MWM about the new TCG 3016 –

efficiency goes digital

Boasting the highest electrical efficiency and long operating hours until the general overhaul, the TCG 3016 reaches an unprecedented profitability level in its class.

Tobias Wedemeier, Product Line Manager

With the new integrated power plant control TPEM, the TCG 3016 gensets are prepared for the digital future.

Melf Thomsen, Project Supervisor

The modified combustion chamber increases the efficiency, reduces knock sensitivity and pollutant emissions, and cuts the service requirements.

Michael Gehbauer, Product Support

The TPEM software and hardware controls the engine and the alternator as well as the entire power plant – for full performance and maximum reliability.

Michael Dressler, Product Line Manager

With the optimized piston group and the expanded lubricant volume that has been adapted to the engine, we have significantly reduced the lubricant operating costs.

Florian Kahl, Development Engineer Mechanics

Through close, interdisciplinary teamwork, we deliver solutions that fulfill all requirements despite increasingly complex framework conditions.

Dhana Jauer, Project Coordinator

The flanged generator set design and the associated vibration decoupling of the base frame substantially reduce the strain on numerous components.

Tobias Marnet, Project Manager Engineering

The new TCG 3016 represents a highly robust package that ensures top performance in terms of electrical efficiency and lubricant consumption in its class.

Dr. Markus Lüft, Platform Manager TCG 3016
