Friedrichshafen, 2 September 2008. The Tognum Group has launched today the new brand, “mtu Onsite Energy”, under which its decentralized energy generation solutions will be marketed in the future. The Tognum subsidiaries involved in decentralized energy generation – MDE, CFC Solutions, Katolight and mtu Power Generation – will be brought together under the umbrella of the mtu Onsite Energy brand as of September 2008. Those operations are part of the Tognum Business Unit Onsite Energy & Components.
“The energy sector is one of the main pillars of our growth strategy. We are now creating another strong brand based on the same values as the mtu sister brand: Leadership both in innovative strength and technology, as well as providing dedicated customer support and commitment by way of tailored system solutions”, Volker Heuer, Chairman of the Executive Board of Tognum AG, confidently predicts. The product range of the multinational propulsion and energy systems specialist encompasses diesel generator sets for emergency power, base and peak-load duty as well as plants for cogeneration of heat and power (CHP) based on gas engines, fuel cells and gas turbines. The term onsite energy refers to decentralized energy systems that are independent of the national or regional power grid and supply electricity and heat to a specific site or facility.
The mtu Onsite Energy products are manufactured and in some cases also developed at the mtu facilities in Friedrichshafen/Germany, Detroit/USA and Suzhou/China, and also in Augsburg, Ottobrunn near Munich/Germany and Mankato/USA. Christof von Branconi, member of the Tognum Executive Board and responsible for the Business Unit Onsite Energy & Components, says about the new brand, “mtu Onsite Energy underlines our position as one of the world’s leading innovators in development and supply of energy-efficient, clean and economical decentralized energy systems.” And he adds, “We offer our clients customized solutions for generating electricity, heat and cooling anywhere and any time. And always taking account of the globally rising demand for energy.”
