Rolls-Royce has recently signed some important agreements to delivery almost 1000 MTU products, between engines and gensets for power generation and mining applications, to China. The agreements were signed at Chinese import conference CIIE, held in Shanghai, and strengthen the presence of MTU solutions in the Asian country. In fact, we’d already talked about 500 more MTU engines headed to China only last year.
The above-mentioned agreements include MTU Series 2000 and 4000 engines (here, a post about the 3000th Series 4000 gas engine sold in Myanmar).
1000 MTU products headed to China
Tobias Ostermaier, President Greater China at Rolls-Royce Power Systems, said: «China is our most important growth market and our ambition is to be in China for China. In recent years, we have turned into a provider of integrated solutions for Chinese business partners: we have formed multiple joint ventures and established a Customer Care Center as well as a Tech Center in-country to be closer to customers and better satisfy their needs. It’s great to see these efforts bearing fruit with the frame agreements and strategic cooperation agreements we signed at CIIE. We are very grateful for the trust and confidence our customers put in our products and solutions».
3 MTU gas and diesel systems in Jakarta
Ideally travelling South from China, Rolls-Royce has also delivered 3 MTU gas and diesel systems for SpaceDC data centre in Jakarta. The latter is the first Indonesian green focused data centre facility. In particular, the diesel systems, which secure the emergency power supply of the data centre, comprise two MTU 20V4000 DS3300 gensets in a 40 ft container with SCR systems to reduce emissions.
A 20-cylinder MTU Series 4000L64 FNER gas genset in a 40 ft container is installed as CHP application with a total efficiency of above 90 percent. The system will provide baseload electricity and cooling via an absorption chiller utilizing the exhaust gas heat to provide cooling. The MTU gas systems offer best in class power density and have been designed specifically to withstand hot and humid conditions. This is especially crucial for the facility in Jakarta where the climate is tropical almost year-round.
