Important facts about MAN diesel engines for professional shipping

For use in commercial shipping, MAN Engines offers a wide range of high-speed four-stroke diesel engines that provide a power spectrum from 147 kW to 735 kW (200 HP to 1,000 HP) in heavy-duty operation. In medium-duty operation, the power range extends from 412 kW to 1,066 kW (560 HP to 1,450 HP). Engine programme with guaranteed efficiency: In light-duty operation (up to 1,000 hrs/year at 20 % full load share), the power range of the 6-, 8- and 12-cylinder engines extends from 537 kW to 1,397 kW (730 HP to 1,900 HP).

MAN marine engines are characterised by powerful acceleration with extremely economical fuel consumption. Their advantages predominantly lie in their outstanding power output combined with compact dimensions. The engines are delivered ready for installation and are optimally designed for the respective application and operating conditions – the robust lightweights convince in every respect and in every application.

Stationary gas engines in marine use

The Dutch shipyard Concordia Damen will build the enormous number of 40 new Parsifal inland waterway barges by the end of 2024. MAN Engines plays an important role in this process and is supplying 80 MAN E3262 gas engines. The 12-cylinder engines are installed in gensets from the Dutch partner MAN Rollo. In combination with electric motors, each two of the gas engines, which deliver a total of 990 kW, form the hybrid drive of the low-emission tankers.

MAN base engine: The basis for our engines

Engines are used in a broad range of applications. And each application places very different specific demands on the motor. The MAN-developed V-engine series D2868/D2862 has successfully managed to introduce 8- and 12-cylinder engines to the market in road vehicles, agricultural machinery, trains, yachts, workboats and for power generation as diesel and gas gensets.

The MAN hybrid drive for the “Vision Of The Fjords”

The “Vision of the Fjords” is a futuristic sightseeing catamaran in carbon construction by the Norwegian shipyard Brødrene Aa AS. It received the “Ship of the year Award” from the Norwegian ship magazine “Skipsrevyen” at the fair SMM 2016 in Hamburg. Basis of the groundbreaking parallel hybrid drive is a 12-cylinder diesel engine from MAN Engines in each of the two drive units.
