Newly announced MTU Electric Drilling Package combines into one factory-assembled package — with fuel economy plus extended maintenance intervals benefits.
Each rugged self-contained EDP comprises diesel engine, generator, radiator, and control panel mounted on a rigid base frame. The generator is powered by MTU 12V 4000 G73 engine — capable of producing 1,482 bhp / 1,105 kW plus 10% overload capability at 1,200 rpm. A second generation common rail fuel injection offers “greater precision and superior fuel economy,” according to the manufacturer.
Most modern rigs will use three or more EDPs to deliver all rig power needs — from mud pump, drill table, and top drive to lights, heating and air conditioning. Complete MTU EDP information is free upon request.
