Rolls-Royce expands mtu product range

Highly efficient UPS systems protect micro power grids and safeguard the energy supply for safety-critical installations.

The Rolls-Royce Power Systems division is expanding the portfolio of its product and solution brand mtu to include uninterruptible power supply systems. From 1st February, the flywheel energy storage power supply systems have been marketed as mtu Kinetic PowerPacks. The manufacturer Kinolt taken over in July 2020 has been incorporated in Rolls-Royce Power Systems and is now the competence centre for dynamic uninterruptible power supplies.

For especially critical installations such as data centres, hospitals or industrial plants with sensitive production processes, the mtu Kinetic PowerPacks provide continually high energy quality and eliminate parasitic effects on the power grid. In the event of failure of the (usually public) power grid, the systems reliably safeguard the energy supply without loss of power or voltage in the microgrid.

mtu Kinetic PowerPacks combine the function of an uninterruptible power supply with an emergency power supply using flywheel energy storage and modern diesel engines. The technology offers high quality supply to the consumer grid combined with compact dimensions.

"As compact UPS systems, the mtu Kinetic PowerPacks represent a substantial addition to our range of practice-proven emergency power gensets. We can now offer our customers complete energy security solutions for their safety-critical installations that are extremely economical in terms of both acquisition and operating costs. The sales and service organisation will gradually be incorporated in the Rolls-Royce Power Systems service organisation. As a result, customers will have access to an even closer network," says Andreas Görtz, Vice President Power Generation at Rolls-Royce Power Systems.

Integration into the mtu product range had already been announced in July 2020 when Rolls-Royce took over the Liège (Belgium) based manufacturer Kinolt. Established in 1984 as Euro-Diesel, the company is among the market leaders in uninterruptible, dynamic power supplies. Along with incorporation of its products in the mtu portfolio, the new subsidiary has been given a new name. The business formerly known as Kinolt S.A. has been trading as Rolls-Royce Solutions Liège SA since February 1st, thus following the new brand concept of the Rolls-Royce Power Systems Division.
