Rolls-Royce Power Systems AG Key Developments

Rolls-Royce to Supply Diesel Gen-Sets and Gas Turbine Packages to Royal Navy

Rolls-Royce will supply diesel gen-sets and gas turbine packages to Royal Navy. A total of 48 MTU diesel gen-sets would be delivered by the organization for 12 Duke-class (Type 23) frigates. As part of the Royal Navy s vessel life extension program, the vessels, which were constructed between 1985 and 2002, each would be fitted out with four new MTU 12V 4000 M53B diesel gen-sets. The gen-sets that each deliver 1650 kW, would be supplied from late 2016 to Devonport Naval Base, where the repowering work is being executedby Babcock Marine. The agreement also covers a logistics package for the provision of spare parts and an introductory training package. Rolls-Royce will be responsible for the total power output of the Duke-class frigates following the new engines are in place. The propulsion system would include Rolls-Royce Spey SM1A or SM1C gas turbines with the MTU diesel gen-sets, allowing the vessels to speed up to up to 28 knots. A deal has also been inked by Rolls-Royce with the Royal Navy to provide MT30 gas turbine packages for the first three Type 26 Global Combat Ships.

Rolls-Royce has signed an EUR 80 million (£57 million) contract with General Dynamics European Land Systems to deliver 589 MTU Series 199 diesel engines for new British Army armoured vehicles. Delivery of the engines is to start in 2016, with the last engines to be delivered in 2022. According to Rolls-Royce, this will be the first time that MTU engines have been used in British Army vehicles.

Weir Oil & Gas and Rolls-Royce’S MTU Expand Relationship to Jointly Develop New Joint Venture Company

Weir Oil & Gas and the Rolls-Royce Power Systems company MTU announced they will form a new joint venture company to oversee the development of their new power system to make hydraulic fracturing operations more efficient. The new joint venture will serve as a one-stop shop for the oil and gas exploration industry for sales and service of a system that will be used for hydraulic fracturing operations during the well completion stage of shale oil and gas projects. The Weir-MTU power system integrates the engine, transmission and hydraulic fracturing pump into one purpose built power system for fracturing. The new joint venture company, which will be named at a later date, is expected to be in operation by the beginning of 2016.
