At the Monaco Yacht Show 2019, TEAM Italia presented the first technical solutions stemming from the collaboration of TEAM Italia and Rolls Royce with its products and solution brand MTU.  Over the last 12 months, the research and development departments of the two companies worked together to develop new solutions for the MTU SmartBridge, an integrated bridge which will offer the industry a top-quality and innovative solution.

Massimo Minnella, Co-founder and TEAM Italia CEO, stated: “We’re delighted at the opportunity to work with Rolls-Royce and join forces with them in driving future technologies for the MTU brand.  We already know from previous collaborations that our products complement each other perfectly and that quality and innovation are priorities we share.”

Knut Müller – Head of marine and governmental business of the Rolls-Royce’ business unit PowerSystems – declared: “The MTU SmartBridge is a significant piece of progress in terms of our evolution from a straightforward engine maker to an integrated systems provider.  Our customers benefit because we supply them with a complete solution from one source.”

The modular concept underlying the new bridge can be customised according to the owners’ requests.  The new solutions will have one common development platform which will implement the TEAM Italia I-Bridge® with the Onyx monitoring of all onboard systems and, additionally the MTU propulsion system, up to managing the data in the cloud.

The bridge will be already available in 202 for full-custom megayachts and series yachts.
