MAN Diesel & Turbo, which is owned by Volkswagen, is accused of having done just like its owner, Volkswagen, in connection with the diesel engines, which the company produces. The indictment says that the engines consume more fuel than they have shown in a test.

The Norwegian shipping company I. M. Skaugen has sued MAN Diesel & Turbo for 400 million Norwegian kroner. The company bought the ship engines of MAN and believes that MAN has cheated with software engines at a test which showed that they used less fuel than they actually do.

The fraud was reported at MAN Diesel & Turbo's factory in Germany and as such has nothing to do with the Danish branch.

I. M. Skaugen has as its focus area in the transport of LPG and LNG, and has a fleet of advanced gas carriers with a capacity from 6,000 to 12,000 cubic meters.
