Rolls-Royce va fournir la motorisation des futures frégates allemandes

Damen Naval et l’unité commerciale Power Systems de Rolls-Royce ont signé un contrat pour la livraison de groupes électrogènes diesel de 16 mtu, pour les quatre nouvelles frégates F126 de la marine allemande

Although Damen and Rolls-Royce, whose business unit Power Systems is based in Friedrichshafen, Germany, have a long-standing cooperation in shipbuilding, this is the first time a contract has been awarded for mtu naval diesel generator sets. According to Managing Director of Damen Naval, Hein van Ameijden, the choice was based on Rolls-Royce’s high-end naval oriented mtu solutions and experience on the high-end naval market. “We are delighted to announce the news of this contract and the fact we have found another German partner for this prestigious and important project for the Bundeswehr. We look forward to working with Rolls-Royce and its mtu solutions again.”
