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.
Low carbon Oil & Gas solutions
MAN Energy Solutions offers intelligent, sustainable solutions and unique technologies for all sectors of the oil and gas industry. Our solutions are designed to reduce waste and minimize resource consumption along the entire value chain – from refinery to transport, and during the processing of these valuable resources.
For instance, our groundbreaking MAN Subsea technology is supporting the lifetime extension of Norway´s main gas field, Asagard, by another 15 years.
Moreover, MAN Energy Solutions is supplying technologies for carbon capture and storage (CSS), which is increasingly taking center stage in the industry and politics alike.
Low carbon Process Industry solutions
The manufacturing and refining sectors of the global economy are incredibly diverse. However, all industries have one thing in common: the need for sustainable, efficient and cost-effective solutions in order to reduce emissions and industrial waste.
MAN Energy Solutions offers a wide array of specialized products and solutions that cater to the specific needs of diverse industries - from paper to pipeline, from fertilizer to ferrous metals. MAN products are found in both the largest industrial plants in the world and in smaller, single-site operations.
Low carbon service solutions
As sustainability becomes a focal point for our customers’ business, so it becomes a priority for our services. Limiting waste in materials, work force and energy consumption is not just for new installations and products, it is also crucially important for maintenance, repair and retrofits.
The latest solutions for retrofits and upgrades by MAN PrimeServ ensure energy efficiency, cut greenhouse emissions, and minimize the carbon footprint of any installation. Our solutions not only help tackle efficiency challenges but offer future-proof, cost-aware options to sharpen our customers’ competitive edge.
To help meet the challenges of a transforming energy market and ever-stricter regulations, we monitor global and local market trends and regulatory and legislative requirements. To guarantee state-of-the-art service solutions from a single source, we always keep a 360° perspective on important markets, OEM expertise and third-party competence.
Latest news on decarbonization
MAN 49/60DF Successfully Passes TAT
MAN Energy Solutions’ MAN 49/60DF engine has received its Type Approval after a five-day programme on the testbed at company HQ in Augsburg, Germany. The Type Approval Test (TAT) was witnessed by inspectors representing the ABS, BV, CCS, DNV, LR and RINA classification societies, who signed the test protocol upon the successful completion of the schedule.
Marita Krems, Head of Four-Stroke Marine & License, MAN Energy Solutions, said: “Today marks the latest milestone in the 49/60DF’s journey since its concept release in 2018. As we enter a new era of decarbonisation, the 49/60DF is an obvious choice for vessel owners with ambitious, emission-reduction targets that prize full fuel-flexibility and multiple options for clear emission paths.”
Thomas Huchatz, Sales Manager Four-Stroke Marine, MAN Energy Solutions, said: “Over the last eighteen months, we have demonstrated the engine’s reliability and robustness. The TAT now issued is a certificate of conformity that confirms that the engine meets the regulatory, technical and safety requirements required to enter the marketplace.”
Latest dual-fuel model
MAN Energy Solutions announced the launch of the 49/60DF at the 2022 SMM trade fair in Hamburg. The most recent addition to its four-stroke engine portfolio, the dual-fuel engine is capable of running on LNG, diesel and HFO as well as a number of more sustainable fuels including biofuel blends and synthetic natural gas. MAN Energy Solutions states that it sets a benchmark in terms of fuel efficiency within four-stroke engines – both in gas and diesel mode – and therefore minimises fuel costs and potential costs for CO2-emission certificates.
The new 49/60DF engine platform features MAN’s latest technologies, including two-stage turbocharging, second-generation common-rail fuel injection, the SaCoS5000 automation system, and MAN’s next-generation Adaptive Combustion Control ACC 2.0 that automatically optimises combustion. The engine also retains well-proven MAN technolgies such as the gas-injection system, pilot-fuel-oil system and MAN SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system.
Multiple compliancy paths
The MAN 49/60DF can operate and even start in gas mode where it complies with IMO Tier III without exhaust gas after-treatment. In diesel mode, it complies with Tier III when combined with MAN’s SCR system.
Soot emissions in diesel mode are halved due to the second-generation common-rail system 2.2, while the 49/60DF’s methane emissions are also drastically reduced in gas mode. The engine’s benchmark efficiency and fuel-flexible design offers multiple paths to emission compliancy leading up to 2050, as per the current Fuel EU draft.
The new engine is also methanol-ready, meaning it is inherently ready for retrofit to running on methanol should the demand arise at a later stage. Conversions are straightforward as all engine variants originate from an initial, modular engine design.
Pure diesel version
MAN Energy Solutions is also introducing a pure diesel engine based on the 49/60 platform that will be methanol- and LNG-ready and features the same technology upgrades as its dual-fuel sibling; the engine can also operate on bio-fuels. This pure-diesel version allows MAN’s new common-rail system to fully play to its strengths of low-emission and low-vibration operation, paired with the maximum flexibilty to design the combusion process to minimise fuel costs. Furthermore, its high power-density extends the power range of inline engines into applications traditionally equipped with V-type engines.
