MTU — the perfect match.

Experience and expertise makes MTU an unparalleled partner for marine defense. As the leading supplier of propulsion engines and systems to the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard, MTU has been exceeding expectations for more than 50 years. You can count on us for solutions that perfectly match your complex requirements at sea.

MTU engines are in a class of their own, featuring high power density and exceptional reliability even under extreme conditions. Since their introduction in 2000, Series 8000 engines have set the benchmark for modern diesel propulsion plants in the 7,200 kW to 10,000 kW power range. Recently, the Series 8000 was awarded NVR certification by the American Bureau of Shipping, a requirement for the U.S. Navy LCS and JHSV programs.

Our expertise extends to ship automation systems and high-value, low-risk solutions for complete propulsion systems. And just like the vessels we power, MTU is always on call. Whatever or wherever your mission may be, expert support is available through our global MTU ValueCare service network.
