensets are designed for long term use with constant or varying loads. They are primarily used for the base load generation of electricity, in remote locations with limited access to the public grid. They can operate as island, island-parallel or grid-parallel applications. They can also be used for combined heat and power generation (CHP).

Prime

Prime power applies to installations where utility power is unavailable or unreliable. At varying load, the number of genset operating hours is unlimited.

Peak

Peak power is focused on providing additional short-term power to the grid (peak shaving). This application becomes relevant whenever renewable power sources like solar or wind are used that might not always be able to provide the full power demand for example during peak load times.

Turning heat and power into rich ice cream

Germany’s largest ice cream producer operates out of Heppenheim in the beautiful southern state of Hesse. Langnese makes ice cream for the whole of Europe here. Since the end of 2009, a MTU heatcontrolled cogeneration plant (CHP) has been in service here to partly cover the high demand for heat and power. The MTU 16-cylinder Series 4000 natural gas engine from a MTU heatcontrolled achieves an efficiency factor of 87.1% by optimizing the utilization of heat. The combined heat and power plant allows Langnese to adapt heat generation flexibly to satisfy peak production demands in its factory.
