Globally Successful MWM TCG 2020 Gas Engine for Distributed Energy Generation: Popular in India as Well
Mannheim, April 18, 2018
Three of these highly popular TCG 2020 power gensets are in operation at Gujarat Fluorochemicals Limited (GFL), India's largest producer (by volume) of chloromethane, refrigerant, and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) in western India's federal state of Gujarat. Since 2005, the TCG 2020 gas engines have been supplying the chemical giant with cogenerated power and heat energy. Each of the MMW power gensets has thus run continually with natural gas for more than 100,000 hours.
To celebrate the occasion, the executive staff of Fluorochemicals invited the entire service team of Green Power, the Indian distributor of MWM gas engines, and Nazmi Tanis, the responsible Service Sales Manager from Mannheim.

The celebration took place in the Indian federal state of Gujarat. Upon return, Nazmi Tanis, who had traveled to India from Mannheim on behalf of Caterpillar Energy Solutions, expressed his satisfaction with the work of the Indian MWM partner Green Power and with the operation of the three MWM TCG 2020 V12 natural gas engines.
To ensure smooth operation and optimum efficiency of the combined heat and power (CHP) plant, Green Power has deployed a service team to the CHP plant to be able to react to even the most insignificant error messages of the cogeneration power plant around the clock.
