- In 1980, MAN acquired the Burmeister & Wain Danish shipyard and diesel engine producer. Though engine production at Christianshavn was later discontinued in 1987, successful engine programs were rolled out. At Teglholmen in 1988 a spare parts and key components production factory was established as was an R&D Centre at the same site in 1992. Though all Copenhagen operations were consolidated at Teglholmen in 1994 and the last volume production unit at the B&W Shipyard was delivered in 1996, in 2000 MAN B&W Diesel two-stroke diesel engines had over 70% market share, with a substantial number of MC-line engines on order.
- The electronically controlled line of ME diesel two-stroke engines was added in 2002 with a maximum cylinder bore of 108 cm. MAN B&W Diesel, Denmark, employed approximately 2,200 at the end of 2003 and had 100 GW, or more than 8000 MC engines, in service or on order by 2004.
- In 2006 the MAN Diesel AG established a common European corporation named MAN Diesel SE (Societas Europaea).
- Copenhagen, 22 February 2006: The first diesel engine with more than 75,000 kW (101,000 hp) has gone into service. MAN B&W Diesel licensee Hyundai Heavy Industries in Korea has built the 12K98MC with 75,790 kW (101,640 hp).
- The engine is installed in the first of a series of container ships with a capacity over 9,000 teu being built for Greek owner Costamare. The vessels will be chartered to COSCON (COSCO Container Lines) in China.
- In 2010, MAN Diesel and MAN Turbo were merged to form MAN Diesel & Turbo.
In 2000, MAN Diesel (then known as MAN B&W Diesel) acquired Alstom Engines from GEC. This included the former diesel businesses of English Electric, Mirrlees Blackstone, Napier & Son, Paxman and Ruston.
Mirrlees Blackstone Limited was formed on June 1, 1969 by the merger of Mirrlees National Limited (formerly Mirrlees, Bickerton and Day) and Blackstone & Company Limited. All were, at the time, members of the Hawker Siddeley Group.
