Marine – Power systems’ strategic Pillar

MTU engines from Rolls-Royce can be found in service in almost every country around the globe and are very strongly represented in numerous marine applications – from high-speed ferries to wind farm supply ships and mega-yachts.  With its Green and High-Tech program, Rolls-Royce Power Systems is a driver of the energy turnaround in the maritime industry, providing ever-cleaner engines equipped with hybrid propulsion and exhaust aftertreatment and using digitalization to enable more efficient deployment of systems. Hence the company is making a major contribution to the decarbonization of shipping. Several projects are also underway in which MTU research engineers are examining which are the most efficient and economic fuels and how the engines they power need to be  configured.  Hence Rolls-Royce is already accomplishing its mission of re-branding MTU, also as a supplier of integrated, eco-friendly marine propulsion solutions. In the future, customers will come to MTU for the holistic solution they need for their individual profile: a propulsion system that optimally meets the full spectrum of their requirements, including on-board power, automation and warranted availability.
