MTU launches speed-based power

Nov 9, 2014 by Guest Writer

Germany-based Rolls-Royce launched its new MTU Series 2000 M96 yacht engine generation, which complies with the U.S. EPA’s Tier 3 regulations. The MTU brand is owned by Rolls-Royce Power Systems, part of the Marine and Industrial Power Systems division at Rolls-Royce.

Series 2000 engines deliver up to 1,940 kW and are suited to yachts where the emphasis is on speed. Sanlorenzo’s new 37m SL118 and its new SD 112 semi-displacement vessel are both powered by Series 2000 units from MTU.
