ZF Marine and Rolls-Royce Power Systems — the parent company of MTU — have signed a collaboration agreement, giving the longtime partners a new foundation for advancing technology in the marine industry.

“Precisely matched combinations of MTU engines from Rolls-Royce Power Systems and marine transmissions from ZF have been the preferred choice on many commercial ships and yachts for a long time,” the companies stated in a press release. “From now on, the two companies will be exchanging information and knowledge relating to the development of new technologies and products more intensively than ever.”

Look for these technological advances: The companies expect to focus their partnership on integrated systems, hybrid propulsion and digitally networked solutions.
