and MAN Energy Solutions
have signed an agreement for a strategic partnership that will see MAN’s PBST brand distribute ‘state of the art’ MTU turbochargers.
Andreas Schell, CEO of Rolls-Royce Power Systems, said: “With this cooperation, we are combining our competencies - on the one hand, PBST’s global sales structure for turbochargers and, on the other hand, Rolls-Royce's latest high-efficiency MTU turbocharger technology for high-speed diesel and gas engines.”
The turbochargers developed and produced in-house by Rolls-Royce Power Systems will thus be made available in additional markets. For Rolls-Royce, this creates a new channel for sales in addition to Woodward L'Orange. PBST will include the latest generation of the mtu turbocharger family ZR1 to ZR5 in its product portfolio and will distribute them under the series name HIRO in the future.
The MTU turbochargers are offered on the basis of a modular system for engines in the 400 to 2,500kW power ranges in single- and two-stage versions. Rolls-Royce designs them to meet the specific requirements of various applications such as marine, rail, construction, heavy land vehicles and power supply.
Dr Uwe Lauber, MAN Energy Solutions CEO, said: “The MTU brand is characterised above all by its in-depth know-how in high-speed applications. Thanks to this product expansion, we are now able to offer our customers exactly the right turbocharger for their high-, medium- and low-speed applications — under one roof — via the PBST brand.”
