Marketing Prize for MWM Modular Power Plant

MWM wins marketing prize for the market launch of its Modular Power Plant

Caterpillar Energy Solutions GmbH was recognized on November 7, 2014 with the Rhine-Neckar Marketing Prize in the category of "Large Enterprises", and won over the renowned panel of judges with its market strategy for the new Modular Power Plant (MPP) using a "Lego modular approach to power plants.” This power plant is a proprietary development consisting of pre-fabricated components, facilitating quick assembly without any major on-site construction measures. As a result, decentralized electricity and heat can be quickly made available even in lesser-developed regions. MWM stands out with its "Lego modular approach to power plants."

The marketing prize is considered the most important indicator for innovative marketing concepts, campaigns and solutions from Germany's Rhine-Neckar region. It is awarded in four categories to companies or institutions who stand out thanks to clever marketing strategies. The event treated the audience to an impressive look into what is now a 50-year history of the club, along with insights into marketing in general.

This year, the jury selected the four winners from 20 ingenious ideas. It was not an easy decision for the panel, made up of renowned business stakeholders as well as political and academic leaders from the region. Through their high-quality concepts, the award-winning companies demonstrated just how outstanding the level of marketing is from the Rhine-Neckar region.
