MWM gas engines are built on a tradition of innovation for 150 years. Founded in 1871, the visionary and automotive pioneer Carl Benz accelerated a new era of gaseous fuelled engines.
Through cutting-edge technology and innovation, MWM has become one of the leading and world renowned in the field of gas engine generator technology and is owned by Caterpillar Inc.
The MWM range of gas engines are manufactured in Mannheim, Germany, and are designed for maximum electrical and thermal efficiency, low operating and service costs, and high reliability and availability. Thus, they achieve efficiencies of over 90%.
MWM gas engines are available from 400kW to 4,500kW electrical output and can operate on various gaseous fuel types including low carbon natural gas, renewable biogas, and are hydrogen ready.
MWM gas engines can be configured to produce a multitude of power scenarios as per the below:
Base-load generation, standby power, and balancing reserve peaking plants.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) or Cogeneration (Cogen).
Trigeneration or Combined Cooling Heat and Power (CCHP).
Recover CO2 through Quadgeneration.
A typical power plant is configured for continuous generation operating 8,000 per year, however, MWM gas engines can operate as flexible Peaking Plants to balance the fluctuating power demand within the local electricity network. MWM gas engines are also suited to produce electricity in parallel with the local electricity grid, operate in Island Mode configuration and Black Start operation.
