The Engine & Machinery division of Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI-EMD) recently signed a contract extending its two-stroke license agreement with MAN Diesel & Turbo. This latest extension continues a low-speed collaboration that began in 1976.
MAN Diesel & Turbo was represented at the signing ceremony by Klaus Engberg, senior vice president and head of Two-Stroke Licensing, Thomas Knudsen, senior vice president, head of Low-Speed, Bjarne Foldager, vice president, Promotion & Sales, Two-Stroke Business and Søren H. Jensen, vice president, R&D.
“MAN Diesel & Turbo has enjoyed a long working relationship with Hyundai, one that we are delighted to extend,” Knudsen said. “Hyundai has always played a significant role in the development of two-stroke innovation and, indeed, produces the full range of our low-speed portfolio. We look forward to inspiring each other for many years to come.”
