Rolls-Royce and VPower Group have signed a deal for the supply of high-efficiency gas power generation equipment of the MTU brand.
Rolls-Royce said on Thursday that the final agreement recently inked in Hong Kong, entailed the supply over 200 MTU Series 4000 natural gas gen-sets with a total power output of 430 MW, starting October 2019.
The fleet will be deployed to support VPower Group’s key business streams of LNG-to-power, flexible generation, distributed, and other fast track power solutions globally.
Earnest Cheung, VPower Group COO, said: “As a leader in decentralized power generation, we place great importance in product safety, efficiency, and reliability. We are happy to strengthen our business cooperation with Rolls-Royce and look forward to stepping up our strategic relationship in the years to come.”
Andreas Schell, Rolls-Royce Power Systems CEO, added: “We are pleased to take our long-term partnership with VPower Group to a whole new level by signing the largest single order for MTU gas gen-sets in our company history.”
According to the company, the relationship between Rolls-Royce and VPower Group dates back to 2008. Today, VPower Group is an owner and operator of MTU power generation systems, with a wide range of applications in China and other countries.
Since 2014, VPower Group has been using MTU gas gen-sets from Rolls-Royce to strengthen its leadership in Myanmar’s fast track power segment. This has led to VPower’s recent winning of a mega-sized LNG-to-power tender issued by Electric Power Generation Enterprise (EPGE), Ministry of Electricity and Energy of the Government of Myanmar.
