Rolls-Royce has received its first order for large industrial diesel engines from a customer in China. The order is for Series 4000 MTU engines, which meet the Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. Key customer Jereh Petroleum Equipment has ordered 16 of the MTU 12V 4000 T95 diesels for industrial purposes. The company intends to sell the equipment which fulfils EPA Tier 4 regulations on the US market. The contract was signed between Jereh and MTU with MTU’s Oil & Gas distributor in China, China Diesel Support Services (CDSS). This order represents a breakthrough for Rolls-Royce in China. The firm says that it is confident in MTU’s leading ultra-low emissions engine technology. The 12V 4000 T95 is part of MTU’s latest Series 4000 engine platform, which meets Tier 4 final emissions standards without exhaust aftertreatment. The engine is equipped with the latest MTU technology including integrated cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and two-stage turbocharging. Combined with MTU’s refined fourth-generation common rail injection system, the Series 4000 reduces emissions while improving performance.
