During the second China International Import Expo (CIIE) in Shanghai, Rolls-Royce signed agreements for the delivery of more than 500 MTU engines and systems for power generation and marine applications.
A total of five documents were signed between Rolls-Royce’s Power System business units and Cooltech, EPG, SUMEC Machinery & Electric Co Ltd, Tellhow and AFAI Southern Shipyard.
These cover the delivery of Series 4000 MTU engines that will be partly manufactured by MTU Yuchai Power, the joint venture of Rolls-Royce Power Systems and the Chinese diesel engine manufacturer Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Co.
The first deliveries are to begin by the end of 2019.
These agreements were signed a week after another major order from China. In the biggest deal for MTU gas gen-sets ever, VPower ordered more than 200 MTU Series 4000 units with a total power output of 430MW.
Tobias Ostermaier, president of Rolls-Royce Power Systems for Greater China (www.rolls-royce.com
), said: “These agreements are a result of our efforts to grow strong partnerships in China, and they reflect the growing role our MTU products play in fulfilling the needs of the Chinese market.
“They also prove the importance of our decision to strengthen our footprint in China.”
