market continues. The power plant in Schwäbisch Hall is getting another MAN
12V35/44G TS gas engine.
Indispensable and incredibly versatile – the expander is becoming
increasingly important as a key product in the energy transition. MAN Energy
Solutions is developing a single-stage expander build package in close
synchronization with the market.
A pilot project looking at a new
manufacturing option for complex components has been running at the Augsburg site for
four years and will come to an end in October 2020. What insights has MAN Energy Solutions gained from it?
The benefits of LNG as a fuel
are undisputed, but the emission of methane in the course of combustion could
cancel out its positive climate impact. A key issue for the future that
presents challenges for MAN Energy Solutions too.
In February, MAN ES France launched a product
with the ability to detect engine anomalies. Its initial use by customers is
already showing that the MAN Fluid Monitor has a great future ahead of it.
Digitalization is now
indispensable in production too. But the road to the digital factory is long
and hard. MAN Energy Solutions has already taken the first steps.
