Is the universe expanding? What happened in the fractions of a second after the big bang? How can we resource our energy requirements in the future? For scientists there will always be open questions - the start points for all research.
In answering them, scientific institutes all over the world find MAN Diesel & Turbo a reliable partner. As experts for large technical plants we develop and build in close collaboration with scientists precisely that apparatus that they will use to lift the veil and solve the puzzles.
For realisation of large-scale experiments we develop plant of sizes never previously constructed: Steel structures of carbon steel or stainless steel with diameters of 15 m and all-up weights of 6,500 mto, 10 m long flow condensers for exhaust gases at 3,000 °C, or high and ultra-high vacuum chambers of anti-magnetic stainless steel whose exceptionally complex structure can be measured only by using a laser tracker. In this field, special solutions are the rule, requiring not only enormous technical knowledge but also creativity and willingness to accept a certain degree of risk.
We are proud to have contributed as a partner of science to the success of such outstanding projects as the CERN particle accelerator ring in Geneva, the Munich II research reactor, the ESO Very Large Telescope, and the Wendelstein 7-X Fusion-Experiment currently under construction by the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics.
