Rolls-Royce Power Systems Division opened a Remanufacturing and Overhaul Center Overhaul Center in Graniteville, S.C., to service customers operating mtu Series 2000, Series 4000, and Detroit Diesel 2-Cycle engines and components. The 69,000-sq.ft., “low double-digit million dollar investment” operation also will perform rework service for internal and external customers of Rolls-Royce in the U.S., bringing formerly outsourced workshop and warehouse operations in-house.
The new location adjoins an existing manufacturing operation for Rolls-Royce Power Systems in Graniteville.
According to an announcement, the new center will follow engine system remanufacturing and overhaul programs established at other Rolls-Royce locations, such as one in Magdeburg, Germany. The process fully disassembles, cleans, and inspects engines and components, and then reassembles them using new or remanufactured parts to replace any outdated, worn, or damaged components.
Rolls-Royce Power Systems is a business of Rolls-Royce Holdings that manufactures and services industrial power systems from multiple legacy brands, principally from the predecessor company MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH, which was a subsidiary of DaimlerChrysler Powersystems Off-Highway.
“We have more than 150,000 engines in the field and our service business is growing,” according to Dr. Jörg Stratmann, CEO, Rolls-Royce Power Systems. “Service is not just maintenance and repair, but also upgrades, remanufacturing, and digital services for predictive maintenance.”
Stratmann added that the Remanufacturing and Overhaul Center “will be a main pillar for serving our customers in the Americas.”
