Weir Oil & Gas and Rolls-Royce Power Systems Company MTU Agree to Jointly Develop Power Systems
May 6 14
Weir Oil & Gas and Rolls-Royce Power Systems company MTU announced that they have signed an agreement to develop power systems specifically engineered for hydraulic fracturing. The system will be used for hydraulic fracturing operations during the well completion stage of shale oil and gas projects. The agreement outlines the companies plans to work together to address the market need for more reliable and continuous duty equipment. A team of engineers is concentrating on optimizing the interface of the three most critical components—the engine, transmission and fracturing pump to truly work as one system. Further, the complete packaged power system will utilize smart controls that provide conditioned monitoring and optimized performance for the operator. The Weir-MTU announcement builds on Weir’s innovative SPM pumping technology and the performance of the new MTU Frac Pack, which integrates the MTU Series 4000 T95 diesel engine and the ZF 8 TX transmission.
