MWM in Russia
From Mannheim to Moscow
MWM has been active in Russia for more than 10 years now – and has had a local office in Moscow since 2011. Five employees are working in the "House of German Economy” on the expansion and new acquisitions of numerous MWM projects in Russia.
With an installed total capacity of 600 MW throughout the country and a market share of more than 30 percent according to the latest marketing studies, MWM is commanding a lead position as Russia's most successful importer of gas engines in the output range of 1 to 5 MW.
MWM's Core Competence: Greenhouse Applications
Particularly greenhouse applications are the most important energy solutions in addition to gas applications. In this segment, the MWM brand has been able to achieve market shares of up to 50 percent in the past few years. This vast growth is also due to the commitment of the Russian government, which is promoting the Russian fruit and vegetable harvest in the Russian domestic market with development programs for specialized cultivation. Here, select commercially-funded cultivation projects are being subsidized by the ministry of agriculture. All in all, greenhouse projects with an output of more than 100 MW have been installed across Russia over the past three years.
Focus on District Heating Applications
Other important energy projects are district heating applications. Several large and smaller projects have been launched in this sector all over Russia, including the largest with 24 MW. Industrial applications, such as those in the building materials industry, in metallurgy or in food processing are additional areas of focus. MWM gas engines are also deployed in the mining sector as well as the coal and steel industry – to the extent that natural gas is available in mines. Moreover, work is currently underway on infrastructure measures planned as part of the 2018 Soccer World Cup in Moscow as well as other sporting events in Russia.
The MWM brand stands for quality and innovative engineering performance in Russia as well, and thanks to its long-term commitment, it has earned a strong reputation as a leading supplier of efficient gas solutions for industrial and commercial enterprises. That is why more and more well-known Russian companies and organizations are trusting in MWM gas engines and gensets. The company's customers include the food giant Magnit, the Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company (UGMK), market leader in the ore and mining industry based in Yekaterinburg, along with companies in the cement and building materials sector.
