Tognum renames to Rolls-Royce

ADVERTISEMENT

Germany-based Tognum AG has changed its name to Rolls-Royce Power Systems AG.



Since March 2013, the specialist for large engines, propulsion systems and distributed energy systems has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Rolls-Royce plc and Daimler AG, each of which own half the company.

The group of companies with MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH as the core company has been consolidated in the Rolls-Royce Group’s results since the beginning of 2013. Regional companies will also operate with immediate effect under a new name: Michigan-based Tognum America will now operate as MTU America, and Singapore-based Tognum Asia Pte Ltd will operate under MTU Asia Pte Ltd.



The product portfolio includes MTU brand high-speed engines and propulsion systems for ships, for heavy land, rail and defence vehicles, and for the oil and gas industry. Under the MTU Onsite Energy brand, the company markets diesel gensets for emergency, base load and peak load applications, in addition to cogeneration plants for the generation of combined heat and power based on gas engines or gas turbines. The Norwegian subsidiary Bergen Engines manufactures medium-speed engines for marine and power generation applications. L’Orange rounds off the portfolio with fuel injection systems for large engines.



In related news, Rolls-Royce ended talks to buy Warsila’s marine division.
