Kirloskar Oil Engines ties up with Rolls-Royce to build nuke plant gensets

"Rolls-Royce and engine and genset manufacturer Kirloskar Oil Engines have signed a declaration of intent for exclusive cooperation on the building and commissioning of emergency gensets for nuclear power plants in India," a release issued here said.

Under the arrangement, Rolls-Royce will supply MTU engines and key components, and take responsibility for basic engineering and genset configuration, while Kirloskar Oil Engines, as a main contractor to Nuclear Power Corporation of India (NPCIL), will integrate the systems and assemble and test the gensets on site in the country. "Working together with KOEL, we see good chances of gaining entry into the emergency genset market for nuclear power stations in India,"

Rolls-Royce Power Systems Chief Sales Officer Michael Haidinger said. India is putting its focus on nuclear power to help meet its long-term energy requirements.
