The oil and gas industry is one of the hardest and at the same time sensitive applications in which diesel engines are used. The operational conditions – regardless of whether on-shore or off-shore – are difficult, the demands for performance and efficiency are uncompromising, and the safety standards are extremely high. MTU diesel engines perfectly match this special application profile – and have done so for several decades.
The ideal aptitude of this application is due to the special features of our engines on the one hand, for example water-cooled exhaust collection lines and exhaust turbochargers or quick action flaps.
On the other hand they can also make optimal use of typical MTU advantages and features. The compact design and low weight of our engines require only minimum cover surfaces and supporting structures – an invaluable advantage on oil platforms.
Other advantages include our reliability, profitability, exemplary environmental friendliness, a wide ranging line of accessories, and last but not least our experience in optimally applying drive technology. We make use of this experience for you – regardless of whether we deliver an engine or a complete system integration and documentation customized to individual project specifications.
