500 MTU engines: marine and power generation applications
First deliveries began in the end of 2019. The agreements come on the heels of another major order from China which Rolls-Royce announced in the past week: In the biggest deal for MTU gas gensets ever, VPower has ordered more than 200 MTU Series 4000 natural gas gensets with a total power output of 430 MW.
«We are proud that our esteemed Chinese partners put their trust in our marine propulsion and power generation solutions. These agreements are a result of our efforts to grow strong partnerships in China and reflect the growing role our MTU products play in fulfilling the needs of the Chinese market», said Tobias Ostermaier, President Greater China at Rolls-Royce Power Systems.
