Powering clean energy generation and shipping
As large ocean-going vessels cannot be electrified with batteries or fuel cells, they still need to rely on combustion engines on their journey towards a climate-neutral future. Green shipping is possible, however, by decarbonizing the fuels used in internal combustion engines. We are spearheading technologies like fuel-flexible engines and propulsion systems that will contribute to a carbon-neutral future.
For future power generation we focus on future-proof gas- and dual-fuel engines that can be operated with increasing proportions of green hydrogen and other climate-neutral fuels.
Our retrofitting technology rebuilds ship and power plant engines into dual-fuel machines. This extends their life cycles and is thus essential for the energy transition.
Our highlights for flexible and sustainable technology
MAN Energy Solutions’ attractive marine and energy generation solutions offer power, flexibility, and efficiency. This allows you to meet growing demands for sustainability, low emissions, and high reliability. Explore our dual-fuel two-stroke MAN B&W ME-LGIM and ME-GI engines as well as powerful and dynamic gas engines like the MAN 35/44G that are ready to be used with future fuels and perfect for CHP and hybrid power plants.
Driving the energy transition on land and sea
MAN Energy Solutions is helping shape the future of the marine and energy industries by developing engines which run on the green fuels that will play a crucial role in decarbonization and the energy transition. We have been a pioneer and active driver of the Maritime Energy Transition for many years and are now greatly ramping up the use of green fuels in shipping. The company’s innovative combined heat and power (CHP) plants maximize every drop of fuel by converting waste heat into energy. This way, they can serve many thermal applications – from industrial to district heating.
Green energy in use
MAN Energy Solutions technology is in use throughout the world. These three examples illustrate the range of activities where the company’s green engines and future fuels have been successfully implemented
Decarbonize now with LNG-to-power
Do you know that LNG is the fuel for change?
LNG-to-power is a perfect way to transition to clean energy production. LNG is already much cleaner than other fossil fuels and is a reliable partner for renewables. And that’s just the start: With LNG infrastructure in place, the future looks even cleaner, because you are ready for CO2-neutral synthetic natural gas.Download paper
