As with so many other marine segments, population growth is one of the primary market drivers in the fishing industry, in this case revolving around the need for ever-more food resources. Fishing restrictions are another key influence as legislation forces the construction of modern, cost-optimized vessels that can operate profitably.

Modern fishing vessels require cost-efficient propulsion systems (with low first-costs) as well as tough and robust technical solutions for operation in what are some of the harshest and most demanding conditions on the planet. Fishing vessels typically operate in environmentally sensitive areas, therefore emission requirements, such as NOx, SOx and particulate matter, are important.


MAN Energy Solutions has multiple, proven, efficient medium-speed engines that are eminently suitable for the fishing segment. These robust and reliable mechanical propulsion plants come with the option for PTI/PTO for hybrid operation. We also offer complete propulsion-system packages, including gearboxes and propellers.
Our engines tackle emissions by using exhaust-gas-cleaning systems such as SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) to minimize NOx.

A wider range of services and automated systems has increased the demand for electricity on board fishing vessels and we supply complete generating sets to secure reliable and economical power generation and distribution. Modern auxiliary engines run on the same high-viscosity fuel grades as main engines to maximize economy. Overall installation costs can be minimised by using compact modular fuel treatment systems, available in standard sizes.

We also offer a comprehensive, service network in the form of MAN PrimeServ. PrimeServ is a service organisation with a global reach and contactable 24/7 to maximize engine availability. As a part of its service offerings, PrimeServ offers optional online services for optimized maintenance planning.
