Vacon helps drive energy savings
01 April 2008
Vacon and PPT Drive Systems have joined forces to offer energy efficient solutions based on variable speed ac drives. The partnership offers free site surveys, energy saving calculations and complete solutions to tackle climate change.
Using variable speed drives (VSDs) to control the speed of motors delivers big energy savings in industrial and commercial applications. VSDs enable more cost effective production, reduce the carbon footprint and play a part in meeting government emission targets. Despite this, less than one in ten electric motors in the world is fitted with a VSD, whereas there is financial justification for using a VSD with at least one in three electric motors.
The partnership between Vacon and PPT Drive Systems offers customers from all industrial segments the opportunity to see how energy efficient drives can reduce energy usage and cut their energy bills. The collaboration will benefit an array of different businesses, including hospitals, supermarkets, banks, airports, water treatment sites, offshore oil and gas applications and manufacturers.
Richard Horsman of PPT Drive Systems comments, “Vacon is one of the world’s leading ac drive manufacturers, and PPT specialises in the applications of VSD products and systems. The partnership between us offers a solid resource, and by tackling climate change through energy efficient drive systems, we can offer our customers versatile solutions and substantial cost savings.”
