The brand mtu Onsite Energy is part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems.
Diesel units of up to 3,400 kVA and gas engine systems up to 2,500 kW are being presented under the mtu Onsite Energy brand. An 18V 2000 diesel genset will be on show, based on the new generation Series 2000 mtu engines introduced in 2015. It uses common rail technology and can produce up to 1,400 kVA. The company will also be exhibiting a model of a 16V 4000 container genset for the 50 Hz and 60 Hz markets. This is being offered with power outputs of 2,560 kVA for the 50 Hz market and 2,321 kW for the 60 Hz market. From its gas engine range, mtu Onsite Energy will have a model of a 16V 4000 power module on the stand with a rating of 2,000 kWe.
mtu Onsite Energy's decentralised gas and diesel engine systems are used in continuous operation scenarios and also for peak generation and emergency power applications.
