Rolls-Royce has set up MTU Middle East as a new regional sales and service subsidiary with head office in Dubai that will support distributors and business partners of MTU, MTU Onsite Energy and Bergen Engines. "With our new sales and service centre in Dubai, we are seeking to leverage the huge potential that markets in the Middle East and North Africa carry, and to drive forward our business there in an even more targeted way," said Dr Michael Haidinger, chief sales officer at Rolls-Royce Power Systems.
The subsidiary has its own MTU service technicians and warehouse with spare parts store. It will cater to 21 countries in the Middle East and North Africa. In this region, high-speed and medium-speed large diesel and gas engines, drive systems and on-site power generation systems are mainly deployed in electrical power generation, the oil and gas industry, and to drive trains and agricultural machinery.
