Rolls-Royce Australia Services Pty Ltd
Rolls-Royce is a global company providing highly efficient integrated power and propulsion solutions. Our power systems are predominantly used in aerospace, marine, energy and off-highway applications
Rolls-Royce Group has played an important role in the development of Australia’s civil and military aviation for a century. Today around 1,000 Rolls-Royce supplied gas turbine aero engines are in service, or on order in Australia. We are also a leading supplier of advanced propulsion, handling and electrical, automation & control systems for naval vessels.
Rolls-Royce Australia Services is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Rolls-Royce Group, headquartered in Sydney. We also have an office in Canberra, as well as engineering and field service representatives providing customer support at other locations.
Rolls-Royce powers a number of aerospace customers in Australia including airlines, business jets, private aircraft and the Australian Defence Force (ADF). We have powered ADF aircraft since the formation of the Service in 1921.
Today around 40% of the installed engines in the Australian Defence Forces are supplied by Rolls-Royce. The Rolls-Royce and Turbomeca partnership gas turbine engines power the Australian Army’s fleet of Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopters. This partnership also supplies engines to the Royal Australian Navy and Australian Army MRH-90 multi-role helicopters. We support the regional commercial helicopter fleets and our Model 250 engines are also widely used by a variety of commercial helicopters.
Land & Sea
Rolls-Royce propulsion, equipment is extensively used and supported on the Royal Australian Navy’s FFG and Anzac class frigates. In conjunction with our partner Kellogg, Brown and Root we supply a range of integrated material support services to the Royal Australian Navy for the upkeep of its Amphibious fleet of vessels and the new Landing Helicopter Dock Ship's, HMAS CANBERRA and HMAS ADELAIDE.
The Rolls-Royce marine gas turbine range includes the MT30, a modern generation gas turbine which will be the power behind the Royal Australian Navy’s new Hunter class ships. Designed to maximise efficiency and performance, MT30 delivers 36MW to 40MW of power for its overhaul life flat rated to 38°C. In cases where MT30 is used as a boost engine, no major overhaul is required during a typical ship’s life of 25-30 years. The MT30’s ease of maintenance and ultra-low planned maintenance requirements complemented by a world class training package, ensures minimal maintenance burden and removes the requirement for specialised support. This ensures reduced costs of upkeep and the release of valuable ship resources to be employed elsewhere.
Rolls-Royce Power Systems offers a wide-ranging product portfolio including high-speed diesel and gas engines from MTU*, distributed energy systems from MTU Onsite Energy and medium-speed diesel and gas engines.
