Rolls Supplying Gen-sets For Navy

By Jack Burke26 November 2018

Rolls-Royce will supply 18 MTU Series 4000 diesel generator sets to BAE Systems as part of project designed to increase the resilience of the power and propulsion system in all six Type 45 destroyers for the British navy.

The two existing diesel gensets are to be replaced by three MTU gensets per vessel. The three MTUgensets will complement two existing Rolls-Royce WR21 gas turbines also supplying power to the electric propulsion system.
“We are delighted to have convinced our partners BAE Systems and the Royal Navy once again of the outstanding merits of our Series 4000 gensets and engines,” said Knut Müller, head of MTU’s Marine & Government Business. “I am convinced the Royal Navy will benefit from this long-term – also thanks to the simplified logistics when it comes to maintaining our engines.”
