Ensuring reliable energy supply wherever needed 

The main focus of the energy industry is to provide a reliable, secure energy supply to people everywhere in the world today. This is essential to fulfill basic demands, ensure secure, stable systems, and promote positive economic development.

Electricity – an essential need


Everyone needs access to reliable energy – countries and individuals, industries and businesses, in various contexts, and for different purposes. A secure energy supply is essential to help emerging and developing countries, regions with deficient infrastructures, or remote areas to achieve their economic potential. Reliable energy is the key to ensuring stability and security in case of emergencies, blackouts or any other interruptions. Finally, fluctuating renewable energy sources require backup or supplemental solutions to keep electricity available at all times

MAN solutions for securing energy supplies around the world

In today’s changing energy landscape, providers absolutely need to ensure a reliable power supply that offers operational flexibility. Our power plant solutions deliver high efficiency, flexibility, safety and reliability, and are designed to master the challenges of providing a secure energy supply around the world.

When it comes to ensuring top reliability and securing the energy supply, MAN offers its customers unique expertise and the right products and solutions. Our portfolio ranges from stationary engines and turbines for the most rugged environments to emergency diesel generators for nuclear power plants. We also offer versatile energy solutions to fill in when the weather keeps solar and wind power supplies low.


Thermal power plants

In our efforts to secure a reliable energy supply, it is important to maximize the amount of energy we can get from every drop of fuel. Efficient, local thermal power plants convert heat energy into electric energy with little losses.

MAN thermal power plants offer a great deal of operational flexibility. Quick response times and the ability to use various fuels ensure reliable, safe engine and turbine operations. Our durable, easy-to-operate and low-maintenance plants have very little downtime, with availability of 8,000 hours per year.

How you benefit:

  • Secure supply of energy for increased reliability
  • Increased fuel efficiency and flexibility
  • High availability
  • Safe facilities, easy to operate and maintain


LNG terminals


Clean-burning natural gas is a key component in our transition to a carbon-neutral future. To ensure that this valuable resource is available to countries around the world, it is necessary to ensure its safe and efficient supply.

MAN offers a variety of LNG infrastructure solutions along the LNG value chain – from upstream over midstream to downstream – ranging from discharge, storage and regasification to the electrification of gas in customer power plants. One cornerstone of our expertise in this field is MAN Cryo in Gothenburg, Sweden, a specialist for cryogenic applications offering vacuum-insulated tanks, coil-wound vaporizers and piping systems, as well as comprehensive engineering. The combined expertise forms the basis for MAN LNG power plants in an EPC scheme.

How you benefit:

  • Secure supply of energy for increased reliability
  • Clean-burning natural gas for a reduced carbon footprint
  • High availability
  • Safe facilities, easy to operate and maintain

Hybrid power plants

Using renewable energies for sustainable power generation is the ultimate goal – but they all rely on one factor to perform: the weather. The unpredictable nature of the weather makes it difficult to ensure a consistent energy supply with renewables alone.

Our hybrid power plants combine renewable energy sources, thermal power generation and energy storage systems in a microgrid. We can dispatch dynamic capacity solutions with fast-start-stop and load ramp capabilities, including highly efficient multifuel generators for reliable, flexible and efficient power generation. They can also be incorporated into various systems to ensure grid stability and efficiency.

How you benefit:

  • Secure supply of energy for increased reliability
  • Increased fuel efficiency
  • Fewer emissions
  • Hybrid solutions ensure flexibility and fuel independence
