We power decarbonization

With our products and services, we operate right where the major drivers of economic and ecological progress are located. We are aware of this responsibility and are therefore already offering system technologies that help our customers increase the efficiency of their plants and applications, and reduce emissions.

However, we focus on tomorrow by investing in promising technologies like Battery Hybrid, Green Hydrogen, Power-to-X or Energy Storage.

Low carbon marine solutions

Half the world´s shipping sails under the power of MAN Energy Solutions and each step we take to make our engines more efficient can have a measurable effect on the environment and our customer’s bottom line.

We believe that the future belongs to synthetic fuels generated from renewable energy sources. On this road, LNG is not the end goal, but an investment in the future as all such engines can run on carbon-free fuels without further technical adaptions.

However, the Maritime Energy Transition requires more than just one solution. To this end, we offer MAN ECO CONTROL, a portfolio of technologies that help our marine customers to optimize a ship’s performance in terms of emissions, energy efficiency, economy and operation and let them benefit from smart processes, efficient operation and predictive maintenance services.

Our solutions help reduce ship's emissions, improve efficiency, utilize cleaner fuels and thus meet all current and future regulations while ensuring a lower impact on the environment.

Low carbon energy solutions

A carbon-neutral future needs renewable energies. However, the major challenge remains in their integration into existing energy systems.

This is why we at MAN Energy Solutions develop various hybrid and storage technologies for the energy systems of tomorrow.

When it comes to ensuring reliability and securing the energy supply, MAN offers unparalleled expertise and experience in power generation, combined with the right products and solutions to suit diverse energy markets.

Beyond this, novel decarbonization solutions are another part of MAN Energy Solutions’ portfolio. For example, Power-to-X or clean hybrid and ultra-efficient power plants.

Our customers benefit from the latest technologies – including our smart energy management systems, which ensure the most environmentally friendly, economical energy sources for power production.

MAN Energy Solutions continues to invest in hydrogen: Acquisition of H-TEC SYSTEMS

MAN Energy Solutions has announced its acquisition of almost 99% of the shares in H-TEC SYSTEMS, the manufacturer of PEM electrolysers based in Augsburg, Germany.

Subject to approval by the competition authorities, MAN Energy Solutions has acquired the shares of the previous majority shareholder, GP JOULE, adding to the 40% stake it previously took in the company in 2019. The remaining shares are currently in free float.

Green hydrogen on the rise

Dr. Uwe Lauber, Chief Executive Officer of MAN Energy Solutions, stated: “Green hydrogen is becoming an incredibly important natural resource on our journey to becoming a climate-neutral global economy. With the acquisition of H-TEC SYSTEMS, from now on we will cover all processing steps of the hydrogen economy under the umbrella of MAN Energy Solution. By doing so, we are strategically investing in our expertise as tomorrow's provider of sustainable energy solutions and providing H-TEC SYSTEMS with complete access to our resources and sales networks at the same time. However, the current other shareholder GP JOULE will remain an important sales partner.”

Hubert Aiwanger, Bavarian Minister for Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy as well as Deputy Minister-President of Bavaria, Germany has commented: “In future, green hydrogen will create many jobs in Bavaria and across Germany. We are pleased to see that two pioneers of hydrogen technology, namely MAN Energy Solutions and H-TEC SYSTEMS are rooted in Bavaria. We wish to make the state of Bavaria a leading location for hydrogen technology.”

Management team repositions itself

In the course of the transaction, the management team is strengthened by Dr. Dominik Heiß, who will lead the company together with Dr. Joachim Herrmann and Frank Zimmermann. Frank Zimmermann will also act as management spokesperson moving forward. At the same time, Heinrich Gärtner, GP JOULE, has announced his departure in the course of the transaction.

“We plan to further expand the two company locations in Augsburg and Braak,” said Frank Zimmermann. “Now is the time for promoting the development of PEM electrolysers in the multi-megawatt range. This will also enable the use of the most pioneering electrolysers on an industrial scale.”

“Our thanks go to Heinrich Gärtner who has accompanied H-TEC SYSTEMS on its journey since 2010 and helped make the company a pioneer within the hydrogen economy,” added Dr. Uwe Lauber. “Even though Heinrich is leaving the management team, we will continue to rely on the expertise and experience of GP JOULE as part of our sales partnership.”

H2 and Power-to-X technology pioneers

H-TEC SYSTEMS was founded in 1997 and has over 20 years of experience in hydrogen development and research. At production sites in Schleswig-Holstein and Bavaria, Germany, stacks and electrolysers in the megawatt class based on the polymer-electrolyte membrane process (PEM) are developed by 60 specialists to cover the hydrogen demand for both industrial hydrogen applications and electricity conversion. The H-TEC SYSTEMS electrolysers already make effective sector coupling possible today.

MAN Energy Solutions is also a forerunner in Power-to-X technology, which enables green hydrogen to be converted into climate-neutral fuels. In 2013, the company commissioned the methanation reactor for Europe's first and for a long time most powerful Power-to-Gas plant on a 6 MW scale for Audi AG. Since then, MAN has consistently developed PtX technology and offers turnkey plants with a capacity of 50 MW and more today.
