MTU Detroit Diesel’s new electric drilling package (EDP) will make its North American debut at the Offshore Technology Conference. The EDP is a turnkey solution for oil & gas applications and is designed to meet high power and low fuel consumption demands of the oil and as industry.

The self-contained EDP consists of a diesel engine, generator, radiator and control panel mounted on a rigid base frame. The generator is powered by an MTU 12V 4000 G73 engine capable of producing 1,105 kW (1,482 bhp) plus 10% overload capability at 1,200 rpm. It has been specifically designed for high run times and harsh operating environments of the oil and gas industry. The second generation common rail fuel injection is provided by the Tognum subsidiary L’Orange.

The EDP is completely factory built, meaning MTU is the single source for all system components, which are factory certified and covered under an MTU warranty. Each system component is listed in the company’s parts system and is supported by any of its service locations worldwide.

The company also will have on display a 16 cylinder version of its hazardous duty Series 4000 engine for offshore applications and its Series 60 engine, long available for oil and gas and marine industry applications.

MTU Detroit Diesel is the North American regional headquarters of MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH and is the sales and after sales organization of the Tognum Group in North America.
