Rolls-Royce Delivers 5,555th mtu Engine to Bell Equipment
Rolls-Royce recently delivered the 5,555th mtu engine of Series 1000, 1300 and 1500 to articulated dump truck manufacturer and construction equipment manufacturer Bell Equipment.
To mark the occasion, Dr. Lei Berners-Wu, vice president Global Industrial at Rolls-Royce’s Power Systems business unit, symbolically presented a special engine piston, the so-called “Piston of Honour”, to Leon Goosen, CEO of Bell Equipment. The award was presented last October at Bauma in Munich, Germany.
“It goes without saying that we are extremely proud of our long and successful association with the Rolls-Royce company and are pleased to have reached this milestone together. For many years we, and our customers, have been won over by the performance and reliability of the mtu brand of engines. As a company that has a passion for innovation and a drive to lead development, we also appreciate the efforts made by Rolls-Royce to make the mtu brand of engines compatible with sustainable fuels. This speaks to our own goals of reducing the environmental footprint of our trucks and we look forward to what the future holds in this regard,” said Mr. Goosen.
“With the ‘Piston of Honour’, we bring a token of appreciation to Bell Equipment and thank them for their long-standing partnership,” said Dr. Berners-Wu. “Bell Equipment is one of our most important customers in the field of construction equipment, industrial applications and agriculture. This is a partnership and collaboration that we intend to maintain and expand in the future.”
Rolls-Royce and Bell Equipment have enjoyed a close business relationship since 1998. Bell Equipment is one of Rolls-Royce’s largest OEM customers in the global C&I sector, particularly in the African market. The majority family-owned company was founded in 1954 and produces, markets and exports a large number of different material handling machines worldwide. Bell Equipment employs around 3,700 people. The supplied mtu engines are installed in Bell Equipment’s complete range of E-series articulated dump trucks, among others.
