MTU engines to be assembled in India

MTU and GRSE have agreed the final assembly of MTU Series 4000 engines in India. Rear Admiral (ret.) V K Saxena, chairman and managing Director at GRSE (left), and Knut Müller, head of Marine and Government Business at MTU, signed the agreement.

MTU, a Rolls-Royce Power Systems subsidiary based in Friedrichshafen, has a long-standing relationship with GRSE. In addition to assembly of the 12V and 16V 4000 M90 engines with rated power of 2.04 MW and 2.72 MW respectively, the German company will have an option for the local production of parts in the future and will also transfer technology relating to assembly, testing and painting.
GRSE has been assembling MTU Series 4000 engines at its diesel engine plant in Ranchi since 2004 but the work on the latest MTU engines for the Indian Navy is more complex. The project falls in line with the Indian Government’s bid to boost the country’s economy through its “Make in India” campaign, notably for all naval and land defence projects. GRSE is part of the Indian Ministry of Defence as a Defense Public Sector Unit.
Speaking for MTU, Praveen Mohan, the company’s CEO in India, said: “We are delighted to continue and deepen our cooperation with GRSE. India is one of the most important growth markets for MTU. We look forward to making further engines in India.”

Ranchi-based Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers (GRSE) is to undertake the final assembly of MTU Series 4000 engines intended for a series of naval vessels to be built by the Indian company.
