This is MAN Diesel & Turbo's Norwegian headache

For years MAN Diesel & Turbo was tampering with data related to its engines' fuel consumption. Several cases have been settled with deceived customers, but one carrier has yet to settle.

MAN Diesel & Turbo has knowingly manipulated fuel consumption data from marine diesel engines in at least 92 cases in the period from 2006 to 2011. According to MAN Diesel & Turbo, the company has managed to settle cases with all affected customers except for one - Norwegian gas tanker carrier I.M. Skaugen, which has ongoing lawsuits again MAN for around USD 50 million in total.

"In short, we ask only that MAN acts transparently and informs us what they have done to our engines, and compensate us for our losses. No more, no less," Skaugen's COO and Executive VP Tejre Ørehagen tells ShippingWatch.
