Staying economical with LNG supply and bunker systems

Natural gas is an environmentally friendly power source that contributes to profitability. Our dual-fuel propulsion and liquid natural gas (LNG) supply systems reduce emissions, increase fuel efficiency and power density, and keep operation economical. The possibility to switch over seamlessly from gas to diesel operation and vice versa ensures full flexibility in terms of costs and emissions. As we supply both the engines and the complete fuel gas supply system equipment, we can work with ship designers to perfectly integrate holistic propulsion solutions.

The sophisticated world of LNG 

Navigating very competitive and highly regulated markets

Maritime transport of LNG has proven safe thanks to very high safety standards. However, building vessels for the LNG supply and bunkering industry represents a major investment in complex technology. Reliability, flexibility, capital expenditure, operating expenses, and emission regulations are just some of the factors to be considered when investing in LNG technology. Our LNG solutions can be tailored to meet every requirement, from LNG technology for dual-fuel propulsion to complete LNG fuel gas supply systems,

LNG, both as fuel and as cargo. Must be handled in a safe and cost-effective way. MAN provides all components, training, and support for gas propulsion and supply. Our solutions are based on established technologies and are also environmentally compliant.

General competence

After our 2016 acquisition of Cryo AB, a manufacturer of cryogenic equipment with over 50 years’ experience in cleaner-burning LNG, MAN Energy Solutions created the MAN Cryo product brand – the perfect complement to our dual-fuel engines. We offer holistic solutions for comprehensive engine and environmentally friendly fuel gas supply systems (FGSS), offshore and onshore bunkering systems, and stationary distribution systems for regasification or fuel filling – all from a single source.
