MTU – Booth No. 84430, South Hall
The MTU exhibit, located in the convention center’s South Hall, will feature the company‘s complete power range of EPA Tier 4 compliant engines specially developed for off-highway applications in the construction, industrial and agricultural sectors.
Highlighting the Tier 4 compliant series, the booth will feature a cutaway model of the Series 1500, an in-line 6-cylinder engine with selective catalyst reduction (SCR) exhaust aftertreatment that is designed with ease of installation for OEMs. The Series 1500 offers power ratings from 400 kW to 460 kW (536 bhp to 617 bhp). Also on display in the booth will be the Series 1000, covering a power range from 100 to 260 kW (134 to 349 bhp) with SCR, the Series 1300, covering a power range from 320 to 390 kW (429 to 523 bhp), the Series 1600, which is available for the power range 567 up to 730 kW (760 up to 979 bhp), as well as the MTU Onsite Energy Series 1600 Generator Set, rated at 500 kWe.
Additionally, engines from MTU’s Series 2000 and 4000 product lines, which are designed for heavy-duty mining applications such as mine haul trucks and excavators, will be on display, including the 16V 2000 and the 12V 4000. Both engines are Tier 4 final-compliant without the use of exhaust aftertreatment, a first for the mining and construction industries.
The all-new MTU Power Drive Unit, used for providing mechanical power to a variety of equipment, such as pumps, drills and various industrial machines, will also be featured.
