Rolls-Royce and Sanlorenzo expand cooperation

On the occasion of the Monaco Yacht Show, Rolls-Royce and Sanlorenzo have signed a new framework agreement. According to the agreement, [ds_preview]Rolls-Royce will not only supply main propulsion systems to the yacht builder, but also its new ship automation system.

Rolls-Royce and Sanlorenzo have agreed to expand their cooperation. As part of the new partnership, Rolls-Royce’s Power Systems division will become one of the leading suppliers to Sanlorenzo over the next three years. The Friedrichshafen-based company will supply its 10V, 12V and 16V-2000 mtu yacht engines as the main propulsion system for defined SL yachts. Sanlorenzo will also be one of the first manufacturers to equip a superyacht with the new fully integrated mtu NautIQ Bridge solution.

“In recent years, we have made great efforts to become a provider of integrated and sustainable solutions,” said Denise Kurtulus, Vice President Global Marine at Rolls-Royce Power Systems, “The new framework agreement with our partner Sanlorenzo is a great confirmation of this strategy: not only will we continue to supply our proven Series 2000 engines, whose performance and efficiency are industry-leading, but also complete propulsion and ship management solutions from the bridge to the propeller.”

New automation system

According to Rolls-Royce, mtuNautIQ Bridge was developed in collaboration with yacht specialist Team Italia and integrates all key vessel control, monitoring and navigation subsystems, wherever they are located on board, into a single platform. The functionalities enable comprehensive and convenient management of the yacht’s propulsion, automation, navigation and communication systems. By providing all relevant information to the captain in a single location, “the new bridge solution improves both usability and operational safety, enhancing the overall performance of the vessel”. The mtu NautIQ product family has been specifically designed for newbuilds and easy retrofitting into existing vessels, the company says.
