mtu to showcase innovative power technology at OTC 2014
Posted on May 05, 2014
MTU America Inc. will showcase several mtu engines and complete system solutions at the 2014 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), May 5-8 in Houston.
Highlighting the mtu exhibit in Booth No. 4574 at OTC 2014 will be mtu’s new Bi-Fuel Kit, which will be displayed on the mtu 12V 4000 S83 engine. This new system employs an integrated bi-fuel control architecture designed specifically for well service and pressure pumping (frac) applications. The mtu Bi-Fuel Kit enables operators to utilize natural gas as a fuel source for their diesel-powered equipment, thus providing a solution to significantly reduce fuel costs. The Bi-Fuel Kit will soon be available for new or existing mtu 12V 4000 S83 engines.
Another highlight of the mtu exhibit will be the mtu Frac Pack, a powerful solution for hydraulic fracturing applications. The Frac Pack is powered by the mtu Series 4000 T95, which is available in a 12-cylinder configuration that offers three power ratings: 1678 kW (2250 bhp), 1864 kW (2500 bhp) and 1939 kW (2600 bhp In the Frac Pack, the T95 is coupled with the new ZF 8TX transmission, which OTC attendees will have the opportunity to view in both the mtu and ZF booths. The T95 engine is also available as a loose engine in a 16-cylinder configuration with a power output of 2237 kW (3000 bhp). It is engineered to achieve EPA Tier 4 final emissions standards utilizing advanced internal engine technology, eliminating the need for any aftertreatment.
The mtu exhibit at OTC 2014 will also feature:
- The mtu 12V 4000 P83 engine, the off-shore industry benchmark for emergency backup power and fire pump systems, which produces 1680 kW (2253 bhp) of power. The P83 engine also features an advanced redundant engine control unit (ECU), which meets current NFPA 20 safety requirements.
- mtu Mobile Rig Power Module, powered by the mtu Series 1300 on-highway certified engine, offers the same legendary high standards of reliability and durability as its predecessor, the Series 60, with improved emissions technology and load performance. The on-highway certified Series 1300 offers a power range of 350-470 bhp and is certified for use in all 50 states.
- OTC attendees are also invited to visit the mtu ValueCare display in the mtu exhibit, which will feature a Series 4000 remanufactured engine block, which provides show attendees with a before-and-after look at the dramatic results achieved through the mtu ValueExchange remanufacturing process. The display will also offer information on mtu’s complete portfolio of genuine parts and expert service.
