Roughly one year after the first informal talks on Hannover Messe 2015 we have signed an agreement about the cooperation in the Italian market with the longterm MAN partner Ranieri Tonissi S.p.A. in June 2016.
In the meantime we have exhibited on the Tonissi Power stand at the Key Energy fair in Rimini and received orders for six compact CHP units of different power classes. One of these units already provides heat and power for residential buildings in Milano, a second one is delivered on site and will start operation in the heating period.
Both partners are confident about the cooperation in the future: „Our Italian partners are experts, Tonissi knows the MAN engines like nobody else in Italy. They also have several years of experience in mid-sized cogeneration technology, which reduces the necessary technological adjustment to a minimum. The communication is very pleasant, open and focused on solutions“ comments our sales manager Joachim Voigt.
Antonio Martelli who lived many years in Germany adds: „Since our company founding in 1886 we have collected many experiences, several of them in the recent years with CHP unit manufacturers from Germany. We have decided deliberately for SOKRATHERM in the 50-550 kW class because the quality of their machines convinces us just as the competence of the people does. We’re looking forwad to work with them on many further CHP projects.
