How to Convert Megawatts to Mechanical Horsepower

Convert megawatts to mechanical horsepower with this simple formula:

mechanical horsepower = megawatts × 1,341.02209

Converting a megawatt power measurement to a mechanical horsepower measurement involves multiplying the power by the conversion ratio to find the result. One megawatt is equal to 1,341.02209 mechanical horsepower, so to convert simply multiply by 1,341.02209.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megawatts to mechanical horsepower using the formula above.
5 MW = (5 × 1,341.02209) = 6,705.110448 hp(I)

Megawatts and mechanical horsepower are both units used to measure power. Learn more about power and find more power measurement conversion calculators. Megawatts are a power measurement and can be abbreviated as MW, for example 1 MW. Mechanical horsepower is a power measurement and can be abbreviated as hp(I), for example 1 hp(I).

Mechanical horsepower is often used to measure the output of engines and motors in North America and is equal to 745.69987158227022 watts, or joules per second. Electric horsepower is used to measure the output of electric motors and other electrical machines, and is equal to exactly 746 watts.
