MAN Diesel To Include High Speed Engines in its Future Portfolio
MAN Nutzfahrzeuge will transfer part of its business involving high-speed engines to the group’s sister company, MAN Diesel. Effective January 1, 2010, these activities will be integrated into MAN Diesel to form the business unit, High Speed.
This new business unit will offer diesel and gas engines in a performance range from 70 to 1400 kW used in yachts, smaller working ships, locomotives and decentralized energy supplies such as emergency gensets. The MAN Diesel High Speed Business Unit will be based at the Nuremberg site, where engines will continue to be manufactured as previously by MAN Nutzfahrzeuge.
“High-speed engines fit into our product portfolio extremely well. On the one hand, we’re able to logically supplement our product range, while on the other we’re able to move into a new maritime segment that promises profitable growth for the future,” says Dr. Stephan Timmermann, the MAN Diesel Executive Board member who will in future be responsible for the High Speed business.
The High Speed Business Unit will be based in Nuremberg and will be in charge of development, sales and service for high-speed engines. Production will remain the responsibility of MAN Nutzfahrzeuge.
