Danfoss has invested large resources in the high power drives business over recent years:

• A modular technology platform allowing highly customised qual-ity drives to be mass produced and tested at the factory.
• Power range up to 1.4 MW – and new power range extensions in the pipeline.
• Innovative power component design with 98 % efficiency
• World class manufacturing facili-ties. The high power plant and competence centre in Rockford, Illinois, USA was rebuilt and doubled in size to 11,400 m2 in 2009/2010.

However, high power customers expect more than just the physical product. Our sales people must un-derstand the customer needs in order to offer the best solution:

What is the purpose of the machin-ery? What type of motor? What are the installation conditions? What is the power supply network? Are there any issues with harmonic distortion? All this requires in-depth application knowledge and solid engineering skills.


The people behind the product are just as important as the product. This applies to the Danfoss sales compa-nies as well as our network of sales and service partners. We conduct regular training programmes for our own staff and partners to maintain a solid expertise – backed by the experts in the factories in Denmark and USA.

2010 was by far the most successful year for high power drives in the his-tory of Danfoss.

In Northern Europe the sales of high power drives and harmonic mitiga-tion solutions increased by 30% in 2010. Typical applications include: Water and waste water, district heating and power plants, refrigera-tion systems, industrial processing machinery and marine systems.

Most of the growth was seen in areas where the high power drives have contributed to large reductions in en-ergy consumption and CO2 emissions – highlighting Danfoss’ position as the Climate & Energy Company.
