The hybrid propulsion systems encompass MTU’s Series 2000 and 4000 internal combustion engines, electric propulsion models, transmission systems, batteries, monitoring and control systems and other electronic components. “Our customers receive integrated systems with an appropriate choice of propulsion involves the easy to operate,” says Denise Kurtulus. “This is something we are quite capable of doing as a result of decades of experience in system integration and with the aid of our Blue Vision New Generation Hybrid automation system,” Kurtulus adds.
MTU SmartBridge – bridge solutions for series production yachts and mega yachts
Rolls-Royce is now offering integrated bridge systems – MTU SmartBridge – for both series production yachts and mega yachts. All essential subsystems on the vessel for monitoring, control and navigation are integrated into a platform that provides a single point of access to all information that is crucial to the safe and efficient operation of the vessel. This relates primarily to the propulsion system, the ship automation and control system, the power management system, in addition to navigation and communication systems. Additional digital features, such as one-touch documentation, the integration into the MTU Go! platform and the access to MTU’s global service network improve the performance of the vessel as a whole and enhance the cruising experience.
New Yacht Competence Centre in La Spezia
In October of this year, Rolls-Royce will be opening a new Yacht Competence Centre in La Spezia (Italy), with experts on MTU propulsion systems available to provide highly professional and detailed advice to shipyards and the project teams of yacht owners when fitting out.
