CIMAC Mourns Passing Of Axel Kettmann

Axel Kettmann, who served as CIMAC’s vice president and was senior vice president of ABB Turbo Systems, has died after an illness. He was 62.

According to CIMAC, Kettmann was particularly committed to the decarbonization of shipping and supported the idea of a maritime energy transition, championing the establishment of the new GHG strategy group. He was a respected and valued member of the organization and his death is a significant loss to the CIMAC family, the organization said.

“The years of intensive cooperation were marked by his ideas, his joie de vivre, his wit – it is a great loss that this has now ended so suddenly,” said Peter Müller-Baum, CIMAC secretary general.

CIMAC is the global non-profit Association of the Internal Combustion Machinery Industry.

“Axel has been a strong supporter of CIMAC, helping to shape our organization for many years through his valuable inputs and ideas,” said Klaus Heim, president of CIMAC. “We have lost a board member and a friend whom we will deeply miss.”
