Rolls-Royce has signed a deal with Pacific Power Group to distribute and service Kamewa steel and aluminum series waterjets in the Western U.S., Alaska and Hawaii. 

 
Pacific Power Group, a longtime distributor for Rolls-Royce MTU diesel engines, has been providing sales, service and engineering solutions for the marine industry for over 30 years. By joining forces with Pacific Power Group, Rolls-Royce customers will have access to a single source provider for a complete range of propulsion components including engines, control systems and waterjets. 
 
With access to Pacific Power Group’s engineering expertise and 24/7 customer support, marine customers across the Western U.S, will benefit from a streamlined procurement and building process. Customers will now have access to an expanded service network improving the availability of service engineers and spare parts needed to keep their vessels working.
 
Tommi Viiperi, Rolls-Royce, General Manager Waterjets Sales and Marketing, said, “Pacific Power Group is an existing distributor for Rolls-Royce MTU engines, which are the perfect complement to our range of waterjets. This partnership with Pacific Power Group will allow us to support our existing customers better, improving services and parts availability as well as introducing the Rolls-Royce brand to new ones.”
 
Washington state-based Pacific Power Group has four sales, service, and parts warehousing facilities servicing the Western U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii. They provide a wide range of products to various industries and have a strong market position in the defense, commercial fishing, ferry, yacht and tug markets.
 
Bill Mossey, Vice President of Marine at Pacific Power Group said, “We’ve seen increasing demand from customers looking for a single-source propulsion provider that offers technical expertise on all propulsion components. The addition of Rolls Royce Kamewa waterjets to our product lineup allows us to better meet the needs of customers in the Western U.S.”
