MAN Diesel & Turbo North America represents its parent company, Germany-based MAN Diesel & Turbo SE, whose roots date back to 1758 and is a leading provider of large-bore diesel engines for marine and stationary applications, and is one of three leading suppliers of turbomachinery. The company designs two-stroke and four-stroke engines that are manufactured both by the company and by its licensees, with power outputs ranging from 450 kW to 87 MW. MAN also designs and manufactures gas turbines, turbochargers, propellers (both controllable and fixed pitch), gas engines and chemical reactors.
Thanks to its far reaching experience and extensive product line, MAN Diesel & Turbo can furnish complete marine propulsion systems. Customers receive worldwide after-sales services marketed under the MAN PrimeServ brand. Marked as a significant advancement in propulsion technology, Doosan Engine, under license from MAN Diesel and Turbo, recently supplied the world’s first dual-fuel, low-speed 8L70ME-GI engine to NASSCO to power the first of two TOTE Marlin Class containerships capable of operating on LNG and/or bunker C oil. The new Marlin class, to enter service in late 2015 and early 2016, is said to hold capability to reduce SOx emissions by 98 percent, particulate matter by 99 percent and NOx and CO2 by 71 percent.
