We provide dependable diesel and gas power generation solutions that all types of agricultural operations — and their surrounding communities — count on every day.

With mtu biogas combined heat and power (CHP) systems, confined livestock operations can put organic material to efficient use. Our proven CHP systems provide renewable energy with lower emissions and reduced lifecycle costs. In many countries, CHP plants are supported by the government and the electricity produced can be sold back to utilities at a guaranteed tariff rate to generate more revenue. Our solutions for emergency backup power keeps rural agricultural operations running smoothly and avoids power outage that can place entire livestock production facilities and animal lives in danger - with inherent financial consequences. Our diesel generator sets cover a complete power range, featuring an industry-leading average load factor, with reliability, availability and designs that are tuned to the needs of today’s modern confined livestock operations. We supply all the expertise, equipment and services needed to integrate complete power solutions – from fuel supply to electrical design.

Biogas as a source of income

As a farmer, thanks to new technologies, you can extract carbon-neutral biogas from agricultural crops and bio-waste, crops like corn, as well as animal by-products such as manure. This allows you to generate additional income by converting the obtained biogas into heat and electricity, using it either on the farm or marketing and injecting it into
national supply grids.

From Pig Farmer to Energy Producer: Biogas plants with mtu Series 400 engines

20 February 2017

Pietro Bertesago rears pigs for the production of Parma ham. In 2008, he was the first farmer in the northern Italian province of Cremona to install a biogas plant and two years later, he introduced a second one. Both plants are based on mtu combined heat and power modules (CHP). The 12-cylinder, Series 400 engines each produce 282 kW of electrical power (kWel). The Italian government pays Bertesago 28 cents per kilowatt- hour — more than anywhere else in the world. Dairy farmer Giovanni Bertoni also has an mtu CHP plant which feeds around 250 kWel into the public grid around the clock.
