Standby Power

Gensets from this application group are used wherever power outages put lives at risk, result in economic loss or where an emergency power supply is required by law: in the  healthcare sector, at  airports, in  industrial facilities,  data centers or  power plants.   
The aim is to maintain power supply in the event of a mains failure by using a standby genset. 

To provide optimum solutions for the varying requirements, MTU Onsite Energy differentiates between various types of emergency gensets. All of them exceed the specifications required by the applicable ISO rule.
