Rolls-Royce acquires technology for electrically-assisted charging of off-highway combustion engines
Rolls-Royce has acquired from G+L innotec the exclusive rights of use for a new technology for the electrically-assisted charging of off-highway combustion engines in the power range above 450 kW. The new invention from the development and engineering services provider based in Laupheim in southern Germany is protected by patents and has thus not been available on the market to date. Rolls-Royce plans to offer engines of its MTU brand with this technology as of 2021.
For the first time, Rolls-Royce will be supplying MTU engines for use in excavators, having won an order from British construction equipment manufacturer JCB. MTU’s Series 1000 engines are compliant with EU-Stage IV and EPA Tier 4f emissions legislation and are to be used to power new excavators in JCB’s JS 300, JS 330 and JS 370 series. The construction machinery manufacturer is choosing MTU for its excavators for the first time. The MTU brand is part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems.
Rolls-Royce will be presenting mobile and stationary diesel gensets from MTU Onsite Energy at Bauma. They are ideally suited to the generation of electric power on construction sites. The Bauma trade fair for construction machinery takes place from April 11 to 17 in Munich. On stand 314 in Hall A4, the company will also be presenting MTU engines for construction site vehicles. The MTU Onsite Energy and MTU brands are part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems.
