(MENAFN- KNN India) Rolls Royce Solutions agrees for localisation of MTU S4000 marine engines in India

Kolkata, Jan 30 (KNN) Giving a push to the 'Make in India' initiative', Rolls Royce Solutions has signed a MoU with Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE) Ltd for locally producing high-quality marine diesel engines.

The German company has assented to cooperate with GRSE in the licence production and localisation of the technologically advanced MTU S4000 governmental marine engines.

These engines, with a power output of 746-4,300 KW, are compact, reliable, and easy to maintain.

They are used for fast patrol vessels, interceptor boats, and fast attack crafts built by GRSE and other shipyards around the country.

Up to now, these engines are imported, bringing down the indigenous content of these classes of vessels built at Indian shipyards.

MTU is a solution brand of Power Systems, a fully-owned subsidiary of Rolls Royce plc.

It is likely that the manufacture of these engines in India would also provide a great opportunity to local industry, particularly MSMEs involved in the manufacture of components and spares.

The pact deals with the transfer of technology
related to engine assembly, painting, parts sourcing, and after-sales service for these engines that are to be assembled at GRSE's diesel engine plant
in Ranchi.
