MAN Truck & Bus Esbjerg leads the way with green energy

MAN Truck & Bus in Esbjerg specialises in customised trucks and workshop services. They are now also certified as an installation partner for solar panels on trucks

As the first department in Denmark, MAN Truck & Bus in Esbjerg has been certified as an installation partner for Green Energy/ solar panels products retailed through EUROPART. A certification that they benefit from themselves.

Curiosity and network lead the way 

Besides building trucks, MAN Truck and Bus in Esbjerg offer normal workshop service. A desire from the company to optimize the reliability of their servicevans and a chat with a former employee, who is now employed by Green Energy/ led to the department being the first of the six departments in Denmark to be a certified installation partner. As a part of the certification, a 220Wp solar panel set has been installed on their servicevan – a MAN-TGE 3.180.  

Drawing on 44 years of experience 

The company was founded in 1979 and employs 255 employees in Denmark across 6 departments with a total fleet of 24 service vehicles and servicevan. During the installation and certification, which was managed by Stine Nielsen from Green Energy/, she met Klaus Hakon Jensen, workshop manager at MAN Truck & Bus Esbjerg, for a chat about why they have chosen to have solar cells installed on their servicevan and become a certified installation partner.

We find that there is a great deal of potential in offering our customers to have solar cells installed. Furthermore, the installation on top of our service car supports extra power in the servicevan. Our servicevan is equipped with a 6 kW battery package, and the solar cells always keep it charged. Not only does it provide extra reliability, but it also saves fuel.”   

We congratulate MAN Truck & Bus Esbjerg on the installation and welcome them into the large international installation partner community.
