MAN To Create Power Engineering Unit Out of Diesel & Turbo Groups
MAN Diesel SE and MAN Turbo AG are to work more closely together in future with the aim of forming a merger with each other under corporate law. By combining the complementary product portfolios, the merged company will strive for further growth and a stronger position in its respec-tive market segments, they said. “This will allow the MAN Group to combine the engine and power plant expertise of the Diesel Engines business area with the compressor and turbine technology of the Turbomachinery business area to form a strong Power Engineering unit for the long term,” said Håkan Samuelsson, chairman of the Executive Board of MAN SE.
MAN Diesel provides large-bore diesel engines for use in ships and power plants, while MAN Turbo specialises in the development and construction of compressors, gas and steam turbines. By combining these two MAN business areas, the merged company will in future be able to offer its customers product packages such as turnkey DCC power plants (Diesel Combined Cycle), for example, or waste heat recovery systems for marine applications.
“As well as expanding the product range, the integration of the two MAN companies provides further benefits, for instance in terms of costs. Joint global purchasing or joint use of existing production sites are two examples of this,” said Dr.-Ing. Georg Pachta-Reyhofen. The chairman of the Executive Board of MAN Diesel SE is to perform the same role in an amalgamated company.
The chairman of the Executive Board of MAN Turbo AG, Klaus Stahlmann, is to become deputy chairman of the Executive Board. The new combination will have annual sales of around four billion euros and employ a workforce of approx. 12000 worldwide headquartered in Augsburg, Germany.
