MTU Aero Engines AG has launched a new brand to improve transparency in services for gas turbine customers. The new brand is called MTU Power and consolidates the existing gas turbine engineering, manufacturing and aftermarket expertise and services from the business units Aero Solutions, Brush Seals and MTU Maintenance at MTU. The overall aim is to harmonize the extensive experience, in-depth knowledge and creative, never-give-up mentality within the company and bring its services even closer to the customer.
MTU Power was launched today at the Western Turbine Users, Inc. (WTUI) in Palm Springs, California, the largest General Electric aero-derivative LM series conference and gathering worldwide. “The WTUI was an obvious choice for the launch, as it is where users, manufacturers and suppliers come together to discuss technical, operations and maintenance information,” says Michael Schreyögg, Chief Program Officer, MTU Aero Engines AG. “The conference focuses on improving the reliability and economic viability of GE LM series power facilities, something MTU Power’s engine experts work hard to achieve every day.”
MTU has wide-ranging capabilities within the industrial gas turbine sector – from research and development to manufacturing and certification. At the WTUI, the focus is on the aftermarket, where MTU with its brand MTU Power is the largest independent provider for flexible and cost-efficient maintenance, repair and overhaul solutions for GE LM2500, LM5000 and LM6000 turbines and their packages. MTU Power, previously working as part of MTU Maintenance, has carried out more than 1,300 LM shop visits in its over 36-year history. Of all licensed depots, MTU has under its brand MTU Power the widest range of GE LM sub systems in its portfolio (47) and tests under real load conditions.
