Product Portfolio
  • mtu SERIES 4000


    Biogas is an effective, efficient fuel option for a sustainable future. Agricultural farms, sewage and wastewater treatment plants, as well as landfills are already benefiting from its use and potential as a revenue stream. All of our generator sets combine the highest performance with the lowest emissions in the 762 kWe - 2,547 kWe power range.

    From biomass to megawatts — generating a sustainable source of income with agricultural waste  

    Biogas has three major advantages: It can be stored, it is very economical to produce, and it is very eco-friendly. Our new generation of mtu gas gensets allows for cost-saving, sustainable and efficient operation using biogas. Continuously updated and further developed for over 25 years, the mtu Series 4000 optimizes the use of biogas both for primary power supply and to balance energy peaks. And best of all: It also creates the potential for a new revenue stream through waste-to-energy applications.

    • Storable fuel solution: Biogas can be produced and stored regardless of weather conditions, making it ideal for providing base load energy.
    • Clean operations: Biogas is a 100% renewable, reliable, and predictable fuel that comes from local sources. It requires no transportation, which results in yet additional emissions reduction.
    • Flexible: Biogas plants offer an important contribution to flexibly closing gaps in a wind and solar energy system and a solution for balancing energy peaks.
    • Sustainability: The generation of electricity and heat by biogas is CO2 neutral. When biomass is used as an energy source for biogas CHPs, CO2 is first captured from the atmosphere by the plants before it is then emitted again via combustion. Using landfill and sewage gas as an energy source for biogas CHPs avoids greenhouse gas emissions that would otherwise be released uncontrolled into the atmosphere.
