Defence Power Solutions

Penske New Zealand works closely with the defence sector to provide customised propulsion and power generation solutions, along with life of type logistic support for defence combatants.

200 Rheinmetall MAN military vehicles (RMMV), ten mtu, and eight Sauer Compressors products operate within the New Zealand Defence Force. This economy of scale has optimised life cycle costs while maintaining fleet availability to meet the specialised requirements of the New Zealand Defence Force.

Our full range of diesel engines are rated from 75 to 9,000 kW for use in patrol boats, frigates, and other maritime platforms as well as armoured and tactical vehicles. Renowned for their reliability, simple operation, ease of maintenance and low life cycle costs, mtu engines are ideal for defence applications.

Penske New Zealand also provides custom ship automation systems with components for monitoring and control, as well as fully embedded onboard training and maintenance.

Penske New Zealand understands the complexities of the defence acquisition and logistic support methodology and has a proven track record of providing highly specialised and customised solutions that meet the demands of defence operations.
