In the MAN Truck & Bus Group the MAN Nuremberg plant is the international competence centre for the development, production and sale of diesel and gas engines with a power spectrum from 37 kW to 1,397 kW (50 HP to 1,900 HP).
MAN engines have been reliably powering the trucks and buses of the MAN and NEOPLAN brands for years. Furthermore, they also work with full energy in road and rail vehicles, yachts and workboats, electricity generators and communal heating/power stations, construction and agricultural machinery.
Through its intensive research, MAN engine development always finds responses to the environmentally relevant issues of reductions in consumption and emissions. The most recent success: practically zero-pollution trucks and buses thanks to fully developed MAN Euro 6 technology.
High-technology process secure not only the quality of the engines and components, they also conserve resources and the environment. An example is the cold testing method for engines, that MAN was the first commercial-vehicle manufacturer to use in 2006. It tests engines quickly, reliably and above all environmentally friendly. As opposed to hot testing, cold testing saves around one million litres of diesel fuel as well as over 3,000 tons of CO2 per year. Furthermore, test runs have been relocated from the road to the test bench with state-of-the-art test benches. They allow simulation of all traffic, climatic and load situations without polluting the environment.
