The North American subsidiary of the traditional company MWM from Mannheim, Germany, recently received an order for four engines for two biogas plants (“Double B” and “Swager Farms”) of the Exergy Group in Idaho. As announced by Exergy at the AgStar Conference in Boise, Idaho, in May, MWM was selected for the supply of the engines and for the maintenance of two biogas plants of Exergy New Energy, the biogas division of Exergy. Explaining the decision in favor of MWM engines, Leslie White, President of Exergy New Energy’s Biogas Division, says: “Our ability to successfully deliver energy technology solutions to meet the demands of the renewable energy market is dependent on the efficiency and reliability of our partners. MWM offers the highest efficiency and reliability in the biogas segment.
