Tognum Group company MTU India, a manufacturer of large diesel engines and complete propulsion systems, has opened a new engine test cell facility at its service centre in Tathawade near Pune.
The test cell’s dynamometer system is capable of testing all MTU engines up to Series 4000 in the range of 300 to 4300kW, according to MTU test protocol, and for all applications. In February 2010, MTU India opened its new head office for sales and service operations in Pune.
Satish Phadke, Director and CEO of MTU India, said, “With our new engine test cell facility, MTU India will be able to expand its commitment to customers on service and better meet customer expectations for a full load cycle test.”
Tony Davis, Vice-President for Network Management & Global Distribution at MTU, inaugurated the engine test cell facility. “Establishing the new test cell at MTU India Service Centre is in line with Tognum’s expansion plan in India. Since 2010, we have expanded our presence in the Indian market with continued investments in terms of facilities, tools and network,” he said.
