Delhi Land Finance (DLF), India

DLF had been looking for custom-tailored energy solutions for five different buildings. The answer was the use of coolant heat for the generation of heating water and the use of the exhaust gas heat in absorption refrigerators for cooling.


The energy supply center of the GLOBALFOUNDRIES chip factory in Dresden, Germany, opted for the MWM engines because of the high quality of the electricity produced by this system.

Munich Airport, Germany

Two TCG 2032 V16 units were added to the existing MWM engines. Using trigeneration, 7.44 MW of electricity, 8.7 MW of heat, and 5.3 MW of cold are produced and used to supply buildings and hangars.
