MWM Gas Engines, Gensets, Cogeneration, CHP Plants, Combined Heat and Power
MWM is one of the world’s leading brands in the market segment of highly efficient, eco-friendly cogeneration plants for decentralized energy generation with combined heat and power (CHP). Operating under the name Caterpillar Energy Solutions, the Mannheim-based company founded 1871 by Carl Benz looks back on its MWM brand with 150 years of experience in the development and optimization of gas engines and power generators for natural gas, biogas and other special gases.
MWM Gas Engines and Gensets – Output. Reliability. Economy. For Your Success.
The MWM product portfolio comprises gas engines and gensets in the output range from 400 kWel to 4,500 kWel. In this way, it is possible to set up power plants with an output of up to 100,000 kWel and more.
The gas engines can be operated with various types of gas, such as natural gas, shale gas, mine gas, biogas, landfill gas, sewage gas, and syngas. They are designed for maximum electrical and thermal efficiency, low operating and service costs, and high reliability and availability. Thus they achieve efficiency of over 90 percent.
Cogeneration Power Plants: Produce Your Own Electricity and Heat – Independent and Eco-Friendly MWM Cogeneration Systems
A cogeneration power plant is a modular combined heat and power (CHP) plant solution for the generation of electricity and heat, which is preferably operated on the site where the electricity and heat are consumed, yet it can also feed useful heat into a district heating network. The advantage of combined heat and power over the separate production of electrical power and heat lies in the significantly higher utilization of the primary energy.
MWM stands for highly-efficient and eco-friendly combined heat and power (CHP) plants for distributed power generation, and has over 150 years of experience in the development and optimization of gas engines for natural gas, biogas and other special gases.
