Danish location to provide propulsion and propeller training.


The newest MAN PrimeServ Academy held its official opening on 21 May 2012 in Frederikshavn, Denmark, in the process becoming the 11th training and education centre in MAN Diesel & Turbo’s global network. The formal opening of the new facility was marked by a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony and a series of speeches delivered by Ole Sohn – the Danish Minister for Business and Growth, Lars Møller – Mayor of Frederikshavn, Wayne Jones – Head of
the PrimeServ Diesel Business Unit, Dr. Stephan Timmermann – Executive Board Member of MAN Diesel & Turbo, along with Poul Knudsgaard – Head of PrimeServ Four-Stroke Denmark and Site Manager of MAN Diesel & Turbo, Frederikshavn, who also hosted the event.

In his opening speech, Knudsgaard said: “It’s with very great pride I stand here today. It’s really a dream come true for Frederikshavn with a new asset and a clear sign of the company’s transformation from manufacturing to service and knowledge.” The specific focus and core competencies of the new PrimeServ Academy are centred on propulsion plants, aft-ship solutions, propellers and control systems.


Frederikshavn offers general training programmes as well as more specialised ones for specific target groups within a typical shipowner organisation. These range from general understanding of manoeuvring functionality and handling for navigators, through optimised operation, maintenance and repair actions for engineers and superintendents, to in-depth knowledge, fine-tuning and troubleshooting training for specialists. Instructors at the new academy will host several streams of training sessions. These will range from basic, standard training programmes and/or special, tailor-made training sessions held in Frederikshavn with simulator drills, hands-on full-scale products and test-rig facilities to, for example, optional training performed on-site at a shipowner premises or even aboard a specific ship.

  • Propulsion engines: MAN L27/38 and MAN L21/31
  • Gearboxes: MAN Alpha AMG range
  • Propellers: MAN Alpha CPP Mk 3 and Mk 5 range
