MAN Energy Solutions Australia (formerly MAN Diesel & Turbo Australia Pty Ltd) has supported engines in the Australian region since early last century.
Serving Australia since the pre-Diesel era
The first engine associated with a predecessor company arrived in Australia in 1894, three years before Rudolf Diesel built his first successful diesel engine in Augsburg, Germany (at the factory which is now the headquarters of MAN Energy Solutions SE).
The engine was an Ackroyd-Stuart oil engine manufactured by Richard Hornsby & Sons Ltd of Grantham, UK, and it was installed in a South Australian sawmill where it had a long and successful life.
1912 marks first MAN diesel engine Down Under
The first diesel engine from MAN arrived in Australia in 1912. This was a 4-cylinder type ALV 49 producing 400 hp, weighing some 35 tons.
Establishing a service capability
With around one in every two ships having MAN engines, MAN B&W developed customer support capabilities during the 1970’s in Sydney, including engineering, fuel injection servicing and turbocharger repairs.
In June 2000 the MAN B&W Sydney support organisation merged with the former ALSTOM Australia Engines division to form MAN B&W Diesel Australia. In 2006 the name was simplified to MAN Diesel Australia. In 2010 MAN Turbo merged with MAN Diesel, MAN Diesel was renamed MAN Diesel & Turbo and in July 2018 to MAN Energy Solutions.
MAN Energy Solutions Australia is 100% owned by the European-based MAN Energy Solutions SE.

MAN Energy Solutions Australia has the resources and skills to provide expert support for a broad range of diesel, dual fuel and gas engines for power generation and marine propulsion.
