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.
COP 23: Shipping Industry Demands a “Maritime Energy Transition”
12.11.2017 VDMA: No Alternatives to International Climate Protection - Demands for Increased Commitment from IMO - Shipping Must Be Emission-Free in the Long Term
Implementation of the MCP Directive behind schedule in most EU member states
11.11.2017 The European Medium Combustion Plant Directive on the limitation of emissions from medium combustion plants (EU 2015/2193 – MCPD) dated November 25, 2015 entered into force upon being published in the Official Journal of the European Union.
The development of CO2-neutral technologies needs the right framework conditions
18.10.2017 At the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, the community of states is seeking to drive forward the full implementation of the global climate treaty. This represents a real opportunity for European industry – provided that the right framework conditions are in place.
Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure calls for ships to be upgraded/modified to run on LNG
29.09.2017 As part of the German government’s mobility and fuel strategy, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure is calling for the use of LNG (liquefied natural gas) as an eco-friendly fuel for ships and barges.
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.

POWER-GEN Europe is the international trade fair and conference for e. g. power plants and decentral power generation. The next event will be held from the 19th to 21st June 2018 in Vienna and will broaden its scope under the new brand “Electrify Europe”.
In 2016, more than 2,200 exhibitors from 66 nations displayed themselves on more than 90,000 square metres of exhibition space. And with around 50,000 industry visitors coming from 124 countries the leading maritime trade fair welcomed its most international range of visitors ever. The coming SMM will take place from September 4th to 7th 2018 in Hamburg.
