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). 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.
