STX Engine Co. To Package Rolls-Royce Gas Turbine Gen-Sets
In a move which Rolls-Royce hopes will bolster its position in Asian markets the company has signed an agreement with Korea-based STX Engine Co. Ltd.
In the deal, STX will become a packager of Rolls-Royce industrial gas turbine generating sets in the Asia Pacific region. The move underpins the existing links between the two companies, which stretch back more than a decade.
According to Rolls-Royce the agreement will provide an “enhanced route to market” for its latest industrial gas turbine, the RB211- H63 which was unveiled by the company in June, and also the Trent 60 gas turbine.
“This agreement will enable Rolls-Royce to better serve the growing demand for electrical power generation technology and will further strengthen our position in important Asian markets,” said Charles Athanasia, Rolls-Royce executive vice president of Power Generation – Energy.
