The two companies join forces to meet two orders for 16 MTU engines and Rolls Royce propellor-rudder systems

The first delivery comprises twelve MTU 16V 4000 M63 engines destined for Camorim, the Brazilian shipping company. Twin MTU engines will be used to power Rolls-Royce propeller-rudder systems on a total of six tug boats.

Each engine in this order delivers power of 2,000kW, and its value lies at some three million euros to Tognum. The tug vessels will mainly be used in offshore oil production operations carried out by Petrobas, the petroleum producer in Rio de Janeiro/Macae.

The second order is from Fjellstrand, the Norwegian shipyard. Four marine gensets based on MTU 16V 4000 M23S engines, each with a power output of 1,840kW, will be used to propel a multi-purpose offshore vessel operated by Norside Supporter AS. The engines back up the Rolls-Royce propellers and automation system.  The order is worth around two million euros to Tognum.  


“Winning these first orders confirms that cooperation with our new majority shareholders Rolls-Royce and Daimler is on the right track,” explained Joachim Coers, CEO of Tognum AG.

Engine dispatch for both orders is scheduled for the end of 2012.
