Power Generation

Residential & Utilities

As population grows, so does the demand for energy. Now more than ever, a cost-effective and reliable energy supply for residential buildings and complexes is essential.

Reliability and efficiency make our combined heat and power (CHP) systems ideal for local power and heat supply. There are many benefits of using distributed energy supply systems powered by natural gas for residential areas. Generating heat from one large plant is a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly alternative to heating individual buildings with several smaller plants. Maintenance is easier and buildings can save space normally reserved for a boiler plant.

We also offer systems for standby and prime power. Our diesel generator sets excel in large residential complexes and other sensitive environments, which may include harsh temperature fluctuations, diverse power needs or high transient loads from air conditioners, compressors and fire pumps. Like all mtu power generation systems, they’re trusted all over the world to provide reliable power when it is needed the most.
