54 E&MJ • JULY 2019 SUPPLIERS REPORT agreement on the construction and sale of engines. Previously, the companies formed a joint venture, MTU Yuchai Power, in 2017 to build MTU S4000 diesel engines in the southern Chinese city of Yulin. The engines have been manufactured there since 2018. The collaboration agreement springs from the proven viability of the joint venture, Rollys-Royce reported. "The successes we have had so far are a good basis for working together to develop further areas of collaboration for the benefit of all involved," Tobias Ostermai- er, president, Greater China, Rolls-Royce Power Systems, said. Separately, XCMG reported it delivered a dozen 100-ton XDE120 electric-drive haul trucks to a mining operation in Australia. The trucks feature a 1,200-hp engine and a variable frequency AC drive, the company reported. Since 2018, XCMG has exported a series of products to Australian customers, including its GR3505 mining grader and LW1200KN front-end loader. Brake Suppliers Conglomerate Sweden's Dellner Brakes, Germany's Pintsch Bubenzer GmbH and Italy's Rima Srl joined to form the Dellner Bubenzer Group, a global supplier of braking products for the mining space. The new $114 million, 480-employee Dellner Bubenzer Group will operate globally though their existing facilities in Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Italy, USA, Dubai, India, Malaysia, Singapore and China. Dellner Brakes, Pintsch Bubenzer and Rima will continue to operate under their own brands. Leadership at Pintsch Bubenzer said the development caps a long history of the companies working together. "With a shared focus on innovation, technolog- ical leadership, high-quality products and customer service, we are well placed to realize the many industrial benefits that this new structure brings us," Markus Topp, CEO, Pintsch Bubenzer, said. Geophysique Carries Azimuth Aligner Minnovare announced a distributor agree- ment with Quebec-based Geophysique TMC, which will be the official sales and service agent for the Azimuth Aligner range throughout Quebec province. Leadership at Minnovare said Geophy- sique TMC's reputation helped garner the contract. "Their specialization in drilling applications and their cultural fit align well with Minnovare," Mick Beilby, com- mercial director, Minnovare, said. Geophysique TMC specializes in geo- physical data collection solutions and to that end offers equipment and consult- ing services. Leadership at the company described the partnership as fitting. "We are immediately able to offer high-quality products to all of our customers in Can- ada, supported by the professional Min- novare team," Gabriel McCrory, director, Geophysique TMC, said. The Azimuth Aligner automates drill rig alignment, increasing accuracy and efficiency while reducing downtime, Min- novare reported. thyssenkrupp Opens Brisbane Center thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions opened a service center in Brisbane, Austra- lia, to support its customer base on the East Coast of Australia and in Oceania.
