The FINANCIAL -- MAN Diesel & Turbo becomes MAN Energy Solutions. The company is changing its name and sports a new corporate design.
The completely redesigned brand identity represents a new strategic and technological dawn for the company, which began implementing its new strategy for the future last year. MAN is continuing to evolve into a system and solution provider, and wants to make sustainable technologies and solutions for shipping, energy generation and industrial production a key source of revenue, according to Volkswagen AG.
"System technologies that help our customers to increase the efficiency of their plants and reduce emissions are already a significant part of our business, and also lead the way to a carbon-neutral future. We will resolutely continue on this path of growth and increasingly become a supplier of complete solutions,” says Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Energy Solutions.
The company is expanding its portfolio to include hybrid, storage and digital service technologies, thereby positioning itself as a solution provider for the great challenge of our times being faced by the economy and society: the transition to a climate-neutral economy by the middle of this century. That is the target set by the international community in the Paris climate agreement.
MAN wants not merely to go along with this transition, but to make it a success for its customers with sustainable solutions. Because its products and services target the main drivers of economic and ecological progress: alternative propulsion systems in shipping, sustainable and reliable power supply, and efficient industrial production. “Energy and its use are of preeminent importance in all these customer segments, so shipping, energy and industry will remain key sectors for the company in the future,” says Uwe Lauber, according to Volkswagen AG.
MAN Energy Solutions sees great potential in power-to-X technology, which can be used to convert renewable energy into climate-neutral synthetic fuels. Together with ABB, the company also recently presented the innovative ETES (Electro-thermal Energy Storage) solution, with which entire neighborhoods can be supplied with electricity, heating and cooling. For quite some time now, MAN Energy Solutions has been campaigning for a ‘maritime energy transition’, which focuses on the increased use of low-emission gases for fuel. The company also offers a number of alternative propulsion technologies, including hybrid systems, with a view to further reducing the share of heavy fuel oil engines in maritime traffic in other areas of application, too.
