Vericor Power Systems (USA) announced it has signed an agreement with MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH (Germany), whereby MTU will package and distribute Vericor's TFT40 and TFT50 aeroderivative marine gas turbines. The TF40 is rated at 4,000 shaft horsepower (shp)/2,983kilowatts (kW) and the TF50 provides 5,100 shp/3,803 kW. Both engines can be incorporated into a variety of flexible propulsion system arrangements.
The compact TF marine gas turbines can be used for stand alone power plants or combined with diesels to form COmbined Diesel And Gas turbine (CODAG), COmbined Diesel Or Gas turbine (CODOG) or COmbined Gas or Gas turbine configurations (COGAG)."We are fortunate to be able to tap into MTU's extensive worldwide distribution network," said Tom Bray, President and General Manager of Vericor Power Systems. "We are confident that this new agreement with MTU will be beneficial to Vericor's marine customers throughout the world." The Vericor/MTU-F distribution agreement will greatly supplement Vericor's direct marketing activities for the TF series gas turbines to worldwide marine customers.
"As one of the world's leading manufacturers of large diesel engines and complete propulsion systems, MTU is now better positioned to offer our customers a greater variety of products and services," said Christian Beiner, Senior Manager Sales & Engineering, Commercial Marine Applications of MTU. "The matching of MTU's diesel engines with Vericor's TF gas turbineswill be ideal for those marine customers looking for the design and operational flexibility of CODAG or CODOG propulsion systems," Beiner added.
