Rolls-Royce Supplies 36 Gas Gensets for Power Plant in Ghana

Rolls-Royce has delivered 36 MTU Onsite Energy brand natural-gas-powered gensets for a gas power plant in Accra, Ghana. The Type 16V 4000 L32 gensets produce 1,560 kW of electric power and will feed 56 MW into the countrys public grid. The VRA Tema Thermal Power Plant was built and is operated by the VPower Group. The power plant is scheduled to go into operation from May 2016 and is expected to play a significant role in stabilizing the country’s power supply network. The high-speed gas engines will be serviced by MTU Asia in cooperation with MTU South Africa.

Rolls-Royce to Supply 160 MTU Onsite Energy Gensets to Vpower Group

Rolls-Royce and the VPower Group have signed a strategic agreement that strengthens their partnership in power generation markets across China and the rest of Asia. A framework agreement for 2016 was also signed for the supply of 160 MTU Onsite Energy gas gensets based on 16V 4000 L32 units, each with 1,560 kW electrical power output. These agreements cement a long-lasting collaboration between MTU Onsite Energy and VPower. By signing the framework agreement, VPower is able to secure production capacity within MTU Onsite Energy enabling it to meet the needs of its customers at short notice. The MTU Onsite Energy brand is part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems.

MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH and Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Ltd. Sign an Agreement to Set Up a 50/50 Joint Venture

MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH (MTU) and Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Ltd. (GYMCL), signed an agreement to set up a 50/50 joint venture for the production, under licence from MTU, of MTU diesel engines in China. Each party will invest RMB 75 million in the joint venture. The joint venture will be based at GYMCL's primary manufacturing facilities in Yulin City in Guangxi Province, south China and is expected to begin production in 2017. The joint venture will produce MTU Series 4000 diesel engines compliant with China Tier 3 emission standards with power outputs ranging from 1,400 to 3,490 kW, primarily for the Chinese off-highway market, in particular for power generation and oil & gas applications. The joint venture will open up new growth opportunities for both partners, particularly in China and Asia. The joint venture will enable better access to the Chinese market for the MTU Series 4000 diesel engines, via the extensive sales and service network operated by GYMCL. GYMCL will, as a result of the joint venture, be able to offer its customers technologically advanced engines that have a proven record on the global market. The joint venture engines will be marketed by GYMCL and MTU Suzhou within China and by MTU and its subsidiaries exclusively outside China. From 2020, the sales territory of GYMCL will be extended to selected countries in South East Asia such as Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia. After a ramp-up phase of 3 to 5 years, the scope of the joint venture might (subject to further discussion) be extended to research and development activities as well as potentially direct sales from the joint venture to the customer.
