08.01.2016 The industrial engines of the manufacturers represented in the VDMA can be divided into two categories: compact engines, primarily for driving mobile machinery, and large engines, for supplying energy and driving ships and rolling stock.
Engines for generating electricity and heat
In vehicles, ships or as engines for stationary energy conversion, internal combustion engines have been used in millions of applications for over 100 years.
Engines in mobile machinery – driving the economy
Do you think sufficient nutrition is a necessity? Do you wish to go to work on asphalted roads? Do you not want to live in a tent? Then you too are dependent on mobile machinery. For there is scarcely a single area of our lives that would function without mobile machinery.
Ships – inconceivable without internal combustion engines
Whether for entertainment electronics from China, coffee from South America or vehicles from the US, global trade would not be possible without sea transport.
Manufacturers of large engines call for energy transformation in the maritime sector
04.04.2017 Manufacturers of large engines in the VDMA have acknowledged the resolutions of the world climate summit in Paris. They intend to play an active role in replacing fossil fuels with more environmentally-friendly forms of energy in the shipping industry.
The fully revised “Emissions legislation for diesel and gas engines” is now available in printed form and as a PDF file. The brochure contains a clear and concise overview of the most important legislation and limits on emissions from diesel and gas engines in ships and boats, stationary power plants, mobile machinery and trains.
Here you find company and product information about the members of the Association Engines and Systems.

VDMA brochure "Efficient, environmentally friendly and always available"
At a political evening in Berlin on 26 June, VDMA engine manufacturers will continue the dialogue on climate protection with politicians and other areas of the maritime sector. The aim is to secure the future of commercial shipping while simultaneously achieving climate targets. The engine industry wants to help shape the path towards CO2 neutrality by 2050.
