MTU

MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH is a manufacturer of commercial internal combustion engines founded by Wilhelm Maybach and his son Karl Maybach in 1909. MTU derives from Motoren- und Turbinen-Union meaning “Motor (Engine) and Turbine Union”. The company manufactures diesel engines for trains, ships, oil and gas installations, military vehicles, agriculture, mining and construction equipment, as well as diesel generators and molten carbonate fuel cells.

Rolls-Royce is introducing an MTU Onsite Energy CBU genset based on the new 12, 16 and 18-cylinder versions of the Series 2000 engine. The gensets will produce between 750 and 1,400 kVA. They are equipped with a common-rail high-pressure fuel-injection system.
