Full flexibility

The full mtu Series 1600 portfolio offers the best solution for all kinds of applications and requirements.

Highest and fastest availability

Full power output within a few seconds with industry leading load factors and meeting NFPA 110

Maximum resilience

Even under hot ambient conditions and in high altitude environments.

Low life-cycle cost

Lifetime Extension Kits and optimized maintenance schedules keep the life cycle costs and service efforts at a minimum.

Full flexibility. Fully scalable.

With its unique low-load operation capability the  mtu  Series 1600 guarantees maximum fuel savings in combination with renewables to reduce C02 emissions while still ensuring a stable grid. This makes the  mtu  Series 1600 gensets a perfect match for solar-PV hybrid applications and microgrids.

Highest and fastest availability

Mission-critical systems require fast-start capability and one-step load acceptance. That’s why we have designed our systems to make more power available within only a few seconds. We offer industry-leading load factors of up to 100%, which exceed the established industry norms and allow even more operating hours for prime, emergency standby and data center applications.

This way, we can deliver sophisticated power solutions with even more actual available power than other manufacturers with the same nominal power — whatever the circumstances. With the recent introduction of the Data Center Continuous Rating our  mtu  Series 1600 products are also in compliance with the high requirements of the Uptime Institute’s Tier I-IV certification levels. Thousands of  mtu  system solutions provide peace of mind all around the world.

Maximum resilience

Our  mtu  Series 1600 gensets operate trouble-free with the highest power quality even under extreme conditions. They have proven their resiliency again and again in continuous operation and with full loads in the heat, cold, and dust, as well as with frequent load changes. In addition to their well-known longevity, their low-maintenance construction and long service intervals also ensure cost-effectiveness. They minimize expenses and downtime and ensure that all equipment is fully operational again in record time. The thermodynamics of our  mtu  Series 1600 engines are specifically designed for power generation purposes with a focus on sound attenuation and noise reduction.

Low life-cycle costs

mtu  Series 1600 gensets are well known for their low life-cycle costs. They show best-in-class values for low fuel consumption and resilience. With our time-based overhaul concept for the Series 1600, there is also no need for intermediate overhauls or replacement of major engine components during the engine‘s lifetime.Once the standard end-of-life is reached, our scheduled Series 1600 overhaul solution provides the same peace of mind as a traditional overhaul, but at a fraction of the cost. Before the probability of wear-out related failures increases, time-worn components are replaced, ensuring the same availability as before. A removal or reinstallation of the system is not required, only an exchange of selected engine components.
