First MTU Series 4000 rolls off production line
MTU Yuchai Power, a joint venture set up between Rolls-Royce Power Systems and the Chinese diesel engine manufacturer Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company, has produced it first MTU Series 4000 engine.
Preparations for the completion of the assembly lines for high-volume series production are in full swing, with the large test bench required for engines with power outputs of up to 3,500 kW and as many as 20 cylinders currently being calibrated.
“With the MTU Series 4000 engine, we have precisely the kind of product the market in China requires,” said Rolls-Royce Power Systems President Andreas Schell.
The joint venture was created by the two companies to achieve long-term success in the growing market for power generation and in the oil and gas industry in China and its neighbouring countries.
After gaining all of the necessary regulatory approvals in 2017, preparations for the start of production have been in full swing – modifications to an existing production building in Yulin in southern China have been completed, production facilities installed and logistics and quality processes agreed on.
Members of the workforce from Yuchai with the required experience have completed training in MTU engine production in Friedrichshafen that will enable them to manufacture MTU engines in Yulin in accordance with the same quality standards that apply in Germany and the USA.
The components needed to produce the engines at MTU Yuchai Power will initially come from Germany.
Suppliers in China capable of delivering parts of the same quality will gradually be added at a later stage.
