Speech by Dipl.-Ing. Claus Bruestle at the 26th Aachen Colloquium Automotive and Engine Technology

Our CTO and Member of the Board Neander Motors AG and managing director of Neander Shark GmbH, Claus Bruestle, had the honour of giving a speech on October 10th at the 26th Aachen Colloquium on the subject “THE FIRST TURBODIESEL OUTBOARD WITH TWIN CRANKSHAFT TECHNOLOGY”.

1,800 engine experts – mainly from the automotive industry – from all over the world spent two days in Aachen to gather information on current developments at the colloquium. As part of an accompanying trade exhibition, some technical innovations were also presented.

And, of course, NEANDER was also present – and “threefold”!

Claus Bruestle’s promise, made there in 2013, had to be honoured by presenting our outboard engine once again in Aachen to conclude the development and start series production of our outboard engine. This has succeeded in impressive form. In particular, the comments and the respect and recognition of many renowned companies and individuals have shown us how successful the work of the last few years has been.

The pictures below give a small impression of how we – Neander – presented ourselves there:

First of all, the lecture by Claus Bruestle “THE FIRST TURBODIESEL OUTBOARD WITH TWIN CRANKSHAFT TECHNOLOGY” on Tuesday, 10.10.2017. I can report without exaggeration that Claus Bruestles’ lecture was rated as the most professional and successful lecture at this colloquium, just like in 2013. This is not only my personal opinion but has been reported to us several times by renowned experts without being asked.

Secondly, we presented a motor physically on site at the FEV stand. The presence of this engine on the stand came with a reminder of a live demonstration of an engine on a boat just outside the main entrance. This live demonstration of our Kiel test boat with a running engine (the second one was shown for demonstration purposes without cowling) showed very impressively what NVH means for our engine. Since the weather was also kind to us, we were able to welcome numerous interested parties on both days directly in front of the main entrance to the congress center, who could literally put their fingers on it.

The numerous written responses we have received to date show that the enthusiasm is lasting.

In sum an absolute success for our company.
