Liebherr has many years of experience in the construction of gas engines. The first 6-cylinder gas engine was produced in Bulle in 1996. Today, the product portfolio includes different versions with 4 to 20 cylinders. The current generation of engines has consistently been matched to the requirements of stationary electricity and heat generation in combined heat and power units as well as gensets.
- Efficient: With a mechanical efficiency rating of over 43%, Liebherr gas engines offer the best efficiency values of their performance category.
- Reliable: Our gas engines are designed for continuous operation. Thanks to their high reliability and low downtimes, an availability of considerably more than 8,000 operating hours per year can be achieved.
- Service-oriented: Clearly visible and easily accessible parts make service work on the engines very easy. In addition, all components are selected and optimised with the aim of achieving the longest possible maintenance intervals. The result is a very attractive total cost of ownership (TCO) for Liebherr gas engines.
Versatile application possibilities
Operation with biogas Application example: biogas
The use of gas from biomass allows the utilisation of previously unused energy sources. Liebherr gas engines can be operated with biogas and thus make a contribution to the renewable energy power supply.
Operation with natural gas Application example: combined heat and power unit
Natural gas impresses by its very high efficiency and low CO2 emissions. The clean combustion of the gas allows Liebherr gas engine to be operated with low maintenance costs.
Operation with special gases Application example: Sewage treatment plant
On request, Liebherr gas engines can also be operated using other gases, such as sewage gas or landfill gas.
