MAN Diesel adds high speed engines to portfolio
MAN Nutzfahrzeuge is transferring part of its business involving high-speed engines to sister company, MAN Diesel.
From January 1, 2010 a new MAN Diesel High Speed Business Unit will offer diesel and gas engines in a performance range from 70 kW to 1,400 kW used in yachts, smaller work vessels, locomotives and other applications. The business unit will be based in Nuremberg site, where the engines will continue to be manufactured as previously.
"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 be responsible for the high speed business.
