RMB/ENERGIE - a company makes history
RMB/ENERGIE GmbH with headquarters in Saterland in Lower Saxony is a producer of cogeneration units and since 2015 part of the YANMAR group. Thanks to a state-of-the-art configuration of the components, intelligent sound insulation and an intuitive control system, these units set new market standards with their compact and durable design and quiet, efficient and user-friendly operation.
RMB/ENERGIE has specialised in the development and production of cogeneration units with the highest efficiency for more than 10 years. The resulting reduction in CO² emissions and transfer losses due to local energy production also make a major contribution to a healthy environment worth living in.
RMB/ENERGIE GmbH employs over 100 people and continues to grow. In addition, the neoTower® 9.5 was presented this year and is now available. The newly developed CHP unit is based on a 3-cylinder engine from YANMAR and delivers 9.5 kW electrical and 22.7 kW thermal output.
RMB/ENERGIE and YANMAR are growing even closer together. A new company logo now also visually underlines the affiliation. The new corporate design now runs through all areas of the company.
RMB/ENERGIE is celebrating its 10th company anniversary this year and employs over 90 people at this time.
In April 2018, RMB/ENERGIE began building a new logistics hall with an integrated office wing. The approximately 400m² warehouse includes a multi-storey shelving system as well as the logistics office including goods receipt and goods issue. The office wing covers around 350m² and offers ten offices and various social and meeting rooms for up to 30 employees.
Global innovation at the SHK: With the neoTower® LIVING, RMB/ENERGIE supplies the first cogeneration unit for family homes. With an electrical capacity of 2.0 kW it is ideal for use in homes accommodating one or two families.
RMB/ENERGIE currently has a workforce of 70.
At the beginning of the year RMB/ENERGIE moved into the new production facilities in Ramsloh. The company celebrated their inauguration with a “New Year’s Reception 2015“. The 175 invited guests from the world of politics and industry included Franz-Josef Holzenkamp, Member of the Bundestag, and B.KWK Vice President Prof. Dr. Martin Maslaton.
The globally operating Yanmar Group acquired a majority holding in RMB AG. The goal is joint development of cogeneration units with Yanmar engines and continuing market leadership in the micro-CHP sector.
At the ISH Frankfurt 2015 the first exclusive cogeneration unit with a Yanmar engine was presented with the designation neoTower® Premium M+. This cogeneration unit is available with an electrical capacity of 25.0 kW and 30.0 kW.
At the Hannover Messe trade fair in 2014, RMB/ENERGIE introduced the latest member of the neoTower® family – the neoTower® 50.0. A completely new software was also developed at the time for this cogeneration unit that makes CHP control, monitoring and operation even more efficient and simpler. Due to the increasing demand for the premium RMB/ENERGIE cogeneration units, the company was forced to relocate to a site that did justice to the company’s growth. The production facility footprint no longer met these needs.
In the summer of 2014, RMB/ENERGIE acquired a 1.1 hectare site with two halls on the main road in Saterland-Ramsloh. Another hall was erected and comprehensive conversion work (administration, production, state-of-the-art test benches) was carried out.
In the spring of 2012, the performance range of the neoTower® was extended by two additional electrical capacity performance classes of 16.0 and 20.0 kW.
At the end of 2011, the neoTower® with its revolutionary space-saving design and an electrical capacity of 5.0, 7.2 and 11.0 kW was launched. Production of the “Silence Complete” was then discontinued.
Founded in 2008 with an initial team of four in Saterland, Lower Saxony, RMB/ENERGIE GmbH has focused exclusively on the development and production of cogeneration units. In 2010 the compact “Silence Complete” cogeneration unit was ready for series production and was successfully brought to market. The “Silence Complete” is available in four performance classes ranging from 3.8 kW el to 7.2 kW el.
