winners of the john munck award 2019

This year the John Munck Award is presented to Ignacio Picatoste, Vanderson Lopes, Julio Tome, Alberto Arcos, Eduardo Garcia and Jesus Lavilla who work in Power Technique's division Power and Flow in Zaragoza and in Brazil. Together they drove the TwinPower concept and launch to market to a new level, making it a global product. The TwinPower is based on two generators, which are powered by smaller engines, that behave as one large one, while providing far more flexibility and contributing to a lower overall cost of ownership for the customers. It comes with innovative features, such as a remote cooling system and a touch screen panel.
