Uplifting Order For MTU Engines

Rolls-Royce Power Systems subsidiary MTU will supply its Series 1000 diesel engine to Japanese crane producer Kato for a new premium rough-terrain crane. It is MTU’s first order from Kato.

Ausgerüstet mit einer SCR-Anlage erreicht der 6-Zylinder-Reihenmotor der MTU-Baureihe 1000 die in Japan ab 2016 geltende neue Emissionsstufe Heisei 26.
Equipped with an SCR unit, the 6-cylinder in-line Series 1000 MTU engine meets the new Heisei 26 emission level requirements which came into force in 2016.

The Kato SL-500Rf Premium rough-terrain lifting crane, which weighs in at 50 tonnes, will be powered by a six-cylinder in-line Series 1000 engine rated 254 kW (340 hp). Equipped with SCR

aftertreatment, the MTU engine meets the new Japanese Heisei 26 emission level requirements which came into force this year, MTU said. Kato is planning to source several hundred units per year for this crane.

“Winning Kato as customer is our first foray into the Japanese crane market,” said Bernd Krüper, head of the Construction & Agriculture business unit at Rolls-Royce Power Systems. “Japan is a high-tech market for industrial vehicles, whilst MTU already has a foothold in applications such as wheel loaders. We’re predicting continued growth for MTU in this segment over the next few years.”

With an overall width of 2.75 m, the SL-500Rf Premium crane can be driven on Japanese roads. The crane will be launched on the Japanese market beginning in July.
