MTU Onsite Energy to Supply 160 Gensets to VPower Group


MTU Onsite Energy, a division of Rolls-Royce Power Systems, has contracted to supply 160 gas-powered gensets to VPower Group, a company with expertise in decentralized power generation.  The deal allows VPower to secure production capacity within MTU, making it possible to meet customer demand on short notice. The gensets will be based on MTU’s 16V 4000 L32 units, each with an output of 1,560 kW.

In 2014, the two companies teamed up to deliver 32 natural gas-powered gensets to Myanmar Electric Power Enterprise (MEPE), with another 64 units following in 2015. The gas-powered MEPE is directly tied to Myanmar’s power grid and stabilizes the country’s domestic power supply.

Rolls-Royce also signed an additional “strategic agreement” with VPower that strengthens the companies’ relationship in power generation markets across China and much of Asia.
