Mannheim, December 20, 2019
In 2019, Caterpillar Energy Solutions continued to focus on innovative gas engines, such as the new TCG 3020, and turnkey solutions for distributed energy supply with CHP plants as well as on the development of sustainable energy concepts. Additionally, the company is proud of the many awards it has received.
Caterpillar Energy Solution Labeled One of the Best Employers and Again as “Top Traditional Company”
According to a survey conducted by “FOCUS-MONEY”, Caterpillar Energy Solutions is one of Germany’s top traditional companies in the engineering category, with an overall score of 2.64. The study shows which companies with a long-standing tradition have best adapted to the changed market, social, and environmental conditions and have achieved distinction in the market. According to the study, innovative drive is a key success factor for traditional companies.
With a total score of 2.89, a survey conducted by the German “DIE WELT” newspaper awarded Caterpillar Energy Solutions the above-average label “high employer image” in the category of regional businesses. The regional ranking of Germany’s best Baden-Württemberg-based employers comprises 832 businesses. The survey is based on regional and national evaluations of the image and attractiveness of German companies.
Sustainable Energy Concepts for Enterprises
2019 again saw the rollout of numerous corporate projects for the replacement of CHP plant engines with gas engines for distributed energy supply and an improved energy and environmental balance.
For the cogeneration power plant of WUN Pellets GmbH in Wunsiedel, Germany, which is connected to the pellet plant, the company installed three highly efficient MWM TCG 2032B V16 gas engines with an electrical output of 4.5 MW. The gas engines, which are fueled with climate-friendly natural gas, ensure the distributed energy supply with electrical and thermal energy. Additionally, they supply some 40,000 households in Upper Franconia with power. “Energie & Management” magazine designated the cogeneration power plant in Wunsiedel as “Cogeneration Power Plant of the Month” of March, highlighting its role in championing climate-friendly, distributed energy generation.
The modular power plants (MPP) stand for innovative, trend-setting distributed energy generation. The first local MPP set up in Chelyabinsk, one of the largest regions in the Ural region in Russia, by MWM distributor MKS Group of Companies went live in 2019. The modular power plant runs with four MWM TCG 2032B V16 gas engines in an output range of 4,500 kWel. The power plants installed in the area can thus deliver a total output of 18 MWel for the close-by mine.
Intermedia-globe Silver Award 2019 for Product Video
At the WorldMediaFestival in Hamburg, Germany, Caterpillar Energy Solutions again received an intermedia-globe Silver Award. This time, it was the MWM product video for the newly developed TCG 3020 gas engine that qualified for the award. The professional jury was impressed by the product film’s technically sophisticated, modern, digital-style 3D animations.
Change in the Management of Caterpillar Energy Solutions
This year, the management of Caterpillar Energy Solutions in Germany was realigned. Since October 1, 2019, the company has been headed by Johan Masse as General Manager Order to Delivery, Uwe Sternstein as General Manager Service & Parts, and Peter Körner as HR Manager. The new management team of the Caterpillar Energy Solutions brands MWM and Cat comprises three experienced managers with long-standing expertise in the business segment.
Social Commitment and Support of Regional Projects
In 2019, Caterpillar Energy Solutions again promoted various social projects and campaigns in the metropolitan Rhine-Neckar region.
At this year’s SRH Rhine-Neckar Twilight Marathon, Caterpillar Energy Solutions supported the approximately 10,000 runners as one of the main sponsors. The course of 42.195 km (26.22 mi) from Mannheim to Ludwigshafen and back took the runners past 100,000 enthusiastic spectators.
Moreover, Caterpillar Energy Solutions has already supported the Pediatric Oncology Unit of the University Medical Center Mannheim for a number of years. The donations to the medical center are used for various research projects, such as the project “Brain metastases of pediatric carcinoma”. With its donation of €15,000, Caterpillar Energy Solutions contributes to the treatment and of childhood cancer and the research of effective cures.
Caterpillar Energy Solutions is proud of its achievements in 2019. Again, the company has demonstrated that innovation, trend-setting developments, and sustainable energy concepts can go hand in hand.
