Bergen Engines Now A Tognum Subsidiary
Norwegian engine manufacturer Bergen Engines AS has become part of the Tognum Group. Following the acquisition of Tognum AG by the joint venture of Rolls-Royce plc. and Daimler AG, the former Rolls-Royce subsidiary Bergen Engines was merged into the Tognum Group. With that Tognum, the propulsion and power solution specialist, adds medium-speed diesel and gas engines with power outputs up to 10 MW to its engine portfolio.
Tognum supplies high-speed diesel and gas engines carrying the MTU brand with power ranges of 75 to 10,000 kW and 100 to 2150 kW respectively. The Bergen engine portfolio comprises medium-speed units for marine and power generation applications. The diesel engines deliver 1800 to 8000 kW and the gas engines are built for 1400 to 9700 kW output.
“By formally contributing Bergen Engines AS to Tognum today, we are starting the next phase of our joint activities. This is an important milestone and positive for both customers and employees as this enables us to combine the medium- and high-speed portfolios under one roof,” said John Paterson, chairman of the supervisory board of Tognum AG.
