MAN and Makita strengthen ties with three-year deal

MAN Energy Solutions‘ service subsidiary, MAN PrimeServ, and engine maker Makita Corporation have signed a three-year deal to strenthen their cooperation. Their aim is to offer the best possible service on high-pressure selective catalytic reduction systems (SCR-HP) for MAN two-stroke engines built under license by Makita.

The SCR-HP, used on MAN B&W two-stroke engines for IMO Tier III compliance, is the smallest and most compact of its kind. It has low operating costs and offers good fuel efficiency, MAN explained, because the existing exhaust gas temperature is high enough not to require an additional burner.

MAN PrimeServ’s head of Global Spare-Part Sales, Lukas Wengel, commented: "Following its successful class certification in 2020 and the increasing importance of Tier III environmental regulations, we find that more and more vessels are entering service with MAN Energy Solutions’ SCR-HP systems; indeed we have sold around 80 already.

“I am certain that this new spare-part, strategic cooperation between the MAN PrimeServ service network and Makita Corporation will be of great benefit to owners and operators of SCR-HP systems on Makita-produced engines,” he added.

The SCR-HP is available in six frame sizes, covering engines up to 25 MW with one reactor for the entire exhaust stream.
