MTU Detroit Diesel Opens in New Orleans

Wednesday, November 10, 2010
MTU Detroit Diesel, a Tognum Group subsidiary, opened a new Gulf Coast Sales and Operations center in St. Rose, Louisiana, dedicated to the growth of engine sales in the commercial marine industry. The center also houses parts and serves as a logistics hub for MTU’s marine defense customers. The nearly 8,000-square-foot facility is located in the St. James Industrial Park just west of New Orleans.
"MTU is one of the world’s major providers of diesel engines and propulsion systems for ships, ferries, tugs, river push boats and offshore supply vessels,” says Jeff Sherman, marine sales manager for MTU Detroit Diesel. “This new location puts us closer to both new and current customers in the Gulf of Mexico and Inland Rivers.”
 The new facility is in addition to a network of 25 MTU distributors and a dedicated marine service center near Alameda, California. MTU’s marine power solutions include the Series 60, Series 2000 and Series 4000 Iron Men engines, specifically designed to meet the unique demands of workboats. For the higher power needs of commercial and military vessels such as the U.S. Navy Littoral Combat Ship or U.S. Coast Guard National Security Cutter, MTU offers its Series 8000 and Series 1163 engines. The MTU marine product line up covers a power range from 350 to 12,200 bhp with industry-leading durability, fuel efficiency, low cost operation and EPA emissions compliance. MTU also offers complete marine control systems.
