MAN Rollo helps KARLA ENERGIZE to achieve its goals: ‘MAN Rollo’s fast delivery times are important for our partnership’
KARLA was looking for a reliable partner and a supplier of engines in the 50-500 kWe power output range, along with spare parts. MAN Rollo turned out to be the best choice.
KARLA ENERGIZE in the Czech Republic provides flexible solutions for the design, packaging, delivery and maintenance of natural gas and biogas cogeneration and trigeneration units in a 40-4300 kWe power output range. KARLA works with partners that include MAN, MWM and MTU. KARLA focuses mainly on the Czech Republic, but it is now also starting to acquire projects from Poland, Slovakia, Russia, Belarus and other CIS countries.
‘We met Dennis Singeling of MAN Rollo in 2012 in Brno. From the start, we had a really good feeling about working together with MAN Rollo,’ says Vaclav Klein, head of Project Management at KARLA and responsible for acquiring new projects and partners. He ensures that his team reacts flexibly to any situation during the project preparation and realization stages to be certain that the project is delivered in good order. ‘We decided to use MAN engines because of their high quality and excellent technology. MAN Rollo is our business partner for the delivery of these engines. For me, the main reason for working with MAN Rollo is their fast delivery times and the commitment of their people. Dennis and the MAN Rollo team are working continuously to strengthen our partnership and are more than willing to share their expertise. We have to be flexible to succeed in the saturated European market and MAN Rollo has the same philosophy. MAN Rollo has a proactive approach and is always eager to help us solve operational problems related to our projects. In my opinion, our relationship has evolved from supplier/client to a partnership. And MAN Rollo understands that partnership means trust, reliability and mutual assistance. MAN Rollo is currently our main partner for the supply of engines and I’m confident that this will continue for a long time.’
‘I believe it’s time for special solutions in the CHP market, such as syngas solutions, CHP & Steam generation, micro-cogeneration, greenhouse solutions, and so on. It would be great if MAN Rollo could help its customers to run those kinds of projects and develop the necessary technologies. Perhaps this will be the next step in our business relationship.’
