The new TCG 3016 gensets were installed by VG Diesel- und Gasmotoren-Service GmbH. This company is also responsible for the re- gular maintenance of the three biogas cogeneration power plants. Managing Director Vinzenz Guggemos is convinced of the reliability of the gensets and emphasizes: “Usually, biogas cogeneration power plants do not have any backup gensets. Therefore, the operators depend on the hassle-free operation of the engines. The downtimes of the cogeneration power plants of BG Biogas Service amount to less than 3 percent, i.e. about 11 days a year. This already includes the maintenance work that is done after 2,000 operating hours.“
Dräger is a globally leading enterprise that delivers technology for life. Recently, the Lübeck-based company has come even more to the fore with its medical technology products and services. During the coronavirus pandemic, there was a great demand especially for the ventilators produced by Dräger. The new MWM gas generator set – which boasts best-in-class electrical and thermal efficiency – went live in early June 2020 on the Moislinger Allee premises and continues to ensure hassle-free power and heat supply at Dräger.

The pellet plant's control energy power plant, which runs with three MWM TCG 2032B V16 gas engines, is considered to be an outstanding example of eco-friendly, distributed energy generation. In recognition of its high energy efficiency and flexibility, "Energie & Management" designated the cogeneration power plant as "Cogeneration Power Plant of the Month" of March.
The new cogeneration power plant of the biogas plant in Oberspiesheim in the Nuremberg metropolitan area is equipped with an MWM TCG 2020 V12 gas engine. The plant with flexible operation covers about 60 percent of the total annual heat demand of the neighboring nursery.
The latest MWM TCG 3016 gas genset runs as a field-test plant in Bad Oldesloe. The cogeneration power plant with the electrical output of 800 kW and the thermal output of 826 kW reaches an overall efficiency of 88.1%.
The biogas plant runs on a 50/50 mix of cattle manure from the farm's dairy cows and corn grown on the fields. In addition to the TCG 3016, a smaller MWM genset with an output of 400 kWel is installed.
Reference Case Energieversorgung Nordhausen GmbH
Modernization to Ensure Stability of Supply: Engine replacement with four modern MWM gas engines with a total output of 8,000 kW. For the four new MWM TCG 2020 V20 engines, a comprehensive maintenance agreement has been concluded with the MWM service center in Erfurt. In this way, MWM engineers and EVN ensure the reliable and hassle-free operation of Nordhausen’s power and heat supply.
Reference Case Bausch + Lomb Waterford, Ireland
With its cogeneration plant equipped with the powerful MWM TCG 2032 V12 genset, Bausch + Lomb covers 65 percent of its electricity needs and 91 percent of its heat needs and cuts annual operating costs by up to €1 Million.
Reference Case Messe München GmbH
The Munich City Utilities opted for the MWM TCG 2020 V16 genset, an engine type that delivers more efficiency, reduced emissions, improved profitability, and longer maintenance intervals. The modernized cogeneration power plant yields 1.5 MW of electrical energy and more than 1.6 MW of heat energy and enables carbon savings of about 630 t/year thanks to the efficient engine technology.
Reference Case Löberitz BIOgasfarm Project
Since it was installed, the biogas plant at Löberitz has also served as a test plant for the process technology used by MWM. Components are tested under real conditions and measurements taken.
