Under the terms of the agreement, Rolls-Royce will supply more than 200 MTU Series 4000 natural gas gensets, with a total power output of 430 MW, starting October 2019. The fleet will be deployed to support VPower Group’s key business streams of LNG-to-power, flexible generation, distributed and other fast track power solutions globally.
Earnest Cheung, VPower Group, Chief Commercial Officer, said: “As a leader in decentralised power generation, we place great importance in product safety, efficiency and reliability. We are happy to strengthen our business cooperation with Rolls-Royce and look forward to stepping up our strategic relationship in the years to come.”
Andreas Schell, Rolls-Royce Power Systems, Chief Executive Officer, added: “We are pleased to take our long-term partnership with VPower Group to a whole new level by signing the largest single order for MTU gas gensets in our company history. This is another vote of confidence from a much-valued customer, and a demonstration of our growing success in the increasingly important decentralised power generation markets.”
Since 2014, VPower Group has been using MTU gas gensets from Rolls-Royce to strengthen its leadership in Myanmar’s fast track power segment. This has led to VPower’s recent winning of a mega sized LNG-to-power tender issued by Electric Power Generation Enterprise (EPGE), Ministry of Electricity and Energy of the Government of Myanmar. Alongside China National Technology Import and Export Corp. (CNTIC), VPower Group’s long-term EPC partner as consortium party, the consortium will deliver power supply to millions of households in Myanmar before the summer peaks of 2020 using MTU gensets running on clean gas fuel.
