German provider of large-bore diesel and gas engines and LNG fuel-gas systems MAN Diesel & Turbo, has changed its name to MAN Energy Solutions.
The rebranding move, according to the company’s statement, represents the company’s strategic and technological transformation that will see it expanding its business with sustainable technologies and solutions.
“This strategic realignment is supported by the expansion of MAN Energy Solutions’ product range to include hybrid, storage and digital service technologies,” the company’s statement reads.
Speaking of the move, Uwe Lauber, chairman of the board at MAN Energy Solutions, noted that emissions reduction is already a part of the company’s business, and the company sees potential in power-to-gas technology, which allows energy generated from renewable sources to be converted into synthetic fuels, such as natural gas.
“Using Power-to-Gas technology, we can produce a number of completely carbon-neutral, synthetic gases that can drastically reduce the CO2 impact of logistics and energy generation when used as fuel,” he said.
In shipping, the company will continue its efforts to increase the use of natural gas as fuel.
