More than half of the world’s commercial goods are transported with MAN Diesel & Turbo engines. Around 48,000 ships have our engines on board. Added to this is an ever-growing number of Diesel power plants. We are fully aware of the responsibility that this implies for our company. For MAN Diesel & Turbo, as one of the world's leading manufacturers of large-bore diesel engines, protecting the environment therefore plays a crucial role. Our engineers are developing technologies to reduce emissions and are working successfully on new ways of increasing efficiency.
As our engines require less and less fuel to deliver more and more performance in terms of transport or energy generation, this helps contributing towards a sparing approach to the environment and its resources. For our customers, this also means a significant competitive advantage – after all, fuel costs account for the lion’s share of running costs for both ships and power plants.
