The foundation of the company was in 1977. In 1996, this became Ingenieurbüro Böning GmbH, which was renamed Böning Automationstechnologie GmbH & Co. KG in 2003. From the very beginning, an essential focus of all company activities was the development and production of electronic devices as well as systems for ship automation. In the meantime, a good 100 employees work in Ganderkesee on almost 4000 m² of office, production and storage space, of which about 20 are engineers in development alone. One of the concepts for success is based on close cooperation with customers, resulting in practical and reliable devices and systems. A positive synergy from this results in a continuous expansion of Böning's competence. At this point, the integrated fault indication systems, which are used in almost all areas of ships, should be mentioned in particular. Safety relevant devices and systems are usually type-certified according to DNV GL SE and other classification societies

Neander Shark GmbH is an innovative engineering company with a team of 31 employees that has been marketing the first turbo diesel outboard engine with double crankshaft technology in small series since the beginning of 2018. The NEANDER Dtorque turbodiesel sets new standards in the development of diesel and especially outboard engines: It is the world's first turbodiesel outboard under 100 hp and features an innovative double crankshaft. By generating opposing forces, our dual crankshaft design eliminates virtually all of the vibrations and oscillations that would otherwise occur at the steering axle, which would make it difficult to use such a small and powerful two-cylinder diesel outboard. Our 800 cm3 two-cylinder torque engine generates 50hp at the propeller shaft. But the decisive factor for commercial applications from fishing to harbour patrols and charter services is the high torque: with 111Nm at 2.500rpm the Dtorque even surpasses 70hp four-stroke petrol outboards and provides the necessary thrust with moderate fuel consumption (10 - 12 litres per hour).
