Moving big things to zero
250 years of experience in advanced engineering of complex systems has prepared us well for our biggest challenge yet.
Moving big things to zero. We engineer systems for deep decarbonization in sectors that matter most.
We have the opportunity to decarbonize industries that are crucial for the world economy. That’s why we get out of bed every morning.
Our Corporate Strategy
We rely on five technologies to help our clients achieving the target of ‘net zero’:
Hydrogen is the essential feedstock for all green fuels. It will play a key role for sectors where direct electrification is not possible.
Together with our hydrogen daughter H-TEC SYSTEMS we want to become one of the world‘s top 3 producers of PEM Electrolysis units.
Combined with MAN‘s solution competence this puts us on the forefront of synthetic green fuels production.
Carbon-neutral propulsion requires not only green fuels, but also suitable engines.
Already today we offer green engines that are ready to operate on several synthetic fuels like Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG) or Methanol.
In 2024 we will introduce the world‘s first ammonia engine to the market.
To make green shipping a reality, CO2 emissions of the existing fleet need to be reduced as well.
Our Retrofit solutions reduce GHG emissions by up to 20 percent, turning Heavy Fuel Oil engines into gas engines.
Retrofitted engines are also ready to be operated on synthetic fuels.
In some sectors, avoiding or reducing CO2 emissions is not an option.
Our Carbon Capture solutions enable clients to compensate unavoidable emissions.
Captured CO2 can be sequestrated or reused, thus forming the backbone of a carbon circular economy.
The energy transition is in fact a heat transition, as more than 50% of end-use energy consumption is heat and around 40 % of global carbon emissions come from heat generation.
At MAN Energy Solutions, we supply heat pumps not only for district heating, but also for the process industry to drive this transition.
Running on green electricity, they have virtually zero emissions. In addition, we concentrate on eco-friendly coolants.
What will be achieved by 2030
Our Lighthouse Projects
A series of groundbreaking projects shows that MAN Energy Solutions’s pioneering spirit is helping clients move ahead swiftly on the road to net zero.
ElbBLUE: SNG world premiere
In a world-first for the maritime sector, the containership, ‘ElbBLUE’ bunkered some 20 tons of green SNG (Synthetic Natural Gas).
It is the first time ever that synthetic fuel – generated from 100% renewable energy via power-to-X technology – has been employed in commercial shipping.
Moller Maersk: carbon neutral cargo ship
With Maersk’s order of the world’s first container vessel fueled by carbon-neutral methanol, the fuel’s use is likely to gain momentum as maritime shipping transitions to become a greener industry.
MAN Energy Solutions will supply the engine.
Esbjerg: decarbonizing heat supply with ETES
MAN Energy Solutions will deliver the first cross-sectoral ETES system to the port city of Esbjerg (Denmark).
The system will be installed in a new district heating plant. It will be based on the operating principle of a heat pump – on a large, industrial scale. With an overall heating capacity of 50 MW, the plant will supply around 100,000 local inhabitants with heat.
Heidelberg Cement: reducing hard to abate emissions
In 2024, the Heidelberg Cement Norcem plant near Oslo will begin using a system developed by MAN Energy Solutions and Aker Carbon Capture. The Carbon Capture Heat Recovery (CCWHR®) technology will reduce the plant’s carbon emissions
by 400,000 metric tons, which amounts to half of the total emissions.
