Four-stroke gas engine

MAN Diesel & Turbo is the worlds leading designer and manufacturer of low and
medium speed engines. Our involvement with electrical power generators goes
back to 1904 when we supplied the first ever diesel generator sets to the Kiev Tram
Since those early days, MAN Diesel & Turbo has never lost its technological preeminence in the large engine field. Likewise, our engines have never relinquished
their status as the most efficient combustion engines available.
More than ever before, MAN Diesel & Turbos development focus is on the environmental performance of our engines. Using our unrivalled grasp of large engine
technology, we aim to make our engines progressively cleaner, more powerful and
more efficient.
With our absolute commitment to reducing emissions while increasing fuel effi
ciency and power density and our pro-active involvement in the emissions law
making process, we intend to be part of the global emissions solution.
