German crane manufacturer Tadano is to increase the number of Rolls-Royce mtu engines used across its product ranges.

The mtu engines will now feature on the company’s all-terrain cranes. Expansion of the existing partnership will see about 3000 mtu engines and Daimler transmissions delivered through the end of 2025.

Most of Tadano’s 26 crane models, with two to nine axles and payloads from 45 to 700 tonnes, are already powered by in-line mtu Series 1000, 1100, 1300 and 1500 engines. These deliver power outputs from 129 to 140 kW.

Mtu engines already feature in Tadano crawler cranes, which offer payloads up to 3200 tonnes.

The Stage 5-complaint engines are said to offer low running costs, high reliability and good power-to-weight ratio. In addition, the broad application of mtu engines across the Tadano ranges is said to help streamline related customer services.

Rolls-Royce Power Systems is continuing its transformation to a provider of sustainable, integrated drive and power generation solutions. Supported by the ‘Net Zero at Power Systems’ programme, it is shifting towards a range of climate-neutral solutions.

As part of this, engines supplied to Tadano are certified for use with sustainable fuels, supporting a net-zero emissions balance.
