36th Propulsion & Emissions conference begins
MAN Diesel & Turbo hosted the welcome reception for the 36th Motorship Propulsion & Emissions conference on the evening of 20 May.
The conference itself gets underway on 21 May, at the Kempinski Atlantic Hotel in Hamburg, but as a taster delegates and speakers were treated to a convivial evening at MAN Diesel & Turbo PrimeServ in Hamburg port. Among the machinery and engine parts, including a number of large crankshafts which took on a somewhat artistic quality under blue spotlights, those present enjoyed a ‘flying buffet’ of Hamburg specialities, a supply of beverages and live music.
Welcoming the conference to PrimeServ, senior vice-president Dr-Ing Tilmann Greiner outlined the history of the site, which dated back to 1939 when it was established by MAN Augsburg for production of engines for the adjacent naval shipyard, building MV40/46 engines for submarines. After WW2 it became a repair shop for MAN small engines and turbines, then after refurbishment of the production halls in the 1950s it became an MAN service centre, and during the 1970s the facility was used for assembly of medium speed engines. It became PrimeServ Hamburg in 2007.
