The film was produced in cooperation with the production partner Motionplan. The event and film agency from Mannheim, an expert in the field of corporate films, already collaborated with the company on the production of the documentary film 60 MW Around the World (World Media Award 2010 Silver Medal).

“The perfect medium”

The resulting film footage, combined with animated 3D graphics, illustrates the configuration and installation of a Modular Power Plant. These modular system power stations are a proprietary development which can be quickly built by means of pre-fabricated components and without major construction measures in only 12 days.

The roughly three-minute film shows that the compact Modular Power Plants from Caterpillar Energy Solutions can be set up practically anywhere on the globe, thus offering quick availability of power and heat, especially in economically underdeveloped regions. “The video is the perfect medium to demonstrate the capability in supplying dependable, eco-friendly heat and power from a Modular Power Plant,” said Willy Schumacher, Managing Director of Caterpillar Energy Solutions.
