    Rolls-Royce presents mtu technologies for sustainable propulsion, energy and service solutions at Euronaval

    Rolls-Royce will be presenting its mtu technologies for sustainable propulsion, energy supply, automation and service at the Euronaval marine trade fair in Paris from 18 to 21 October (Hall 6, Stand 568), under the motto ‘Pioneering the journey to Net Zero’, according to the company's release.

    The focus will be on clean and efficient mtu diesel engines that are also suitable for use with sustainable fuels; innovative digital service solutions; and future technologies that the company is currently developing initially for use in commercial shipping and yachts. These include hybrid, methanol and fuel cell systems.

    The mtu AR technology can be used either via glasses or a mobile device (tablet or smartphone). It provides an improved understanding of how systems work, simplifies maintenance, enables self-help even without many years of crew experience and increases safety on board.

    Rolls-Royce Power Systems is evolving from an engine manufacturer to a provider of integrated sustainable solutions from bridge to propeller. The Rolls-Royce business unit is pioneering the development of methanol engines and already has hybrid propulsion systems for marine applications in its portfolio. Fuel cell solutions are soon to follow as another climate-friendly power and propulsion solution. Next year, Rolls-Royce will release its mtu Series 2000 and 4000 marine engines for sustainable fuels. This will enable the reduction of CO2 emissions from existing diesel engines by up to 90 per cent, compared to the use of fossil diesel, without any changes to infrastructure. Future versions of the proven mtu Series 1163 and 8000 large marine engines, which will meet the IMO Tier III emissions directive with mtu SCR systems, are also to be approved for use with sustainable fuels. They were recently unveiled at trade show SMM.

    Rolls-Royce Power Systems’ solution provider strategy also includes novel augmented reality (AR) technology that the company is presenting at Euronaval. It is a response to the challenge faced by many navies of having to keep increasingly complex propulsion systems running with fewer crew during longer deployments. The mtu AR technology acts as a kind of digital assistant: it presents the functioning of propulsion and energy systems in a very clear and easy-to-understand way through a combination of text, animations and videos and can help with maintenance and repair work. For this purpose, the AR system projects information onto physical hardware. During maintenance, for example, it shows which steps have to be carried out how and with which parts and tools are needed, all laid out on the physical hardware. In addition, the AR system can also show where components are located, for example sensors that have triggered an error message, and guide the user there.

    The mtu AR technology can be used either via glasses or a mobile device (tablet or smartphone). It provides an improved understanding of how systems work, simplifies maintenance, enables self-help even without many years of crew experience and increases safety on board.
