Rolls-Royce Power Systems has
signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Sumec, a long-term partner in
the power generation sector, covering over 200 mtu
engines and systems.
The LOI, signed at the fifth China International
Import Expo (CIIE) in Shanghai earlier this month, also includes loose engines with
a mix of Series 4000 and Series 2000 engines, partly manufactured
by MTU Yuchai Power – the joint venture between
Rolls-Royce and Guangxi Yuchai Machinery, locally
assembled diesel systems, as well as gas systems and dynamic UPS.
The engines and systems will be used primarily for market segments
including but not limited to telecommunications, semiconductor,
data center and biogas application.
Sumec signs LOI with Rolls-Royce for 200 mtu engines and systems
Xiaosong, Vice Chairman of Sumec M&E, said, “Over the past 40
years, Sumec has demonstrated a continued commitment to
high-quality development, innovation, stability and sustainable
development. Stable backup power supply is crucial for us to
maintain our operational excellence. Rolls-Royce has been
supplying mtu engines that well support our business security and
continuity. We look forward to bringing our cooperation to a new
level, and hope to work together with Rolls-Royce to step into new
industries and sustainable solutions.”
The Chinese market presents tremendous
opportunities for the business growth of Rolls-Royce’s Power
Systems business unit. Expanding market
share and establishing and deepening partnerships in China are
to the success of the company’s PS 2030 strategy, under which Rolls-Royce
Power Systems is evolving from an engine manufacturer to a
provider of integrated sustainable solutions.
Rolls-Royce has been
producing mtu engines in China since 2006 and formed joint
ventures with Chinese manufacturers to continue localizing its
footprint over the years.
Valente, President, Rolls-Royce Solutions Greater China, said, “The fact that Sumec puts its trust
in our mtu solutions for such a wide range of industries makes us
proud. And it proves that our investments, focus on building
long-term partnerships in China and our ‘local-for-local’ approach
for localization are the right strategy, benefitting both
Rolls-Royce and our Chinese partners. China is the most important
growth market for us, as a provider of integrated solutions for
power and propulsion, we strive to support the country’s economic
growth and infrastructure development. We also look forward to supporting China’s journey towards decarbonisation with our
