Wärtsilä and MAN in new research collaboration

Wärtsilä and MAN Diesel & Turbo have formed a new collaboration aimed at reducing emissions from ships. The collaboration will also involve other European companies and universities.

The project includes several full-scale prototypes and shipboard demonstrators that will speed the development of commercially available products," say the two companies in a joint press release.
