MWM GmbH - Gensets for Generating Energy
MWM GmbH is one of the world’s leading providers of highly efficient and eco-friendly energy generation plants. Based in Mannheim, Germany, the enterprise can look back on more than 140 years of experience in the development and optimisation of combustion engines for natural gas and special gases. Understanding of the value chain, engineering competenceand innovative drive make MWM a reliable partner who develops and produces solutions tailored to the individual needs of its customers.
Design, operation and maintenance of complete plants
The core competencies of MWM GmbH include the design, engineering, construction, operation, and maintenance of the complete plants. The innovative force and flexibility in handling customer wishes have made MWM GmbH a market leader in the field of engine-driven combined heat and power generation plants (CHP) as well as gas engine powered applications.
Customised power plant solutions
• Development of high-performance, state-of-the-art products, services and technologies for a decentralised power supply based on gas engines
• Focus on ecologically advanced solutions for generating “clean energy“
• Consulting, development and production of one-stop solutions customised for the individual customer and consulting services during operations
Global genset sales and service
With its sales and service network, the company is present on a global scale. This includes subsidiaries in 11 countries – the USA, Brazil, Canada, Spain, France, the Netherlands, Austria, Hungary, Singapore, China, and Australia – and 50 sales and service partners around the globe. Thus, the proximity of a qualified contact partner is guaranteed at all times and everywhere, both for new plants and for services. By means of individual maintenance agreements, reliable operation can be ensured during the entire lifecycle of the plantsGas engine gensetsWith their open combustion chamber, the technologically leading medium-size and large engines from MWM GmbH can be used in combined heat and power plants (CHP) to convert natural gas as well as any special gas types (such as sewage gas, landfill gas, biogas, mine gas, and coking gas) to electricity, heat or cooling. They have a higher efficiency than conventional engines of power generation plants, which means lower fuel consumption and lower emissions for customers.
MWM model series – innovation and constant development
After two years of constant development, the new version of the TCG 2032 (the largest MWM genset) was launched in January 2012. Optimized spark plugs and turbocharger technology have resulted in electrical efficiency of up to 44.2% with an output of 3,333 to 4,3000 kWe (in the V12 and V16 cylinder versions). Thanks to excellent operational experience, the period of operation up to the major overhaul has been increased from 64,000 hours to 80,000 hours.
After the successful launch of the TCG 2020K in April 2010, MWM extended its product range in the autumn of the same year to include the TCG 2020K1 system, which delivers up to 1,000 kWe. This new genset with electrical efficiency of up to 40% can be operated with natural gas under many different environmental conditions. It combines low operating and maintenance costs with the dynamic load response capabilities and robustness of the tried and tested TCG 2020K series. Customers are thus guaranteed an excellent price-performance ratio and a shorter amortization period. Furthermore, nano-coated intercoolers also improve operational safety when the intake air is of poor quality.
MWM recently launched an improved TCG 2016 C which can also be used with biogas. It is available for both 50 and 60 Hz. The TCG 2016 C series is available in the V8, V12 and V16 versions. Systematic optimization of the ignition and the TEM (Total Electronic Management) control system guarantee improved load balancing over all the cylinders. The anti-knocking controller has also undergone further improvement. The combination of optimized throttle valves, a new actuator for the gas mixer and a nano-coated intercooler ensures that the genset lasts even longer and is even less sensitive to external influences. Thanks to these improvement measures, the new genset achieves a maximum efficiency of 42.8% with biogas.
