Rolls-Royce Testing capability for mtu Series 4000 engines

Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems is strengthening its research and development (R&D) capabilities in China with a new test bench for mtu engines at the company’s location in Suzhou. The R&D test bench can accommodate mtu engines with a power output of up to 3,600 kW and will be used to test parts, engines and complete systems for power generation and industrial applications.

The new R&D test bench in Suzhou will first be used for test runs of gensets based on mtu 16V 4000 engines, starting in 2022. It is suitable for testing a wide range of versions of the versatile Series 4000 engine which is also celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. A further upgrade of the test bench is planned for 2022: The capabilities will be extended to testing mtu Series 2000 engines as well.

The new mtu gas engines of the 4000 series are already powering two ferries of the Dutch shipping company Doeksen in the specially protected Wadden Sea. Die neuen mtu-Gasmotoren der Baureihe 4000 treiben bereits zwei Fähren der niederländischen Reederei Doeksen im besonders geschützten Wattenmeer an.
