Rolls-Royce has announced that it will showcase high and medium speed diesel and gas gensets in the 24 kWe to 9,400 kWe range at the ongoing Middle East Electricity (MEE) 2015 in Dubai
Matthias Vogel, head of power generation business at Rolls-Royce Power Systems, said, “We see great market potential in the Middle East for our extensive range of power generation products. That is why we have now strengthened our on-site presence with a new regional subsidiary based in Dubai.”
MTU Onsite Energy and Bergen Engines are part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems within the Land & Sea division of Rolls-Royce.
“MTU Middle East support distributors and business partners of MTU, MTU Onsite Energy and Bergen Engines in 21 countries in MENA and the Rolls-Royce medium-speed power generation solutions are supplied by Bergen Engines,” added Vogel.
At MEE 2015, MTU Onsite Energy will be presenting its range of high-speed diesel gensets up to 3,250 kWe and gas engine systems up to 2,530 kWe. “MTU Onsite Energy’s stand will display a diesel genset based on a new generation of MTU Series 2000 engines. Offering common rail technology and delivering up to 1,120 kWe, the new genset is quieter, more efficient and more compact than units previously available. Its power range is also around 12 per cent greater than that of its predecessor,” noted Vogel.
The head of power generation business said that Bergen Engines’ product range will also be showcased for the first time at MEE 2015. “The stand will include a model of a generator set based on a 20-cylinder B35:40 gas engine. Power generation systems based on these gensets are currently in operation, for example, in power plants in Indonesia and Tanzania. Diesel and gas gensets from Bergen Engines cover a power range from 3,700 kWe to 9,400 kWe with complete electricity generation systems offering total supply capabilities in excess of 200 MWe,” he added.
Rolls-Royce is headquartered in the UK and employs more than 54,000 people in 50 countries. The company is the world’s second-largest maker of aircraft engines and also has major businesses in the marine propulsion and energy sectors.
