Rolls-Royce Introduces New Onsite Diesel Generator Sets for North America

By Editors of Power Engineering

Rolls-Royce announced the Series 2000 MTU Onsite Energy diesel generator set product line is now available for the 60 HZ North American market. With a power output range from 615 kWe to 1250 kWe, it expands the company’s high-power range product portfolio.

The new systems, DS750, DS800, DS1000 and DS1250, offer up to three circuit breakers mounted and wired from the factory, a 74.7 dBA sound level, and a 190 mph wind rating. Additional features of the generator sets include:

  • Higher power density per square foot, achieving 1250 kWe with an MTU 16V2000 engine providing more power from a smaller footprint
  • 190mph steel and aluminium wind-rated enclosures
  • Best-in-class factory sound enclosure for L3

The modular controls cockpit features a brand-new backend concept for mounting and wiring circuit breakers and controls along with a full line of SER circuit breaker solutions. The new generator sets are both IBC and OSHPD certified.

“The new Series 2000 diesel generator sets provide customers the best-in-class reliability and cost-efficiency that they have come to expect from MTU Onsite Energy products,” said Kevin McKinney, senior sales manager at MTU Onsite Energy. “No other OEM offers the quantity of optional accessories, breakers, sound attenuation level and wind rating all in one package, with or without IBC/OSHPD Certification. By providing these options pre-engineered and validated from the factory, we can inherently improve quality, reliability and provide a more cost-effective solution.”

MTU Onsite Energy is part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems, a maker of diesel and gas-based power and propulsion systems for a wide variety of applications.
