The new 550 kW prime-rated power module from MTU Onsite Energy is specially designed
for maximum application flexibility and debuts as MTU Onsite Energy’s introduction
to the mobile and rental generator market.  The generator is powered by the award-winning MTU 12V 1600
engine.

This MTU Onsite Energy unit
is prime-rated to an average 24-hour load factor of 75 per cent with a varying
load, as compared to the typical 70 percent average 24-hour load factor for a most
often used for a prime-rated generator set. This makes the MTU Onsite Energy unit
ideal for prime, emergency and standby use in demanding applications such as
mining, quarrying or powering industrial processes. The sound-attenuated
package is fully self-contained for ease of transport, delivery, set up, and
power integration in applications involving mobile prime or emergency power.

“The new 550 kilowatt prime power module from MTU Onsite Energy features the
highest fuel efficiency in its class,” says Al Prosser, director of sales for MTU
Onsite Energy. “The package is
also very easy to operate and service, with simple gauges, digital controls and
convenient enclosure access points. The unit has been extensively field-tested
and is currently being used to power mobile rock crushing and aggregate loading
equipment at Wendling Quarries,
one of the largest quarrying companies in the Midwest.”

The rugged ISO container (CSC certified) is designed for hot, cold and dusty
environments and is rated to 50 Celsius.


 

The generator set’s flexibility shows through in its user-friendly
paralleling capabilities.  Centrally
located connection points make it easy to integrate the unit with other
generator sets when serving larger loads, and digital controls simplify
synchronization.  The generator set
also features switchable 50/60 Hertz frequency and switchable voltage settings
from 208 volts to 480 volts in the 60 Hertz mode. The 50 Hertz model operates at 400
volts. A 600 volt non-switchable version is available as well. 

The rugged ISO container (CSC certified) is designed for hot, cold and dusty
environments and is rated to 50 Celsius.  Sound production is limited by the enclosure to 75 decibels at
full power.  Cooling air is
redirected to reduce airflow sound and exhaust noise is reduced by a custom
internal silencer.  Additional
sizes of prime-rated power modules from MTU Onsite Energy will be introduced in
the second half of 2011.
