DIESEL GENERATOR SETS mtu SERIES 4000

Providing mission-critical power for more than 25 years.

Reliable energy supply: Anytime, anywhere

No matter how different the requirements for distributed energy supply are, mtu systems will always give you the best solution. Our Series 4000 diesel-powered generator sets can be designed flexibly depending on the application and location. They are available in six different ratings — including Standby, Prime and Data Center Continuous Power — and can be installed as either mobile or stationary units. The performance range runs from 1,600 to 4,000 kVA (50 Hz) and from 1,125 to 3,250 kWe (60 Hz).

No matter which design you choose, our generator sets meet the highest demands in terms of quality, performance and fuel efficiency. Wherever and whenever they are needed, they ensure reliable power supply in the event of a grid failure – in hospitals, data centers, airports, healthcare, waste water treatment plants, industrial manufacturing plants, residential buildings, public facilities, decentralized power stations, microgrids and hybrid solutions.

Superior Power

Providing the highest power density with industry-leading load factors and up to 4,000 kVA (50Hz) and 3,250 kWe (60Hz)

Highest Power Quality

Extremely fast ramp up, best load acceptance and transient behavior with minimal frequency and voltage deviations

Maximum Resilience

High performance even under hot ambient conditions and in high altitude environments

Full Lifecycle Services

Value Care Agreements and a wide range of service products to minimize downtime and reduce lifecycle costs

Superior power

Mission-critical systems require fast-start capability and one-step load acceptance. That’s why we have designed our systems to offer more available power within only a few seconds. We offer industry leading load factors up to 100% for data centers and up to 85% for standby applications. This exceeds the established industry norms 

such as ISO 8528-1 and allows 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 — regardless of the circumstances.

Highest power quality

In case of an emergency, our mtu Series 4000 generator sets will provide their full electrical power within a few seconds – synchronized to the grid, to another power source or to other gensets in parallel. They are capable of accepting extremely high load steps without having significant frequency and voltage deviations and sacrificing the power quality. All mtu Series 4000 generator sets overachieve ISO 8528-5 performance class G2 and G3 and their respective performance and power quality requirements for dynamic loading application, removal and recovery time. Even while keeping all performance limits for G3, mtu Series 4000 generator sets can accept more than 50% load in the first step and 100% block load acceptance according to NFPA 110 requirements is also possible.

Extremely fast load acceptance

Higher load steps possible for fast availability

Minimal frequency and voltage deviations

Maximum resilience

Our mtu Series 4000 gensets operate trouble-free with the highest power quality even under extreme conditions. They have proven their resilience 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.

Full lifecycle services

With mtu products you get the power, performance and peace of mind to focus on what matters most — your business. Our digitally connected power systems, wrapped in mtu ValueCare Agreements, make it easy to optimize lifecycle costs, maximize uptime and devote more time and resources to your core business, with tailored solutions to move your business forward.

Service products such as our manufacturer’s certified Lifetime- Based Overhauls (LTBO) sustain the operation of the equipment for another lifecycle and significantly reduce the risk of failure due to aging or corrosion. Lifetime-Based Overhauls are conveniently conducted onsite without removing the equipment.

Additionally, our Extended Coverages provide warranty of unexpected repair cost beyond your standard warranty, tailored specifically to meet your needs and up to 5 years.
