3i acquires Deutz Power Systems

MWM Prüfstand

Rebranding to MWM GmbH

New test bench for MWM TBG 632 V12/V16 gas generator sets

Following the spinoff of the MWM business, Deutz founded Deutz Power Systems GmbH & Co. KG (DPS), which was sold to the UK investment company 3i Group PLC (Investors in Industries) in 2007. In 2008, MWM was rebranded to its original name and continued operations under the name MWM GmbH. The company gradually phased out the production of diesel engines in order to focus even more on the market for highly efficient gas generator sets and complete plants (containers). For this business alignment, new, modern test benches were set up for gas generator sets.
