Effective immediately, critical power solutions firm AVK, will now enter into an exclusive partnership with Rolls-Royce MTU brand for standby gensets in UK and Ireland.

The exclusivity agreement was signed by AVK’s UK Managing Director Chris Pritchard, MTU’s UK Managing Director Bruce Phillips and Vice President Power Generation at the Rolls-Royce Power Systems business unit, Andreas Goertz, recently in London.

“The outstanding cooperation with AVK so far has demonstrated that we are stronger together and able to deliver even better products and services to our customers. Therefore we are extremely pleased with this agreement,” Andreas Goertz said.

The agreement covers the supply of MTU Series 2000 and 4000 diesel systems in a range extending from 825 to 4,000 KVA. AVK provides turnkey standby power systems and UPS systems, in addition to taking care of their installation and maintenance.
