More than 100 years ago, Red Deer, Alberta was a quiet prairie town dotted with a few trading posts. Then in the 1950s, major oil and natural gas fields were discovered. The area underwent a dramatic transformation. Today, Red Deer is a modern and thriving city, and the area's oil and gas industry is changing with the times as well.
Rolls-Royce has received its first order in China for Series 4000 MTU engines fulfilling EPA Tier 4 final emissions regulations. Key customer Jereh Petroleum Equipment has ordered 16 engines of type 12V 4000 T95 for new fracturing pump equipment. Jereh plans to sell the equipment which fulfils EPA Tier 4 regulations on the US Oil & Gas market. The contract was signed between Jereh and MTU with MTU's Oil & Gas distributor in China, China Diesel Support Services (CDSS), during the China International Petroleum & Petrochemical Technology and Equipment Exhibition (CIPPE).
Rolls-Royce acquires technology for electrically-assisted charging of off-highway combustion engines
Rolls-Royce has acquired from G+L innotec the exclusive rights of use for a new technology for the electrically-assisted charging of off-highway combustion engines in the power range above 450 kW. The new invention from the development and engineering services provider based in Laupheim in southern Germany is protected by patents and has thus not been available on the market to date. Rolls-Royce plans to offer engines of its MTU brand with this technology as of 2021.
Rolls-Royce will feature the latest technologies from MTU and Rolls-Royce on Booth #2261 for onshore and offshore oil and gas applications at the 2017 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) from May 1 – 4 at NRG Park in Houston, Texas.
