DIESEL GENERATOR SETS mtu SERIES 4000

Providing mission-critical power for 25 years.
POWER RANGE 50 Hz: 1,600 – 4,000 kVA

25 years of excellence, fine-tuned

No matter how specific your energy supply requirements, our solutions always give you excellence that is fine-tuned to your exact needs. The mtu Series 4000 diesel generator sets have been doing just that for over 25 years already – for data centers, hospitals, airports, industrial plants, residential buildings, public facilities, decentralized power stations, microgrids, hybrid solutions and numerous other applications around the world. Available in six different power ratings, including standby, prime

and continuous power, the mtu Series 4000 diesel gensets cover the range from 1,600 to 4,000 kVA (50 Hz) and from 1,125 to 3,250 kWe (60 Hz). In addition to meeting highest quality, performance and fuel efficiency demands, they continue to define the benchmark for excellence with a variety of highly flexible, eco- and cost-efficient features, including low- and medium-voltage alternators, various controller configurations and mechanical or electrical radiators.

Full lifecycle services

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

Clean technology

A pioneer in developing environmentally friendly engines and reducing emissions

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.

Clean technology

Helping clients to achieve the ambitious emissions reductions targets laid out in the Paris Agreement requires solutions that are both innovative and individually adaptable. More than anything, it calls for a corporate commitment aimed at continually pioneering ever cleaner and more sustainable technological advancements.

In addition to meeting highest standards in fuel efficiency, our Series 4000 generator sets can now also be operated with renewable drop-in fuels like hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) or synthetic fuels such as Gas-to-Liquid (GtL) in accordance with the EN15940 standard. The use of renewable fuels alone can lead to significant C02 reductions over the complete lifecycle. Renewable fuels such as HVO are one crucial step to combine proven and reliable diesel generators for mission-critical backup power with your journey to net-zero.
