Rheinmetall large-bore pistons on board of the Hurtigruten line
Famous Hurtigruten ships are constantly being modernized. At least six of the Norwegian company’s ships will be converted to run on gas – and not just LNG, but also environmentally friendly biogas. Present onboard are large-bore pistons from Rheinmetall.
Late last year, Jörg Grotendorst became the latest member of the Executive Board of Rheinmetall, with special responsibility for the automotive divisions. Grotendorst, now 51 and a graduate in Electrical Engineering, has spent his whole life pondering protons and electrons and positive and negative poles, and how to control and regulate them – a subject that has never ceased to fascinate him.
Apart from locations in Michigan and Wisconsin, the automotive divisions are also present in the south of the USA. Fountain Inn, near Greenville, South Carolina, is home to another site of the technology group in good automobile company.
