With an engine life of 84,000 hours before needing significant maintenance, the latest mtu Series 4000 biogas gensets showcase top-notch efficiency and power. These gensets are cost-effective in the long run and are crucial in advancing the energy transition.

 Rolls-Royce announced the launch of its MTU Series 4000 biogas gensets, designed for both power and heat generation. This latest offering is hailed for its efficiency, superior power density, and reduced life cycle costs. In a significant stride towards sustainable energy, Thailand’s starch production company, Tongjit, is set to be the first to utilise the new mtu biogas gensets. These gensets will facilitate electricity and hot steam supply to their facilities.

These biogas solutions are a game-changer for industrial clients. They can generate electricity, ensuring a stable power supply even during outages. The company brings a trusted solution from its rich legacy and experience with the earlier models (L32 for biogas and L64FNER for natural gas). The company boasts a track record of delivering over 4,000 Series 4000 gensets catering to the diverse needs of the global gas market.  The features include:

  • Delivers an electrical output of  1,521 kW.
  • Peak electrical efficiency of  44.1%.
  • Overall efficiency surpasses  90%.
  • Design enhancement led to a  30% increase in output compared to the Series 4000L32FB predecessor.
  • Despite being compact, it has power equivalent to the  16-cylinder L32 model.

The 12-cylinder mtu biogas genset has been launched and is currently available. Customers can also anticipate the release of additional cylinder configurations in 2024. The new gensets also prioritise reduced maintenance and life cycle costs, promising a whopping 84,000 operational hours until a significant overhaul is necessary. For businesses, this translates to substantial cost savings. These gensets are also equipped to align with stringent global exhaust gas standards, like Germany’s 44th BImSchV.

Mtu gas systems, powered by biogas, stand out for their CO2-neutral, reliable, and consistent energy supply. These systems cater to a company’s internal energy requirements and fortify grid stabilisation. Especially during energy crises and unreliable solar and wind energy durations, these biogas systems emerge as a consistent, eco-friendly, and adaptable electricity source. Rolls-Royce’s inaugural installation of the 12-cylinder mtu Series 4000 L64FB biogas CHP is at Tongjit. This move will empower the firm to self-sustain its electricity needs, translating to an impressive annual saving of around 600,000 euros.

Vittorio Pierangeli, the Vice President of Global Powergen at Rolls-Royce’s Power Systems division, highlighted the global usability of the new Series 4000 L64FB engines. He noted their robust nature, emphasising their consistent high-performance delivery in varying ambient temperatures, humid conditions, and altitudes.
