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.
