Diesel engines for Limited Time Power, Prime and Continuous Power

Important facts about the product range and applications

Security of supply in all areas of use: MAN Engines offers reliable diesel engines for Emergency Standby Power (ESP) and Limited Time Running Power (LTP), Prime Power (PRP) and Continuous Power (COP) mode. In ESP and LTP operation, engines with an output of 396 kW to 1,117 kW supply emergency power during power outages, for instance in facilities prone to failure, and thus impress with their dependable and fast load pick-up.

PRP engines with a power range from 360 kW to 836 kW cover short-term peak demands, e.g. at power supply companies and energy-intensive industries. In the same way, the engines in COP operation (264 kW to 640 kW) prove their endurance with operation up to 8,000 hours per year.

Peak load, emergency power, and basic provision – stable running and dynamic, MAN diesel engines are dependable energy suppliers in every segment and guarantee efficient power supply thanks to their sturdy and compact construction and their high economic efficiency.

In times of nuclear and coal phase-out, the question of a safe and clean energy supply is increasingly in the focus of power producers. MAN Engines has been offering solutions in this sector for decades, supplying CHP manufacturers with robust, clean gas engines. The use of special gases such as biogas and sewage gas has proven to be particularly sustainable and popular. But with wood gasification, a lesser-known technology has recently come back into focus. Here, too, MAN Engines and its partners serve a still small but steadily growing market with powerful gas engines.
