Under various company names, MAN Diesel & Turbo Australia Pty Ltd has supported engines in the Australian region since early last century. 

Serving Australia since the pre-Diesel era

The first engine associated with a predecessor company arrived in Australia in 1894, three years before Rudolf Diesel built his first successful diesel engine in Augsburg, Germany (at the factory which is now the headquarters of MAN Diesel & Turbo).

The engine was an Ackroyd-Stuart oil engine manufactured by Richard Hornsby & Sons Ltd of Grantham, UK, and it was installed in a South Australian sawmill where it had a long and successful life. 

1912 marks first MAN diesel engine Down Under

The first diesel engine from MAN arrived in Australia in 1912. This was a 4-cylinder type ALV 49 producing 400 hp, weighing some 35 tons and is reportedly still in operational condition in Cairns. 

Establishing a service capability

With around one in every two ships having MAN engines, MAN B&W developed customer support capabilities in Sydney, including engineering, fuel injection servicing and turbocharger repairs.

Company Formation

In June 2000, the MAN B&W Sydney support organisation merged with the former ALSTOM Australia Engines division to form MAN B&W Diesel Australia. In 2006 the name was simplified to MAN Diesel Australia. In 2010 MAN Turbo merged with MAN Diesel and MAN Diesel was renamed MAN Diesel & Turbo. MAN Diesel & Turbo Australia is 100% owned by the European-based MAN Diesel & Turbo SE.

From single engines to complete power stations

After many years of operation across Australasia and the South Pacific, our list of engine installations has grown to over 1,300.

MAN Diesel & Turbo Australia has the resources and skills to provide expert support for a broad range of diesel, dual fuel and gas engines for power generation and marine propulsion.

And over the past few years the company has built a reputation for the construction of large turnkey power station solutions. Recent examples are based on the impressive MAN 51/60 Dual Fuel engine.

Beyond Diesel - MAN Group history in Australia

The broader MAN Group has been active in Australia in commercial vehicles, bulk materials handling, printing and compressor technology for many years and even submitted a design for the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
