ROLLS-ROYCE AND MAN AGREE TURBOCHARGER PARTNERSHIP

ROLLS-ROYCE AND MAN AGREE TURBOCHARGER PARTNERSHIP

Thursday, June 24, 2021 

Rolls-Royce and MAN Energy Solutions have signed an agreement for a strategic partnership that will see MAN's PBST brand distribute mtu turbochargers made by the Rolls-Royce Power Systems company.

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.

 CEO Rolls-Royce Power Systems Andreas Schell 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 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," says Dr Uwe Lauber, CEO MAN Energy Solutions.

The mtu turbochargers are offered on the basis of a modular system for engines in the 400kW to 2,500kW power ranges in single- and two-stage versions. Rolls-Royce designs them to meet the specific requirements of various applications including marine.

"Advanced turbocharging helps engines achieve low fuel consumption and high power over a wide speed range. It is an important building block for meeting increasingly stringent emission requirements in the future - without compromising engine performance or efficiency," said Dr Otto Preiss, CTO and COO of Rolls-Royce Power Systems. "With the aim of offering new propulsion and energy solutions for a climate-neutral future, we are also currently working on electrically assisted turbochargers for greater agility and lower fuel consumption, as well as on turbocharger concepts for fuel cells."
