Rolls-Royce and Overmarine are continuing their successful cooperation and will move into the future together with new technologies in the coming years, with Rolls-Royce supplying Overmarine with mtu Series 2000 engines.

Options to supply mtu hybrid propulsion and the state-of-the-art mtu NautIQ Bridge integrated bridge solution are part of the new framework agreement, which will run from 2022-24. The delivery of an emission-free mtu fuel cell system is also a possibility for the future. The contract provides for the delivery of more than 60 mtu engines, including IMO III emissions directive-compliant units  with exhaust aftertreatment.

Maurizio Balducci, CEO Overmarine, said: “At Overmarine, we have been setting new standards for decades with our agile, sporty and versatile yachts. In doing so, we can always count on the power, efficiency and reliability of mtu engines. We look forward to furthering this partnership with the latest mtu products."

Denise Kurtulus, VP Global Marine, Rolls-Royce Power Systems, said: “We are proud to have once again convinced Overmarine of our solutions. In the coming years, the aspect of sustainability and climate protection will certainly become even more important in the yachting industry. To this end, we are already available to Overmarine and the entire yacht industry as a propulsion partner with climate-friendly solutions.”

 Rolls-Royce’s Power Systems division with its mtu solution brand is currently transforming itself from an engine manufacturer to a provider of integrated sustainable propulsion and energy solutions. With the sustainability programme 'Net Zero at Power Systems', Power Systems considers it is taking concrete steps towards climate-neutral solutions. For example, from 2023, the company will certify its Series 2000 and 4000 engines for sustainable fuels such as e-diesel and second-generation biofuels, thus enabling climate-neutral mobility in all applications. In addition to the use of sustainable fuels, the company is building on new technologies such as CO2-free fuel cell sys
