Since September 2008, the Tognum Group has been gradually consolidating its decentralized power generation operations under the umbrella of MTU Onsite Energy. The product range includes standardized and customized diesel gensets for emergency stand-by, base and peak load applications as well as compact cogeneration modules powered by gas engines or gas turbines for the generation of both heat and power.
Our diesel generator sets, gas-powered cogeneration systems, power stations and gas turbine products cover a full power range. MTU Onsite Energy power systems are based on diesel engines with up to 10,000 kilowatts (kW) power output, gas engines up to 2,150 kW and gas turbines up to 45,000 kW.
And we continue to develop greener alternatives, with systems that produce energy from climate-neutral, regenerative fuels, such as combined heat and power (CHP) plants fueled by biogas, landfill gas or sewage gas. Unlike wind and solar energy, which fluctuate due to weather conditions, clean power technologies produced by distributed generation plants ensure a constant flow of power.
