MAN PrimeServ, C.C. JENSEN to Install Lube-Oil Units on Marine, Power Retrofits

Published on: 

The companies signed a cooperation agreement for the use of C.C. JENSEN’s lube-oil units within MAN PrimeServ’s marine and power retrofit segments.

MAN Energy Solutions and C.C. JENSEN (CJC) have recently signed a cooperation agreement to promote and sell CJC products under the umbrella of MAN PrimeServ, MAN Energy’s after-sales division. At a ceremony in Copenhagen, Denmark, Kim Kjaer signed the agreement on behalf of CJC and Serghei Nastas represented MAN Energy Solutions.

“C.C. JENSEN and MAN Energy Solutions have had a strong technical cooperation for decades,” said Kim Kjaer, Global Segment Manager, C.C. JENSEN. “A significant result of this relationship has been the development of solutions that have assisted our mutual customers in achieving clean and dry oil, in the process improving the reliability of oil and equipment, as well as reducing energy consumption and CO2 footprints. As a natural next step, we now add the mutual promotion of these CJC solutions.”


PrimeServ Omnicare is responsible for helping the PrimeServ network extend its service portfolio beyond the standard MAN Energy scope by closing global agreements with OEMs. The cooperation agreement aligns with MAN Energy’s strategy to transition large energy sectors to net-zero as the lube-oil filtration system will improve the carbon intensity indicator (CII) rating of marine vessels.

MAN Energy Solutions will leverage its access to the marine and power markets to use CJC’s lube-oil units for an integrated decarbonization strategy. The new agreement applies globally with exceptions in Brazil, Japan, South Korea, and Norway, and CJC will offer local support to customers and MAN Energy. It will focus on the implementation of lube-oil filtration systems in the marine and power sectors.

CJC’s lube-oil filtration system provides an alternative to conventional separators for cleaning oil, which saves cost through technology that maintains lube oil in two- and four-stroke engines. It also lowers the environmental impact by reducing energy and oil consumption. The filtration system fulfills OEM demands for cleanliness and delivers a significant reduction in fuel consumption and an improved CII rating.

“Our vision at PrimeServ Omnicare is to help our customers reduce the CO2 footprint of their existing assets by offering technical solutions from our partners that are simple to install and operate, and which have an immediate impact – both on the environment and customer budgets,” said Serghei Nastas, Head of PrimeServ Omnicare, MAN Energy Solutions. “With the C.C. JENSEN lube-oil filtration system, we have found such a solution. As part of a pilot phase during 2023, the market showed great interest in its solution and I look forward to continuing our good cooperation with C.C. JENSEN."

The motivation for retrofitting this oil filtration technology includes 97% in energy savings, up to 60% reduction in oil consumption, and 99% reduction in lube-oil sludge.
