MAN Engines has announced its commitment to become more active in the USA and is presenting at ConExpo-Con/Agg a selection from its engine range for construction machinery, as well as for power generation.
MAN’s commitment to the Americas dates back to more than 20 years, through its subsidiary, MAN Engines & Components, Inc. (MEC), Pompano Beach, Fla. MAN has now appointed Jürgen Haberland, currently head of off-road MAN engines, as business development manager in the USA – a role he will take up on August 1, 2017, reporting to Ricardo Barbosa, CEO of MEC.
MAN Engines covers a power range from 400 to 1110 hp (294 to 816 kW) with three engine series D2676, D3876, and D2862 – 12.4, 15.2, and 24.2-L respectively – for applications such as wheel loaders, excavators, dump trucks, and mobile cranes.
For power generation, MAN’s naturally aspirated gas engines cover a power range from 62 to 580 kW at 1800 r/min with the three engine series E0834/E0836, E2676, and E3262, with 4.6/6.9, 12.4, and 25.8 L capacities. An alternative portfolio of turbocharged, lean-burn engines based on the same engine series is available for use with natural and special gases (from 68 to 580 kW).
Also for power generation, MAN Engines announced the current testing of the completely new E2676 E302 six-cylinder inline engine for cogeneration or block-type thermal power plants.
Built on the basic architecture of the D2676 diesel engine variant – already in use in different on-road, off-road, and marine applications, the new naturally aspirated engines will progressively replace the E2876 model engines.
The E2676 is already available for applications in 50 Hz markets. In cooperation with the combined heat and power (CHP) packager Co-Energy America, a field test for applications with 60 Hertz was started in June 2016. The engine is the prime mover of a 150 kW cogeneration system at a Holiday Inn hotel, in Cape Cod, Hyannis, Mass.
MAN will exhibit at South Hall 3, S83541.
