Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Rolls-Royce AG is to supply MTU series 106 engines to Polish vehicle manufacturer Jelcz beginning this year.
The 500 engines will power Jelcz's four-wheel drive 442.32 all-terrain vehicles for the Polish Army, Rolls-Royce said. Nine hundred of the series 106 engines are already powering vehicles in operation with Poland's Army.
"We are delighted at having succeeded, once again, in convincing Jelcz of the benefits of MTU engines," Knut Müller, head of Marine and Government Business at MTU, said in a press release. "The fact that Jelcz has now ordered a total of 1,400 of our engines for its vehicles is proof positive of the superb, close collaboration between our two companies."
Rolls-Royce said its type 6R 106 TD21 is a six-cylinder engine. It features high-power density and simplicity of maintenance. It is also unaffected by electro-magnetic impulses and can run on aviation fuel if necesary.
