MAN Engines scores significant success in Canada

A four-year collaboration between MAN Engines and Nova Scotia-based Eastcoast Power Systems has resulted in a surge in sales of both new engines and repower projects across the region. More than 100 six-, eight- and twelve-cylinder engines have been sold over the period, the companies said in a statement.

Eastcoast Power Systems, a division of Sansom Equipment, operates across all Atlantic provinces in Eastern Canada, including Newfoundland, Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and over to Quebec and Ontario. Engines have been supplied for various ship types including government vessels such as coastguard and patrol craft, and fishing boats. The company keeps a range of MAN engines and spare parts in stock across its 14 dealers and workshops to ensure a rapid response to customer enquiries. Demand for repower projects involving a combination of MAN engines and exhaust gas aftertreatment systems is increasing.

Bobby Evans, part owner of Sansom Equipment, commented: “The aftertreatment system from MAN Engines is an SCR-only system, and its modularity makes it very flexible to install. When paired with the compact MAN engines, this means improved payload and comfort for our customers.”

Ricardo Barbosa is managing director of MAN Engines & Components based in Pompano Beach, Florida, with responsibility for the Las Americas sales region. “Eastcoast Power Systems is a very committed partner with excellent knowledge of our products, a well-developed dealer and service network, and a strong focus on customers. For this they deserve great success in their region and my thanks.”
