Damen Naval and Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems have entered into an agreement to deliver 16 MTU diesel generator sets for the four new F126 frigates slated for the German Navy.

The onboard power of each F126 vessel will be provided by four MTU Series 4000 variable-speed gensets. These gensets meet the requirements of the IMO III emissions directive thanks to state-of-the-art selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems.

Due to their variable speed capability, the engines can be operated efficiently, saving fuel and reducing maintenance.

The agreement also includes an integrated logistics support (ILS) package.
